One of the most authoritative voices and thought leaders in the modern Enneagram movement, Beatrice Chestnut has been studying and working with the Enneagram for 30 years. She teaches workshops on the Enneagram internationally, focusing on using it as a tool for personal and professional transformation.
Beatrice, who has a PhD in communication and an MA in clinical psychology, is the author of two books, The Complete Enneagram: 27 Paths to Greater Self-Awareness, and The 9 Types of Leadership: Mastering the Art of People in the 21st-Century Workplace, and co-author of The Enneagram Guide to Waking Up. She served on the board of directors of the International Enneagram Association (IEA) for six years and was president of the IEA in 2006 and 2007.
Over the last eight years, the center of gravity of her work has shifted from depth psychotherapy to executive coaching, leadership development, and team coaching. She offers trainings and retreats based on the Enneagram internationally through Chestnut Paes Enneagram Academy, the Enneagram school she co-founded with Brazilian Enneagram expert Uranio Paes, focusing on using it as a tool for personal and professional transformation.
Beatrice is passionate about supporting people in doing the work of creating more fulfilling relationships, work, and life experiences. She views the Enneagram as an important vehicle for the larger, all-important goal of raising global consciousness so we can, collectively, create a more positive, sustainable, and self-aware world community.
