232: How to Use the Enneagram as a Coach, with Erica Vinson (Enneagram Series Part 5)



How can the tool of the Enneagram be used to enhance your coaching sessions? In this week’s episode, I’m joined by one of our RLP Team members Erica Vinson, who in addition to being REALIFE Process® Certified Master Coach, is also a Certified Enneagram practitioner.


In this episode, we’ll discuss:

  • How coaching is distinct from other helping professions
  • How the Enneagram can help you with self-management before, during, and after your coaching sessions
  • What active listening is, and why it matters for how you approach coaching conversations
  • Ways to use the Enneagram in your coaching sessions even if your client doesn’t know their type


The Enneagram is a great tool to help you both in your role as a coach, and as a support to your clients. I hope this episode gives you ideas for how the Enneagram can be one more essential tool in your coaching toolbelt!
