Sean Smith - Integrative Enneagram Solutions, South Africa

Michelle was excellent in helping me understand my type from different angles, it was the first session and very first time I learn about the Enneagram, and she did great job to help me understand the overall concept, in a simple and neutral way, and enable me to further study that led to our next session to the Team Report.

During the team report sessions, me and my team members all enjoyed the group discussion. Particularly, she didn't only help us to understand our enneagram type as a group, but also shared some practical tools/resource and communication skills that could be helpful for us in real work situation. My team members mentioned many times to me that they really liked her ways of approach during the workshop, and her enthusiastic attitude that brought us into the conversation and contribute, which is essential for a team to work together.
