What impact does your personality have on your leadership? How can learning about your inner motivations impact your outward leadership? And what does knowing your Enneagram type have to do with creating and sustaining healthy relationships?
In the third episode in the Healthy Relationships series, I chat with Beth McCord, founder of Your Enneagram Coach. Beth is a wife, mom of two college-aged children, and leader of her own business. She gives us a brief overview of the Enneagram, a quick description of each of its nine types, and insight into how knowing about our personality and those of others impacts how we lead and relate to to those around us.

Beth likes to think of the Enneagram with its nine personality types as our internal GPS. This tool helps you know why you think, feel, and behave in particular ways. The Enneagram cares not so much about what you do, but why you do it.
The 9 Types are:
TYPE 1 - The Moral Perfectionist
TYPE 2 - The Supportive Advisor
TYPE 3 - The Successful Achiever
TYPE 4 - The Romantic Individualist
TYPE 5 - The Investigative Thinker
TYPE 6 - The Loyal Guardian
TYPE 7 - The Entertaining Optimist
TYPE 8 - The Protective Challenger
TYPE 9 - The Peaceful Mediator
The Enneagram is not the transformation; it is just a tool to illuminate what is happening. Christ and the gospel is going to bring us the transformation.
The Enneagram can be useful to grow personally, but also in our marriage, parenting, and team relationships.
