What is the Enneagram?
The Enneagram is a personality profile that helps people understand themselves better in a number of aspects and situations. Like any other profile it is not meant to stereotype people, rather it aims to give some useful information about them; assisting in bringing clarity to the complex and unique people that we all are.
In doing so the report and supporting feedback process assists in self-awareness, development, building richer relationships, resolving conflicts and optimising team behaviour and performance.
The word is derived from The Greek words for nine (ennea) and points/written or drawn (gram). It refers to the nine different Enneagram styles; each one representing a unique world view and archetype which describes a way in which people may think, act or feel. The nine styles resonate with how people relate to the world around them, the people they interact with and their own inner world.
