On Wednesday, May 17, the Y’s Career Planning and Development Services is offering a free Enneagram workshop at the Cooper Koo Family YMCA.
The Enneagram is a powerful psychological system that describes nine distinct personality styles and their very different ways of seeing the world. The Enneagram is about people — how we are the same, how we are different, what makes us tick, and more. It describes personality styles in an uncannily accurate way, detailing our inner motivations and patterns of operating in the world. No personality type is better than another, and each has its own special strengths and advantages, as well as limits and blind spots.
When people are introduced to the Enneagram, they often recognize themselves and their friends with amazing clarity. Discovering your personality type provides insight into how you view the world, the kinds of choices you are likely to make, the motivations that are driving you, how you respond under stress, and more. As your self-awareness increases, you can begin to focus on your strengths, and recognize and relax the patterns that do not bring out your best.
The Enneagram also increases your sensitivity towards others’ ways of thinking, feeling, and acting. As you begin to understand the different types, you will see why you interact easily with some people yet experience challenges with others. You’ll begin to better understand relationships both at home and at work, which can help in avoiding conflicts. Learning about the Enneagram allows you to feel more tolerant and compassionate both to yourself and to others.
Don’t miss your chance to learn all about this useful resource, and how to apply it to your own personal development. Here are the details about our free Enneagram workshop — space is limited, so RSVP today:
