What is the Enneagram?

The Enneagram is a framework of the 9 types of personalities we see in the world.  It’s more than simply a list of behaviors that people display in certain situations.  The Enneagram deals with the level of our deepest motivations, desires, and needs.  It helps you see clearly both your superpower and your Achilles heel, which are two sides of the same coin.  It helps you recognize the self-image that you have created for yourself – the one that brings you pride and protection, but at some point also begins to feel confining and limiting.

The Enneagram is not meant to put a label on or stereotype anyone.  It is for personal insight and growth that shows you the way out of that box – out of the limiting patterns.  It provides a level of understanding that makes all that effort you’re putting into change effective.  The Enneagram teaches you how to counter the unhealthy tendencies of your personality so you can find a different way to fix the problem.

Understanding our own Enneagram type allows us to see and understand patterns of thinking and behaving that are so automatic that we aren’t consciously aware of them. While most of the time, these patterns work well for us there are also ways in which they hinder our effectiveness and personal growth.  Greater self-awareness is an essential first step in transformation and growth, and in our experience the Enneagram is the most powerful and accurate tool for greater self- awareness.  Once we see and accept these patterns, we are able to make more conscious choices about our actions.

Enneagram insights can also shed light on what may be preventing you from living harmoniously, accessing self-understanding and compassion, and being who you truly want to be.

My Experience with the Enneagram

My first exposure to the Enneagram was when I needed coaching in 2016 – a time when I felt stuck in my career.

From then it served and supported my own journey to find success and fulfilment.  After completing my coaching certification and accreditation, I focused on becoming certified as an Enneagram practitioner.

Today, I use it with all my clients and many business teams I engage with as the first step of my LURE methodology i.e.  “Learning” about yourself.       

Over the last year I have created meaningful virtual experiences with rave reviews from my clients who were intrigued by the revelation of their true selves and excited by the possibilities and potential for growth that were uncovered.

Enneagram Offerings

The Enneagram – a universal symbol of human purpose and possibility – is an excellent tool for doing the hardest part of consciousness work: realizing, owning and accepting your strengths and weaknesses

Discover Yourself

Enneagram Coaching is offered as a once-off engagement or as part of a longer term personal, professional, or corporate team coaching engagement.

The Enneagram comes from Greek mythology, meaning 9.  It is a set of 9 Personality Types or Core Type often described as a Map of Human Nature and Map of Self-awareness.

We find all the 9 types in us – 9 lenses in which we see the world, but there is one that stands out as the closest to you – your basic Personality Type or Core Type.

The home-base that drives your motivation.

The journey with the Enneagram is an integrated one where we move through 4 levels:

  1.  Unconscious Incompetence
  2.  Conscious Incompetence
  3.  Conscious Competence
  4.  Unconscious Competence
