Discover the Power of the Enneagram

Have you ever wondered why you react the way you do to certain situations or why some tasks feel more fulfilling than others?
The Enneagram is not just another personality typing tool, it’s a framework for unlocking deeper levels of self-awareness and personal growth. In this journey, you’ll explore how the Enneagram can guide you to focus on a clearer vision for your life and the critical steps required to make desired changes.

What is the Enneagram?

At its core, the Enneagram is a dynamic system that outlines nine distinct personality types, each with its unique perspective on the world.

Press The Start Button

As we enter the new year, many focus on starting fresh, making positive changes, and seizing new opportunities.
If you are like me, perhaps you’ve set goals, selected a word for the year, and have been reflecting on setting intentions for the year ahead. Perhaps you’ve had an amazing 2023 and you’ve never been more energized about creating what comes next.

An Invitation to Create

The responses I receive are as diverse as the individuals I speak with. For some, it’s about charting the next phase of their careers, mapping out a trajectory that aligns with their passion and skills. Others describe in vivid detail their visions for achieving a harmonious balance between work and personal life. Exploring not only what it would look and feel like but also diving into explaining why achieving this balance is so important to them.For many, this question sparks reflections on legacy — the impact they wish to leave behind, the lives they aim to touch, and the positive changes they desire to create in their communities or industries. And then there are those who dream of experiences — immersive travels, learning new skills, or simply creating cherished memories with loved ones.

Growing into 2023

I have a challenge for you this week. I want you to reach out to ten people in your network you have not connected with in quite some time just to say hi, see how they’re doing, or ask what they have been up to.I bet that once you get started, you won’t just stop this week. Instead, you’ll probably go on to challenge yourself to connect with ten people a week for ten weeks.You’ll probably also drop me a note to say thanks.

Year For Growth

If you are knee-deep in your annual planning and budgeting process, you’ll know this is the time of year when businesses and individuals focus on growth in the year ahead. If your goal is growth, there are many shiny objects out there competing for resources and your attention. As a leader, you will need to prioritize the things that will actually move the needle in the right direction. After a tumultuous few years, we’ve all had to look at priorities a little differently. Last year my goals for 2022 were to get out of the house, travel more, capture images with my camera, and sit in Madison Square Garden again to watch and listen to Billy Joel.

Permission Slip

When I was in elementary school, there was no more exciting of a day than when I brought home a permission slip for a field trip for my mom or dad to sign.It meant time away from the classroom and the opportunity to visit the Bronx Zoo, Mystic Seaport, Sturbridge Village, The Statue of Liberty, The Museum of Natural History, or the planetarium at the Stamford Museum and Nature Center.When I think about it now, these signatures on a slip of paper represented the opportunity to pause from day-to-day, take a break, explore, and learn something new—permission to unlock my growth mindset and explore my curiosity.As I thought more about it, I introduced the idea of permission slips into discussions with my clients.
