What Others Are Saying

As a ministry leader, I was excited to step outside my normal routine to be stretched and go deeper with the Enneagram. I knew a little bit, but now look at both my personal and work relationships through a fresh, helpful lens. Learning from Dr. Kastens was a great experience. He’s knowledgeable, pastoral, wise and funny, too.”

​​“Leading a growing church staff comes with a unique set of challenges – how to navigate healthy conflict, understanding different personalities, growing in our emotional maturity, and leading yourself well. I invited Dr. K in to lead our staff through his study of the Enneagram and how it applies to each of us individually and collectively. Not only did we gain a better understanding of how God has uniquely wired each of us, but it also increased our alignment and capacity as a staff team. I highly recommend inviting Dr. K to lead your staff through his Enneagram coaching!”

​​“Leading up to the [Enneagram] class I was skeptical of what I would learn and how it would genuinely affect my life or ministry.  I was very surprised how effective and important it has become. I am thankful for this new knowledge and these new practices. The Enneagram has been a great tool for me to see who I really am, who I can be, and showing me a path to get there.”

​​​“Ron created a safe space for our team members to share and have fun as we learned together about our unique wiring. The workshop was well-paced, engaging, and interactive. Our time together went fast and is still being referenced by teammates months later.”

Dr. Nikki Hunt

Executive Minister, First Christian Church, Johnson City, TN

I had Ron come out to walk my staff and team leaders through the Enneagram and it was all they could talk about for weeks! Not only did it help us grow as individuals, it helped us grow closer as a team. My staff now has a better understanding of their team leaders and a better understanding of how the highs and lows of ministry impact their ability to serve and lead in the church. Over the past four years we have done multiple trainings, but this was the best. It was the most fun and it was the most enlightening.

​​“Thank you Ron! Your presence, peace, and mentorship continue to fortify my growth as Christian husband, father and coach. The time we spend together always enhances my love for others, joy of the moment, and guides my commitment to leadership development!”

“Appalachia Service Project (ASP) reached out to Ron to have him lead an Enneagram workshop for our group of year-long fellows and their leadership team. Ron adapted his presentation and conversation with us so well! We highly recommend Ron Kastens to lead your organization through an Enneagram workshop and we look forward to working with Ron again for future sessions. He is knowledgeable, engaging, and passionate about making sure each person gets the most out of the workshop. Thank you Ron!”
