Using the the Riso-Hudson Enneagram Type Indicator (RHETI) in Self-Inquiry, Coaching & Consulting - with Brian Taylor & Russ Hudson, hosted by Catherine Bell
Over the years there has been some controversy about using tests in Enneagram work, yet people new to the system are generally interested in taking tests to get them started in their journey of exploration. We have found that when test results are combined with some good feedback and coaching, they can launch important exploratory conversations that can help newcomers orient to the system and begin to develop the skills of self-observation. In the early 1990s, Don Richard Riso and Russ Hudson worked extensively on an Enneagram type test which they called the Riso-Hudson Enneagram Type Indicator. It is by far the most popular Enneagram test on the market and is one of the only independently validated Enneagram tests available. The RHETI has gone through several academic validation studies and has shown consistently accurate results. But beyond giving a probable diagnosis of a person’s dominant type, the RHETI can reveal many other details that can be extremely useful for coaching and personal development if one knows how to use this data.

In this free session, Russ will explain the construction of the RHETI and provide a number of insights into how it works, as well as tips on how to use it to gather more information about oneself or a client. He will also answer questions about the uses of the test.

He will be joined by Brian Taylor, the Vice President of the Enneagram Institute, who will offer information about the past and ongoing validation studies of the test and will answer questions about its development.

The session will be a total of 90 minutes, with about an hour of teaching, and 30 minutes of question and answer.

Dec 9, 2020 10:00 AM in Mountain Time (US and Canada)
