What is the Enneagram?
The word Enneagram comes from the Greek words: ennea (nine) and gram (what is written or drawn).
The Enneagram refers to the nine different Enneagram styles, identified as numbers 1-9. Each number represents a worldview and archetype that resonates with the way in which you apply your thinking, feeling, and action in your interaction with the world.
The Enneagram is a useful guide on your journey toward self-development, relationship building, conflict resolution, and the improvement of team dynamics. It identifies how we engage in relationships and offers ways we can develop healthy ways of relating. There are many diagnostic tools (e.g. MMPI, Meyers/Briggs, DISC).
However, the Enneagram is the most effective tool in showing us our strengths, weaknesses, and motivations behind why we do the things we do.
