Through discovering and reflecting on our emotions and behaviours, and being aware of others, a process facilitated by the power of the Play of Life®, we become aware of what life could be like with a clean ‘lens’, having a glimpse of our ‘true self’. With this positive aim in mind we can look at thoughts, beliefs and behaviours that have been clouding our lens. We learn about our frailties, disordered attachments, unhelpful behaviours, we call them fragmenting roles, always surrendered by hope. The lens starts being cleaned and new ways of living become available to us.
Using the Enneagram to understand ourselves and others, specifically when under pressure, can help make it a bit easier, to relate to our team leaders, colleagues, stakeholders, and even those in our personal life. To help make it a bit easier, I've put together this Enneagram.rc in a Snapshot table (inspired by Riso & Hudson) with a little bit of information about each type.
