In this episode, Rachel chats with Annie Hanekom, Leadership and Team Facilitator and Coach and Certified Enneagram Practitioner

We chat about the Enneagram – an ancient way of understanding ourselves, our personality and our responses to others. This has been a very powerful way that people have understood themselves and others over hundreds of years which has enjoyed a resurgence recently. We discuss why it can be such a powerful tool for self-awareness and chat about the insights it can bring – on a really deep level. 

Health warning! Remember – the enneagram is a lens of looking at the world. No model is absolutely true but models can be helpful!

We talk about the 9 different enneagram types and how each type may be responding in the Coronavirus crisis. We explore the key areas for development and what the opportunities are now for each type to live life in a fuller and more meaningful way. 

Annie’s top tips to get more self-aware are:

  1. Take the time to notice what your instant reaction to something is...interrogate what’s really going on.
  2. Ask, is this the most useful thing I could do?
  3. Then ask, what’s a better way to respond?
