Neuro-Linguistic Enneagram (NLE) Practitioner Certification
5-day Experiential Course to coach the personality directly and work with diversity.
Diversity is one of the greatest causes of tension in the modern workplace. The chance of having a boss or co-worker who thinks and makes decisions exactly like you is one in a million. Therefore, having the ability to align with people who have different personalities, maturity levels, perspectives and working styles is an important factor that helps people thrive in their career.
The Neuro-Linguistic Enneagram is a powerful profiling system that makes working with different personalities clear and predictable.
It is commonly adopted by Professional Coaches, HR, Learning & Development, Leaders, Consultants, Managers and Sales Professionals for:
Help people expand their mental, emotional and behavioural flexibility; overcome deep-rooted personality obstacles. Coach people to go beyond the personality limitations that prevent them from performing at their best.
Understand yourself at a deeper level – what drives you, how and where you sabotage yourself unconsciously, what holds you back.
See yourself through the eyes of other people, how they actually perceive you and what are the things about yourself that you are unaware of.
Facilitate a common language to appreciate personality differences in teams and organisations. Build inclusiveness and synergy and promote strength in diversity.
The Neuro-Linguistic Enneagram (NLE) is an International Enneagram Association (IEA) Accredited Training Program.
“The FINAL FRONTIER is stepping beyond your personality box, bringing out the Better Version of You.”
“This sentence sums up a transformational 5 days of NLE with Mind Transformation!
I am usually one who is sceptical about personality tools as it tends to put us in a box and generalised who we are. It is not until I did my first NLE test and read my profiling report that everything starts to fall into place for me. Finally, the jigsaw puzzle is starting to form a picture of who I am – I was able to “see” myself clearly for once, free from the blind spots from my own filters.
This was such an amazing experience for me.
I credit this experience to the Founder of Mind Transformation, Barney and the NLE Trainers, Agnes, Seok Hian and Joseph. With their pure intention to hold up the mirror for me, they created a safe space for me to unveil who I am inside and to show up fully and authentically to my course mates. This was very liberating for me to be able to be accepted and understood exactly as how I meant things to be.
My key takeaway from this course is being able to gain access to the inner world of the different personality types. I came to realise that even though everyone is different due to our capabilities and preferences, there is one thing we have in common, is that NONE of us wants to be judged and ALL of us want to be ACCEPTED for who we are.
I highly recommend this course to anyone who wishes to have a deeper understanding of the conflicts they have within themselves and with others. As this course is put together with a lot of heart and mind, I assure you that it will be delivered with the best possible means to bring out the BETTER VERSION of YOU!”

People collaborate, include others and contribute when they are their Best Healthy Selves.
The Neuro-Linguistic Enneagram helps people see the very structure of their personality (and how they are expressing themselves at their worst and at their best).
Most psychometric and personality tests (DISC, MBTI, StrengthsFinder etc.) explain your behaviour, strengths and thinking preferences. The Neuro-Linguistic Enneagram offers you a deeper understanding of your subconscious, your psychic structure. Learn the WHY that has been driving your behaviours, decisions and emotions—including the times when you behaved out of your usual character.
The purpose and strengths of NLE are to systematically, tangibly and sustainably develop Personality Health.
Many Professional Coaches and Consultants love the Enneagram for its deeply accurate personality insights. However, beyond insights, it is challenging to help people accelerate their development as there is no guidebook on how to exercise sustainable change. This is the very reason why we developed NLE!
Over the last 20+ years, we’ve been applying Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) & Multi-Intelligences (MI) to coach Enneagram-specific challenges. MI-NLP enabled our clients to tangibly improve themselves, not just talk about their Enneagram-awareness. This programme is a distillation of our experience and research – a practical NLE development framework to bring about sustainable positive change within a short span of time:
- [IQ] Change your unconscious Language Patterns that cause people to misunderstand your best intentions.
- [IQ] Develop a keener awareness of your Mindset Limitations and how to re-wire them.
- [EQ] Utilise Emotions as Data Points to understand your concerns and insecurities.
- [PQ] Develop congruence and self-trust through Physiology and Somatics Coordination.
- [SQ] Build self-acceptance and purpose through understanding your Relationship with Self, Others and the World.
- [IQ–EQ–PQ] Embrace diversity congruently with Behavioural, Mental and Emotional flexibility.
“The most valuable thing about NLE would be the Multi-Intelligence Neuro-Actionables.”
“It has deepened my understanding of my own and other Enneagram types not just in my mental knowing space, but in other Multi-Intelligences that include EQ, SQ and PQ. Through the various interacting activities, I become strongly aware of the connection between my authentic being, my whys, how I am, my blind spots and how and why I respond / react in particular ways to others. It has also increased deeply within my level of acceptance of self and others, embrace my past and reconcile that with the present and affirm my strengths as a coach.
This is one ultra-valuable self-development programme that you DEFINITELY would not want to miss. Because with the NLE team’s strong facilitation and effective style, you become empowered to look deep within yourself and distil the actionables you can use to move ahead to put into practice every day.”
– Sue-Ann Chan
Educator & Coach
Especially if you’re a Coach or intending to become one,
the NLE coaching framework enables you to translate Awareness into Practical Whole-Person Development.
The impact of the Enneagram is not just in its insightfulness. The Enneagram would really make a difference when the Coach and client are able to turn self-awareness into observable behavioural, emotional, mental changes.
- Be licensed to issue your clients a comprehensive 18-page Neuro-Linguistic Enneagram Professional Report, revealing their deeper desires and inner struggles that they may not have been able to verbalise.
- Hold a growth-enabling conversation using the Impression vs Intention frame in the report. This is where your clients would see more clearly how others actually experience them.
- Master the skills to facilitate self-awareness without making your clients feel judged or intruded upon.
- Gain client buy-in, and develop a trusting coaching relationship.
- Utilise the NLE Debrief & Coaching Framework and exercises – designed to help you juggle insights and applications, staying present to the coaching process to systematically raise your clients’ development markers.
- With the value you’re capable of offering, this puts you in the league of Enneagram Coaches who charge a good fee for coaching.
“I felt I have improved 2 notches on a scale of 1 – 10, and I do feel more confident to coach people as a profession and in my workplace.”
“This Enneagram course is definitely a “must-go”! There is openness and willingness of trainers and participants to exchange ideas and help each other to succeed and overcome obstacles. There’s ample space for self-reflection and exchange of ideas.
The NLE profile report structure is very well designed and it’s very systematic and easy to follow. It connects the dots together by linking practical neuro-actionables for each personality type.”

If you want to realise your full potential,
NLE is the pathway to a definitely Better YOU!
Most people see themselves as what they can do, what are the skills and capabilities they have. Others see themselves from the angle of what they don’t have: not disciplined, not beautiful, not good enough…
Really, you are NOT limited by your skills & behaviours.
You are way more than that!
This programme enables you to:
- Find your Enneagram Type and develop a genuine acceptance of your personality structure.
- Understand the subconscious instinctual drives (Enneagram Subtypes) and positive intentions that drive your behaviours, and how to express them in ways that benefit everyone.
- Know how to catch your personality downward spiral, and how to exercise your healthy qualities more and more.
- Apply the NLE framework of development with practical exercises you can implement incrementally.
Why choose Mind Transformations?
Mind Transformations is an NLP Elder and an Enneagram Pioneer since 2000. The development of NLE was initiated by Barney Wee & Agnes Lau, who have a combination of 40+ years of experience applying NLE in their own lives, training and imparting the skills to organisations and individuals.
What makes NLE uniquely valuable is its incorporation of Multiple Intelligences, broadly re-categorised from Dr. Howard Gardner’s work into Physical, Mental, Emotional and Spiritual Intelligences (PQ, IQ, EQ, SQ). The NLE change-work is not simply positive thinking or asking people good questions. It’s about re-training and harnessing our Multiple Intelligences for congruent, sustainable changes.
Mastery comes from working with all Nine Enneagram Types. This programme offers you a safe environment for practice and internalisation.
The Enneagram is a profiling system about the complex human psyche, and hence it is best learned by interacting with human beings and stretching your flexibility. One of the hallmarks of Mind Transformations’ programmes is our safe learning environment, upheld by our trainers and community of practitioners who routinely encourage and enrich each others’ growth. As you experience each Enneagram Type and genuinely see people’s deeper desires and fears, you’d realise that many of your problems with people are really just a lack of understanding.

“Not only I get to experience my change, I also see transformations happening in others within just a few days.”

The NLE programme with Mind Transformations provides me not just with the knowledge but the people, environment and the community for me to start changing myself in a meaningful way.

“Mastering over one’s ego is a great gift we can give to people around us. You can receive this gift at the NLE programme with Mind Transformations.
I’m impressed with the synergy that Agnes, Seok Hian and Joseph brought to the programme. They are sensitive to the class’ needs and flow in and out naturally to meet that. They were objective in describing each type and allow participants to embrace the diversity in the room.”
– Irene Chia

The course has upgraded a better version of myself to face my challenge courageously and positively.”
– Joelle T

The most significant shift I’ve experienced in this programme is becoming a more effective individual. In short, self-mastery in terms of vivid clarity and a stronger awareness of my intentions, and translating my intentions to the desired impression in any social setting.”

Do I have to be an NLP Practitioner or Master Practitioner to do this programme?
No. This programme is designed for anyone with or without NLP background to master the applications of Neuro-Linguistic Enneagram. You’ll pick up the key foundations for Multi-Intelligence NLP in the course and learn how to facilitate incremental change for yourself and others.
I am a graduate of Mind Transformations’ NLP programmes. How does this programme enhance my development?
If you’re already an NLP Master Practitioner, you already have some Enneagram foundation. This programme takes you deeper into Enneagram Multi-Intelligences and Instinctual Subtypes, how to apply the NLE framework of growth, and especially how to help people who don’t have NLP and Enneagram background to develop themselves; with tangible tracking.
If you’re an NLP Practitioner, we highly recommend this programme and the NLP Master Practitioner to you, to raise your Self-Mastery and the value you bring to the people around you.
I’m a Professional Coach and have undergone coach training. How will this programme benefit me?
The NLE enables you to profile your clients with deeply accurate personality insights. One of the challenges for practising Coaches is how to enable people to be more self-aware, to see their own self-sabotages without telling them so. This is the strength of NLE, because your clients answer simple questions, and the report reveals their subconscious personality structure. The profiler helps you improve your coaching effectiveness, and your clients can focus on where their development would matter the most. This will be systematically tracked with bespoke coaching tools.
Is this course for me if I don’t want to become a Coach?
Yes. You’ll benefit tremendously by knowing yourself deeply. This programme is first about self-awareness, and then self-acceptance and self-development. You’ll learn about your unconscious insecurities, worst fears and positive intentions. You’ll learn the same about other Enneagram Types, experience them first hand and learn how to work with them.
A big part of the VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous) world today is about working well with others, developing synergy. NLE enables you to build quicker rapport and deeper relationships with a wide range of people.
I’ve done other Enneagram programmes. What are the advantages of this programme?
The advantages of the Neuro-Linguistic Enneagram Practitioner Certification are:
- Experiential learning that focuses on deepening one’s BEING & practice as an Enneagram practitioner, not head knowledge overwhelm
- The easy-to-use Enneagram profiler
- Comprehensive (but non-technical) professional report
- How to apply a systematic debrief & coaching framework to raise self-mastery via Multi-Intelligences
- A Community of light-minded Practitioners who continuously apply the Multi-Intelligence NLP to develop their personality health
The report enables you to introduce the Enneagram to your clients with less jargonistic explanations, while maintaining the deep, accurate insights that promote self-awareness. The framework shows you how to raise one’s psychological health through shifting language patterns, somatics, emotional patterns and mindset limitations. These are the unique developments we’re contributing to the Enneagram community.
How is the NLE different from MBTI, DISC or StrengthsFinder?
MBTI, DISC and StrengthsFinder are very good at classifying your strengths, thinking styles, communication preferences and behavioural traits. They don’t explain what drives you, why you are the way you are. NLE reaches deeper to uncover your core desires and positive intentions. Through this awareness, you become more capable of shifting the way you express your intentions. You can tangibly and positively influence your behaviour, thinking styles and strengths, and track your development.
