Upcoming Events

 


Registration Closes end of day on August 13th. No Ticket Sales Day Of.
After registration you'll receive information about the Lodge, Spa, location and parking.

Join us on August 17th to dive in to learn the power of Enneagram and how to use the knowledge of numbers in your business to create a better work environment for team members and an overall better client experience.

Knowing and understanding what each number on the Enneagram Chart signifies and how to identify the characteristics in your co-workers and clients will help you be a better communicator and set your employees, team members, or clients up for success. You’ll better be able to play to their strengths and create an overall better work environment and customer experience!

Come listen and learn from our panel of very knowledgeable industry pros to hear how they use Enneagram in their businesses to create a happier, more effective and overall better work environment for the employees and guaranteed better experience for your clients.

Be sure to sign up and take the Enneagram test before the August 17th meeting.

Panelist Danae Johnsen recommends the test from the Enneagram Institute. It costs $12/test code but it’s the most thorough one she has seen, and includes a PDF of your top 3 scores and has been proven to be more accurate than any typology out there. Keep in mind, it’s also 140 questions and can take upwards of 40 minutes to take, but Danae has found for most folks it only takes 15-20 minutes. For best/most accurate results, she instructs folks to answer the questions with the idea that “in most scenarios, this tends to be true” or “this tends to NOT be true” because oftentimes, folks will find both answers to be true some of the time.
