Adizes PAEI and Enneagram

Adizes PAEI and Enneagram book has been getting a lot of visibility around the world. After the successful seminar at the Executive MBA51hyY+mtzCL._AA160_program at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, many requests for one-on-one coaching sessions for managers using PAEI & Enneagram were made. In Russia and Mexico, leading publishing houses are interested in translating and promoting the book in Russian and Spanish.

In Israel, the book was endorsed by the Technion’s prestigious coach training program. This is what Reuven Katz, head of the Coach Training Department at the Technion, and President of the Israeli Coaching Association (ICA) wrote:

“In the last fifteen years I’ve trained more than 6000 coaches. From my experience, the best and most effective tools are those that combine a large and profound theoretical and professional background, with the ability of a simple and practical application. The Adizes PAEI and Enneagram book presents step-by-step templates and tips for working with a variety of clients, together with a deep theoretical background, and is with no doubt an effective and useful tool for coaches.”
