About Renee Siegel
Founder of 9 Paths to Success in Scottsdale, AZ
For more than 35 years, I have been privileged to work alongside individuals, families, and companies. With a counseling, consulting, and training background, I have worked with many to identify both their personal and professional goals, and then set a path to achieve them.
I am skilled at change management, adjusting and being flexible as needs shift in this fast moving world we live in.
Originally educated as a Marriage and Family Therapist in 1980 in Detroit, Michigan,
I cultivated a deep understanding that we all do not see the world in the same way, not only with gender, cultural, and age differences, but because of our accumulated life experiences.
After graduating, I was placed in a practicum in an inner-city treatment center to work with women who were alone, addicted, and raising children with very few parenting skills. From there, I went on to work in several hospital settings with a private practice on the side.
In my private practice, I dealt with professionals, both men and women, who were dealing with job dissatisfaction and deep desires to make more of their lives, and who were feeling disempowered.
I began to speak, train, and design programs early in my career and I was told repeatedly that I was warm, professional, skilled, and had much to offer as a trainer and presenter.
Always drawn to wellness and how that might help sustain change, I obtained additional certifications and licenses to incorporate complimentary aspects of care into my practice. I opened a wellness center where I worked together with other professionals to assist those impacted by addictions, those wanting to improve their personal and professional relationships and those seeking alternative solutions to their healthcare needs.
The agencies grew from one to three and as they grew, I was unprepared for just how busy I had become. At the same time, I was introduced to a tool that affected me profoundly, both personally and professionally called the enneagram which is a map that diagrams 9 uniques ways people think, feel, behave and see themselves as connected to something greater than themselves. The enneagram grew from an ancient system verbally shared through the ages in all the major wisdom traditions. Because the enneagram is not an easy work to pronounce or remember, I have called the use of the enneagram, “9 Paths to Success.”
As someone who is an eternal student, I thought it might be useful to manage my life and the stress of my growing business. I was also not prepared for how drawn I would be to learning about these 9 Paths and just how much more there was to learn. Later on, I quickly realized that the more I learned, the more I did not know.
Consulting with family and friends about their own businesses and how the 9 Paths to Success might be helpful, I began to conduct corporate trainings. One of the last certifications I have obtained to date is “The 9 Paths to Success in Business” ensuring that I could successfully transition between clinical and corporate settings and speak the appropriate language.
The 9 Paths allows me to work collaboratively with those I serve to assess and evaluate what is working and what is not. I find it to be accurate and able to address a wider variety of concerns because it is holistic and asks about the underlying motivations for thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. There are three areas I specialize in: Improving Relationships, Wellness Strategies, and Addictions.
I hope I can be of assistance to YOU!
