Here’s the thing I think a lot of people misunderstand about the Enneagram:
It isn’t a tool to point out all of your flaws. Quite the opposite. If you allow yourself to examine yourself, the Enneagram can be one of the most liberating instruments in your toolbox.
What the world is lacking is empathy. In order for us to treat others as we would like to be treated, we must first understand how we would like to be treated and why. When we become competent in the motivations behind our behavior, we allow ourselves grace in our shortcomings and hope in our successes. Grace, when bestowed upon ourselves, creates empathy. Empathy, then, produces patience and the willingness to understand others.
There is a certain beauty in our need for grace, because it is through our shortcomings that grace is given and empathy developed; not through our successes.
I believe that self-understanding is the basis for all productive coaching sessions. Whether you seek Life, Relationship or Adoption Coaching, we will spend the first couple of sessions discovering your Enneagram type and discussing how your type relates and responds to your circumstances.
