This week we have two free enneagram classes that you can use to learn the assessment and discover more about yourself, specifically what blind spots you might have at work. Here is a quick and very simple run down of just some of the blind spots I have seen in the various enneagram types:
- Enneagram Type Ones often can’t get their head around how pointing out what’s wrong and trying to get it fixed might not always be received well by others.
- Enneagram Type Twos can make themselves indispensable to others and become so overwhelmed by the demands on their time that they can’t get their own work done.
- Enneagram Type Threes work hard to collect awards, degrees, and promotions, but can wonder why they still feel this strange emptiness despite all they have achieved.
- Enneagram Type Fours can get excited about new and creative ideas but quickly get depressed and demotivated despite their best intentions when work gets boring and mundane.
- Enneagram Type Fives can’t understand why people accuse them of not responding, sharing information or following up – and they often have a hard time networking and mentoring others.
- Enneagram Type Sixes can feel themselves constantly frustrated with management and project leaders as they notice everything that gets overlooked and puts the organization at risk.
- Enneagram Type Sevens don’t often understand why others have to be so negative all the time, and drag out meetings or implementations.
- Enneagram Type Eights can be shocked when they find out that they can be considered bullies when they just blow off steam once in awhile.
- Enneagram Type Nines can get frustrated at the selfishness of the people around them, and exasperated that others can’t seem to see what is important and instead just keep arguing about it.
Here is one of my most popular videos that talks about the journey of each type:
