#108 Pete Rogers – Enneagram II: You and the deadly sins
Unlike other personality descriptions that label you and leave you high and dry, the Enneagram is a tool full of hope that provides each person with practical steps towards a more balanced life. In part 2 of the Enneagram series with Pete Rogers (you’ll find Part 1 here) learn how movement around the nine personality types gives opportunity for insane self-growth.
Pete is wildly positive (he’s a classic ‘7’ according to the Enneagram…) and was a joy to work with. We sat in my dining room for five awesome hours (my uber-efficient ‘3’ nature needed it done in one fell swoop!) digging into the intricacies of the Enneagram—a transformative personality inventory process. The applications for the Enneagram for individuals and in the workplace are endless, and what I love about this series is Pete shows us how to utilize this tool to be our best (and worst) selves, and gives us strategies to successfully live and work in China (a typical ‘6’ nation). In just the short amount of time I’ve been learning about the Enneagram, I’ve been thrilled with how I can use it in my own life and personal relationships to build compassion, acceptance and empathy. I think you’ll really enjoy it as well!
What the Enneagram is really about is looking at your gifts, using your gifts and understanding them in a new way.
