Making Your Style Work For You Rather Than Against You - Valerie Atkin & Jerry Wagner

This highly interactive (and fun) session will begin with a model for effective facilitation and the skills required to make the model sing. By overlaying the Enneagram we’ll identify the inherent strengths and weaknesses of each style. Specific suggestions for addressing weaknesses will be offered. You’ll have an opportunity to complete a personal Facilitator Scorecard to assess yourself as a facilitator. This instrument, along with a Facilitator Development Plan you will receive, may be used after the session to gather feedback from others to further enhance your individual development plan. We will end by focusing on how all this applies to facilitating Enneagram workshops. Handouts will include agendas for various types and lengths of sessions. We will hold a drawing for an hour of follow up to help you stay on track as you apply what you have learned.
