Wisdom of the Ages
The Enneagram is an intricate, holistic personality system that dates back nearly 2,000 years (think Myers-Briggs or DiSC on steroids). When understood correctly, the Enneagram identifies a person's core compulsion and provides a way out to greater self-awareness and self-mastery.
Dr. Patrick Bishop has spent over one hundred hours and more than ten years in Enneagram training and research.
While the core of this system can be presented in shorter timeframes, it's recommended to do this training in a workshop setting over several hours or multiple days.
Wisdom of the Things
Sometimes the "things" can teach us how to be better leaders than our human counterparts. As German poet Rainer Maria Rilke says, "This is what the things can teach us: to fall, patiently to trust our heaviness."
In this uplifting and fun presentation, Dr. Bishop presents leadership lessons we can learn from the "wisdom of the things." Through personal stories of his life, combined with life lessons of the things around us, you'll be inspired to take a fresh look at the mundane and how those things sometimes know more than we give them credit for.
Begin at the Beginning
Too often, leadership training is focused on external issues such as structure, delegation or compensation. While these are important areas, authentic leadership and real change comes from within first. It doesn't matter how many external influence techniques a person learns if they're driven by ego compulsions. As the popular adage goes, "You can't pour perfume on a skunk!" This workshop begins at the beginning with the development of self-awareness and the skills of self-mastery. These life practices are valueable for anyone looking to improve their leadership capability.
