AIM by aephoria: two assessments in one

AIM combines two assessments into one.
The first is a personality assessment (using the Enneagram), and the second measures where a person's worldview is developmentally.
Together, the Enneagram and the Maturity frameworks reveal a map of self/personality within the boundaries of a person's maturity.

For example, a mature Enneagram Three shows up differently from a less mature Enneagram Three.
Thus, AIM provides a map of self/personality through the Enneagram while also considering maturity.

AIM for Enneagram Assessment

The Enneagram is a launch pad for personal growth, illuminating the core motivations and fears that drive human behaviour. The globally renowned AIM for Enneagram assessment is meticulously designed to provide deeper insight into these personality complexities, efficiently comparing Enneagram styles and identifying your clients Trifix, primary type, and instinct.

AIM for Maturity Assessment

AIM for Maturity, built on 13 years of research, offers a unique look into personal growth and leadership. Through the completion of 15 open-ended sentences, participants get a clear view of their emotional, cognitive, and moral development. It's not about right or wrong answers; it's about genuine self-reflection.

Thank you so much Aephoria for the opportunity to be a participant in the Level 1 Enneagram program. I have studied the enneagram for many years and your perspective was refreshing and I found great

value in your wisdom and point of view.

Lucille’s facilitation was welcoming, open and warm and from the moment I was in her presence I knew that I was in good and capable hands. Her insights and deft handling of the group was just what we needed to get the most out of the program. Thank you again!!

Completing the Aephoria training has been transformative for me. The training has provided valuable practical tools and frameworks, including the Enneagram and Identity Maturity Framework, enhancing

both my coaching skills and personal development. The training continues to boost my confidence , and the team effectively models strategies for improving in my coaching work. The Aephoria training continues to be a highly enriching experience that is positively impacting both my professional and personal growth.

I would highly recommend the AIM/ Enneagram accreditation programme offered by Aephoria for the following reasons: The Aephoria 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.

The facilitators are brilliant and inspiring. They facilitate what one famous cognitive science calls “participatory knowing” through their active, immersive and experiential teaching methods.

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.

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.
