The Enneagram

The star-shaped Enneagram (Ennea is Greek for "nine" and gram for type) is an amazingly accurate system of understanding personality that groups human motivations and patterns of feeling, thought and body experience into nine personality types. Each of us has elements of all nine types, but one is more dominant and automatic and is a stronger perceptual lens. This lens flavors how you see the world uniquely and therefore, to a large degree, how you think, feel, and act automatically. Being in a type is a great strength and gift but also has limits the range of possible ways to experience life.

Herb uses his expertise in the Enneagram to define your core type and explore how it limits your perception and ability to see the world in the strengths of all nine types. Herb can teach you to see the limited reality in your core filter or type and expand to a greater understanding of options that each type provides.

Using the Enneagram will result in:

  • Personal development and improved self-esteem
  • Enhanced communication skills
  • Self acceptance and self confidence
  • Conflict-resolution
  • Improved relationships
  • Increased empathy with more acceptance of personality differences
  • Clarity in understanding one's self and others
  • Utilization of strengths of all nine types
