Questions and Further Resources

The Enneagram is a personality profile system consisting of nine personality styles. It comes from ennea meaning "nine" and gram meaning "figure or point." Although its roots are said to go back to the fourth century AD, today it is experiencing a resurgence in popularity. The Enneagram is being used in the business, educational, psychological, self-development, and religious sectors.

At the heart, the Enneagram reveals the nine core motivational drives of human beings. It can also be used to understand emotions, conflict, communication, leadership, childhood wounds, behaviors, teamwork, workplace roles, faith, and more. The aim of working with the Enneagram is transformation into whole-person health, success, and service.

Taking a paid assessment based on motivation, not behavior, is a good way to get started, but should be complemented by further discovery through a coaching process.

In General, Strengths are "activities that produce positive outcomes." They are abilities and competencies that produce positive results. There are many personality systems and assessments that measure different kinds of strengths such as: CliftonStrengths® / StrengthsFinder®, RightPath, StandOut, DISC, MBTI, VIA Character Strengths, and more.

The idea is to identify your innate talents, aim them toward your outcomes, and turn them into strengths. Not every talent or trait you identify as true for you will be producing positive outcomes.

An assessment can help you find your talents, but the process of transformation includes turning them into strengths, which may involve a coaching process.

Enneagram and Strengths are helpful separately, but they're even more powerful together. That's because the Enneagram reveals drive, while Strengths reveal talent. With this combination, you have the WHY (drive) and the HOW (talent). The drive is WHY you do what you do, while the talent is HOW you do it.

When practitoners of either Strengths or Enneagram have found the other, they have said it was like finding the missing piece because you can know HOW you go about life, but until you know WHY you do, you're not seeing clearly. Or you can know WHY you do certain things, but not HOW you can do them more effectively or efficiently.

Bringing Enneagram and Strengths creates powerful self-awareness and means for whole-person health, service, and success.
