This is a book written by two spiritual authors, but without the heavy dose of religious overtones. Rather, it’s a guide to help you understand yourself and how that awareness will help you better relate to others and build a career and life that aligns with your type.
And if that awareness leads you back to your spiritual path, even better.
Authors Ian Morgan Cron and Suzanne Stabile found a shared love in their work using the Enneagram in helping individuals overcome personal challenges. But they also present this tool as one for opening you up to a more self-compassionate journey which leads to greater success in the workplace and in life.
The book introduces the ‘why’ and ‘how’ of the Enneagram and dedicates a chapter to each type so the reader can become aware of all the characteristics, highs and lows of each. This is coupled with actions steps that encourage a more robust understanding of one’s identity. The most interesting thing about their approach to success is the emphasis on discovering what you don’t want to see in yourself or what you may have ignored for way to long. Confronting this side of your identity is the first step on the road back to you.
