WHAT IS THE ENNEAGRAM?

 

The Enneagram is often seen as a “personality assessment”, but it’s so much more than that. The Enneagram framework is a tool for personal development. It’s rooted in 9 main archetypes, with many subtypes and variations of those types. By combining psychology, spirituality, and somatics, it serves as an amazing starting point for awareness, acceptance, and accountability in our own development and our relationships.

 

WHY IS THE ENNEAGRAM AN EFFECTIVE TOOL FOR GROWTH?

Our personality traits are really just the ways we interact with the world. Many assessments focus here - on our behaviors, looking at how we act/what we do. What do we do in happy situations or stressful situations? What qualities do we project out into the world?

However, two people may behave in similar ways but they may have different drivers behind that behavior - or different reasons for behaving that way. When you can identify the WHY behind our behaviors, our unconscious patterns are easier to spot.

The Enneagram is widely recognized as one of the best tools to build self-awareness and emotional intelligence because it goes beyond the WHAT to the WHY. Determining your Enneagram type will not only tell you about your behavioral traits and strengths, but it delves deeper into your core motivations, enabling you to better understand yourself and make meaningful changes in your work/life.

 

The Enneagram helps us use our behaviors as an entryway to better understand why we are the way we are - and then work to change the unhelpful patterns that keep us stuck. So instead of saying "I’m a people pleaser" or "I’m a perfectionist" and just concluding that you will always be that way, you can truly understand WHY being that way helps you create safety in your mind, heart, or body and choose a new approach.

 

THIS IS WHERE THE REAL CHANGE STARTS

FINDING YOUR ENNEAGRAM TYPE

Finding your Enneagram type can be a confusing and sometimes overwhelming experience. There are many tests online, but the reality is that all of these questionnaires have limitations. Online tests can only capture your behavior, not your motivations. We can be very conscious of our behavior, but our core motivations still often remain unconscious. The best way to discover your type is through thoughtful reflection, reading, and self-observation, or you can work with someone that is trained to guide you in the process.

 

The Enneagram framework is truly transformational in many people’s lives, and identifying your type is the first step in the process. If it’s not accurate, it can send you down a path that may not be very relevant for you, and definitely not transformational.

  • Integration Discussion: We will discuss how your Type structure and core motivations play a role in your life and relationships, and find ways to apply your insights to your daily life and career.

  • After the session, I will send you a customized Enneagram Growth Guide with resources, reflections, and exercises to dive deeper into your type and continue your development.
