Chloe is a certified Enneagram coach, teacher and speaker. She founded Dixit Ennéagramme, an accredited IEA school (AES) running three accredited training programs (ATP) in 2014. After completing the Narrative Tradition professional training program in Paris with Eric Salmon, she attended most of Ginger Lapid-Bogda’s intensive Enneagram programs, eventually becoming an EIBN Senior Member.
Holding a master’s degree in organizational communication from the Université de Montréal, she has worked in Marketing and Communication internationally for 12 years. French and Argentinean, she speaks English, French, and Spanish, and has traveled to more than 50 countries.
To her, one does not need to come from different countries or speak different languages to have intercultural dilemmas, miscommunications, and interpersonal toxicity: “As humans, we are all strangers to each other just by being unique within our own cultural identities. Greater self-awareness and understanding of individual differences, as the Enneagram map proposes, is a fundamental key to a path towards social peace: inclusiveness, diversity, openness, curiosity, compassion and benevolence.” She often tells her students: “Welcome to 350 years of self-growth, and we are all in it together!” explaining how, without concrete regular practices aiming at stretching one’s comfort zone and level of self-mastery, knowing one’s Enneagram profile doesn’t do anything, except maybe increase ego traps and spiritual bypasses.

I have studied and used the Enneagram for over a decade with both one-on-one clients as well as business teams. As a process implementation analyst for a venture capital company, I do company-wide as well as team development, personal development, and Enneagram typing. I teach the Enneagram from a psycho-spiritual perspective, and on a personal level, the wisdom of the Enneagram has given me a path forward in changing and shaping my personal growth, my life, and my relationships.
As a mentor, coach, writer, speaker, and advocate, I am passionate about empowering women, as I believe there is a wealth of untapped wisdom and goodness that our world needs in the hearts of women who are underdeveloped and, thus, underutilized. I also care deeply about social justice, particularly about the impact of race and poverty.
