“I enjoy working with Ipek and the Enneagram tool and have done so in several settings: 1:1, small team and whole department . Through knowing and understanding my Enneagram type I have developed a better understanding of myself especially some instinctive reactions and patterns. As a result I have been able to recognize these reactions early , change course and to free me up to develop an authentic leadership style that has made me a more effective and motivated leader . In addition it has taught me how to be more resilient and better manage stress. I would highly recommend Ipek and the Enneagram workshop to any individual and team!” – C.L., Medical Director of major Biotech Company

“I came across The Deep Coaching Program after 20 years of experience as an executive coach. Given my commitment to learning as a lifelong endeavor I was seeking new ways to hone my craft. However, I was very surprised to discover that at this point in my career I would find a development process that was so life-changing! Both in terms of my personal development and in terms of what I can now offer clients, DCI has provided a rich array of tools and capacities that enable accessing and operating from our wiser, more powerful and more compassionate Essence.” Ipek Serifsoy
