Margot Burns

Board Vice President

I like to say I woke up with the Enneagram. Introduced to me at one of the lowest points of my life, learning this system was akin to being given a playbook for my life. I am a leadership coach with a passion for working with women leaders and their teams. I hold a master’s degree in rehabilitation counseling and bring over 30 years of experience as a business owner, certified rehabilitation and career counselor, expert witness and professional coach. I became certified as a Narrative Enneagram teacher in 2014 and have remained a devoted participant in the Menlo Park Learning Community. I believe that when you know yourself deeply, you have the freedom to live and lead with purpose, create impactful change, and inspire others to bring out the very best in themselves. My subspecialty is working with people who want to change their relationship with food and alcohol. I’m a certified Gray Area Drinking coach and use the Enneagram along with strategies based on neuroscience to combat stress and integrate new, healthy habits. I’m a strong believer in service. I volunteer with CWEE, the Center for Work Education Employment in Denver, an organization that supports the advancement of individual families and the prosperity of the community. I’m highly involved with the Enneagram Prison Project as an apprentice guide at San Mateo Prison and as a coach to formerly incarcerated individuals. I joined the board of TNE in 2021.
