What is the Enneagram?

The Enneagram (Ennea=9, Gram=Diagram) is simply a map (GPS) for self-discovery and
personal growth based on 9 basic personality types. The Enneagram accurately and clearly
describes why you think, feel and behave in particular ways based upon your core motivations,
including your core fears and core desires.

The power of the Enneagram is in its ability to harness and transform self-limiting behaviours
into life-enhancing personal empowerment. The gift of the Enneagram is that through
self-discovery, one can create and sustain meaningful and lasting relationships with others,
their Spiritual beliefs and themselves.

What is the Enneagram?

According to the Enneagram, each of the nine personality types is defined by a particular core belief about how the world works. This core belief drives your deepest motivations and fears — and fundamentally shapes a person’s worldview and the perspective through which they see the world and the people around them.

Our core beliefs are not necessarily incorrect, but they can be limiting and operate as “blind spots” for people. Understanding our Enneagram type and how it colours our perceptions can help us to broaden our perspective and approach situations more effectively. Understanding a person’s Enneagram type helps us to see why they behave the way they do. Each Enneagram type has a set of core beliefs that will consistently motivate them to take particular actions and guide them to make certain decisions. Behaviour that may seem confusing or contradictory can often be explained when we understand a person’s Enneagram type.

The Enneagram also helps us understand how people react to stress. By describing how each Enneatype adapts and responds to both stressful and supportive situations, the Enneagram shows opportunities for personal development and provides a foundation for the understanding of others.

The Enneagram is therefore a model focused on motive and not character traits. Our part is to help you explore your correct type with our engagements and holistic information shared during individual and group sessions.

Most importantly, the purpose is to enjoy this journey of becoming more self-aware, forgiving and optimistic towards yourself and your team members!
