There are many reasons why I would highly recommend the AIM/ Enneagram accreditation
programme offered by Aephoria.
The Aephorian facilitators deep specialist theoretical and conceptual knowledge and critical
perspectives, as well as socio-historically and contextually sensitive technical/ procedural
application experience. They have deep and critically reflexive knowledge of adult ego development theory and its
application in OD and coaching which they have ingeniously combined with the Enneagram
with depth and rigour. They have connections to leaders in the field (to whom they
generously create access), and a wealth of application experience and insights that are the
result of decades of experience in complex organisational settings in multiple sectors, from
higher ed and public sector bureaucracies to listed corporates.
2. Learning Relevance and Learner Experience.
Facilitation, teaching, and learning expertise. The facilitators are brilliant and inspiring. They
provide a wealth of highly relevant theories that they have condensed and made extremely
accessible and simple. They also facilitate what one famous cognitive science calls
“participatory knowing” through their active, immersive and experiential teaching methods.
Through these one walks away with practical process and procedural competencies. I was
able to apply the learning in my own professional contexts immediately.
3. Practitioner and graduate support
They have the most unbelievably generous approach to post-training professional
development, learning application support, and continuous learning. Their supervision
sessions are powerful and transformative and are also creating a beautifully supportive
professional and global community of practice and knowledge sharing. This is proving to be
deeply inspiring and generating many wonderful connections and opportunities.
Aephoria operates from a tangibly ethical base of integrity. As a “customer” I feel a personal
values alignment with this group of people in terms of their benevolent social and human
intent, generosity, truthfulness, and respect for people and their investments. Having known
especially Lucille closely for a number of years, this is something that I have seen is
something I can absolutely trust, due to her level of self-awareness and visible/ tangible/
noticeable personal commitment to truth.
