What is YOUR type?
The Enneagram has been the most powerful personal development tool that I have learnt in my coaching journey.
WHAT IS THE ENNEAGRAM?
The enneagram is a personality typology system which looks in to our core motivations.
The system says there are 9 different core motivations that we all fit in to, but the system is not there to put us in to boxes, it’s there to show us what boxes we are already in and HOW we can learn to move past the fixations of our type.
OUR TYPE IS THE LENSE WE SEE THE WORLD THROUGH.
I use this system with all the people I Coach because it gives you a really great roadmap towards self improvement.
WHAT THE ENNEAGRAM HAS DONE FOR ME:
- It's shown me that I’m not alone in some of my life views. I often felt like I was broken because I saw things differently to many people in my life and I realised that was because I have a different underlying motivation. No one type is better than another, they are just different.
- It’s changed my relationships to friends and family because knowing their type means I can understand them better. Imagine if you could learn to literally see the world in the way say your partner does? My husband is a type 6 and 6’s have a primary focus on Safety and Security. I used to think that my husbands ocd like attention to certain things around the house were ridiculous and frustrating but now I can see why he sees certain things the way he does and I have more empathy for his point of view.
- It’s allowed me to let go of some of the issues I’d often get fixated over and which caused me much frustration. I have always been obsessed with freedom and not feeling fenced in. My type helped me see why. I now know what to do when those feelings come up.
I would love to chat type with any of you that are interested. I am an Enneagram coach so can explain the system and I have work sheets I can send out if you want to know more.
