Enneagram Courses 2015

‘Would thoroughly recommend this to others – most helpful course I have done! … I have become more tolerant of others – in their responses/ thoughts & understanding some of the reasoning they have behind this. It has allowed me to accept others & judge less because of knowing their personality type’ Penny.

‘I found out where I go to when I’m unhealthy and how I can put a stop to it before I really go down. How much I was in my head – to stop with the “self-talk” so much … it is a wonderful tool!!! … I feel a lot more confident – as I’m not so much in my head. I feel free from all the brain blab. I can pick myself up to a healthy level when I see myself going down the unhealthy track. Thank you so much for everything Pauline’ Nicky.

‘Talking in a group helped. Discussion activities were very helpful. I got insights into my behaviours. I love the biscuits & muffins – they were great. Everything was great … the people in the course were fantastic … I would say the course was very helpful to give people good direction in life … In dong the course I understand myself more & how I can lead females/ males on with my eyes when I am just being myself, & this is where confusion can come in with both parties. I can break this confusing pattern now by explaining what is happening to both people. Eyes are the windows to a people’s soul’ Barry.

‘The Enneagram has been a mind opener for me. It has helped me understand myself more and my relationships with others. It has been a fascinating insightful journey and my learning will be life-long. Highly recommend it’ Eileen.

It has helped me find solutions to when situations arise in my and in a much easier way! Keep up this fantastic work Pauline – you are making a huge difference in people’s lives’ xxx Nicky.

‘It gave me guidance to be more happy with myself (advice, tools etc) to find myself … Everything was great … it is a great course … Being over a long period and my memory is not good, but the course was very beneficial to help my emotional wellbeing & understand myself a lot better. I definitely recommend it to anyone struggling to understand life’ Glen.

‘I liked having greater understanding of self & the most useful direction of development. Plus positive about being able to change … Pauline presented the course clearly, with and insightful kin and encouraging communication with everyone’ Kerry.

‘I liked having greater awareness of self. Understanding why I might make certain decisions because of my type … I came to the course because I wanted to know why I did what I did sometimes. And yes, I learnt that I understand myself and others so much better. It hasn’t changed me or them but given me greater patience in dealing with others and a greater acceptance of myself and them. It’s been great, thankyou’ Sarah.

‘Dear Pauline,
Just writing to thank you for such a terrific Enneagram workshop last Saturday. It was a real eye-opener.

Enneagram Courses 2010

‘This is to advise that ………….. commissioned Dr Pauline Enright of ‘Socratic Solutions’ during 2010 to deliver several professional development programs to our management, staff and clients.

‘Managing Behaviour Successfully’, based on the Enneagram model of personality was delivered to 14 staff during April and May. The purpose was to help staff to better understand each other and improve working relationships and efficiency. I found this program beneficial as it revealed some of the causes of staff problems, and importantly, how we could better manage them. I also found the program beneficial on a personal level to help better understand and manage relationships outside the workplace.

Based on the success of this program, Pauline was invited to deliver a similar Enneagram program ‘Discovering Myself’ to several groups of clients of the ……….. between June and October. These clients are involved in a full-time, long-term caring role. The purpose of the course was to help them better understand and validate themselves as individuals and in their role as primary carers, and to better understand and manage the people they cared for. The program was very successful and elicited many positive and appreciative comments from attendees, along with requests to continue this program next year.

Following from this and on request from clients, we commissioned Pauline to facilitate a philosophy-based discussion program with clients during September and October, in which they could explore interesting and relevant topics in a user-friendly educational format. Participants especially appreciated this program, as it gave them opportunities for learning and discussion that would not normally be available to them due to their restricted opportunities as primary carers. Again, participants requested that we run further sessions.

Dr Enright conducted sessions professionally and efficiently. I would be happy to recommend her to future clients. We intend to ask Pauline to run further courses next year’ Peter, CEO.

Enneagram Courses 2009

‘I have always considered myself as someone that knows themselves very well. So when I was told I would be attending another personal development program boredom was the first word that came to mind. How wrong I was! At the time I attended Pauline’s Enneagram program I was feeling quite overcome with dealing with different personalities within my work team. Pauline’s program not only has helped me deal with my own personality and how it impacts on other people but why people behave the way they do.

Pauline’s sessions were well organized, relevant and varied. Her calm and level temperament made it easy to confide in her. Putting into practice what I have learnt has had a positive impact on my personal life and my work environment. I am calmer and more forgiving of other’s behaviour. This has been a learning experience that will have a positive impact on the rest of my life’ Carol.

‘I can truthfully say that the Enneagram changed my life. It gave me an insight into myself that I had not had previously. For the first time I became aware of how other people saw me. I found it extremely challenging, as it meant accepting that there are aspects of my personality that I did not like. However, it made me better able to manage myself because I now have a stronger inner self-control. I understand more about people and how to best interact with them to solve problems.

I am more conscious of, and more sensitive to, what is driving people and how to guide and motivate. I am calmer, less reactive and hopefully less serious when in my work environment. I would also recommend the Enneagram, run by Pauline, to those who supervise people and for team-building purposes’ Mary, team leader.

‘I have learnt many things – positive and negative sides of people’s behaviour’ Terry.

‘I couldn’t get over ……’s reaction – it was almost one of relief for him to know what his personality type was. He seemed really pleased.   Almost as if he finally understood himself.    And that is so good, and so good for the team, particularly me – so many things make sense now, and it means I can really help him explore what it is he wants to do, whereas before I thought he just didn’t care, was uninterested and had no motivation – how wrong can one be’ Sarah.
