What is the Enneagram?
How can I be my best self – in my relationship and in my life? How can I learn to accept and understand my partner? How can I be a more effective parent? How can I communicate better?
Our modern world saturates us with confusing and conflicting messages about who we should be, how we should behave and what is important. We grapple with the need to keep growing and to become everything that we are capable of becoming, but it can be a difficult process of moving ahead only to fall back.
In this workshop you will learn about the Enneagram, a powerful tool for self-awareness, understanding and growth. Interrupt the old, unconscious patterns and limiting beliefs of your personality. See the motives for why you do what you do and the “warning signs” of behaviors that negatively impact your relationships and your own well-being.
The Enneagram is an ancient model that is widely used in personality modeling around the world today. The word “enneagram” comes from the Greek words ennea (“nine”) and gram (“something written or drawn”). Enneagram maps nine different personality types, or ego structures, around the way people think, feel and act in relation to the world, others and themselves. The Enneagram is much more than a personality profile that offers insight into core personality traits; it offers a deeper dive into the core motivations, defense mechanisms and fears that often lie in our unconscious.
Emotional Intelligence and the Enneagram
Emotional Intelligence is a combination of two factors: intrapersonal intelligence, which is the ability to understand, accept, and manage oneself, and interpersonal intelligence, the capacity understand the intentions, motivations and desires of others. Some believe that EQ cannot be taught, that we either have it or we don’t. But, the Enneagram is a developmental tool that allows us to develop EQ—revealing our patterns of thinking, feeling, and behaving and helping us to become more aware of and responsible for our own reactions.
The Enneagram is about people—how we are the same, how we are different, what makes us tick. It provides development activities that work best for our style to enhance our EQ and to also develop specific skills to transform your relationships, understand and appreciate your partner, have meaningful conversations and navigate conflict, and more.
