Exploring the Enneagram: A Tool to Understanding Yourself and Others
Steve Jeffrey, ForgeWorks and Scott Miller, Garden Spot Communities
The Enneagram is both an ancient (some trace it back to the Desert Fathers) and a new tool (it has risen in use and popularity over the past 20 years and within the past 3 years more specifically) for personal and collective transformation. Stemming from the Greek words ennea (nine) and grammos (a written symbol), the nine-pointed Enneagram symbol represents nine different styles for relating to the self, others and the world. Each Enneagram type has a different pattern of thinking, feeling and acting that arises from a deeper inner motivation or worldview. Additionally, we will move to a different style when we are under stress or relaxed. Learning about these patterns and styles fosters greater understanding of ourselves and others and exposes the relational gunk with causes conflicts, mistrust and miscommunication. We believe that Enneagram processing and understanding provides a unique framework to understand interpersonal relationships, help teams to function at higher levels and represents a unique way for you to grow in your life and ministry. For all these reasons, we are so excited to have the team from ForgeWorks (theforgeworks.org) share the Enneagram at this conference.
