You may have taken the Myers-Brigg personality test at school or work, but did you ever learn about the Enneagram?
In this two-session class, Becky Rodes, M.A., will introduce the Enneagram (pronounced any-a-gram), a learning tool for greater understanding about ourselves that has been used widely in business, education, counseling, corporate skill building and management.
The Enneagram defines nine major personality types and the strengths and limitations of each type. The purpose is not to put people in boxes, but to give them skills to develop beyond their types.
Through the process, students not only gain a better understanding of themselves, but also of others, resulting in better relationships and communication.
The first class will be an overview of the nine personality types and discovery of your own type. This interactive class will feature lively discussions and group activities to help participants explore personality types. Class two will be a more in-depth exploration of the Enneagram, focusing on the three centers (or “triads”) of intelligence. Each of the nine personality types correspond to one of three centers: Body-based intelligence, heart-based intelligence, and head-based intelligence. Again, the instructor will use activities and discussion to discover this interesting facet of the Enneagram.
PLEASE NOTE: Participants must have the book The Essential Enneagram: The Definitive Personality Test and Self-Discovery Guide by David Daniels, M.D. and Virginia Price, Ph.D. The book can be purchased from Amazon for about $9.
Participants will also receive a list of additional resources to continue learning about the Enneagram.
