Experiencing who you are at the core enables your personal and professional contributions to deepen and expand.
My philosophy is that the self is the foundation for the business. The Enneagram is a powerful tool for self-awareness and personal development that helps you to understand your gifts and challenges so that you can access your deepest potential. What distinguishes it from many other personality tools is that it explicitly contains a developmental path that shows you what is possible when you move in the direction of your core nature, and how to recognize habitual beliefs, feelings, and actions that are standing in the way of your contribution.
- The Body Center, located in the belly
- The Feeling Center, located in the heart
- The Thinking Center, located in the head
The process of building ground in our bodies, articulating what truly matters to us in our hearts, and connecting to others allows us to add the wisdom of the belly and the heart to the concepts that we develop in our minds. This is how our concepts become contributions.
I am a certified Enneagram teacher, and I’ve been using the Enneagram in my coaching practice since 2003. Even after more than a decade of experience with this approach, I am still struck by its richness and accuracy. I continue to deepen my learning through my studies with Russ Hudson of the Enneagram Institute and Jessica Dibb of Inspiration Community.
In 2018, I embarked on a start-up with John Luckovich to bring new Enneagram insights into the world. If you’re interested in learning that’s on the cutting edge of what the Enneagram can offer you, check out what we’re up to at New York Enneagram.
