The enneagram is a psychological model which works based on the assumption that tere are nine different core motivations in people and that each of us is controlled by one of these nine motivaitons. We all call that the nine styles or types.
We're talking about deep emotional needs and not choices. Depending on which Enneagram style you have, there's a tendency that you'll approach your everyday life from a certain approach or pattern. This pattern may benefit your or work against your depending on what you're trying to achieve.
Since coaching has the most profound effect if we work in the deep emotional layers, knowing your Enneagram style can be very helpful. This is why it's quite normal if I ask you to do an Enneagram test before our actual work begins. Now, whether it's a correct assessment or not will be determined in a conversation we'll be having. We're complex beings after all.
Der er altså tale om dybe følelsesmæssige behov og ikke valg. Helt overordnet så er det sådan, at alt afhængig af hvilken type man er, så er der en tendens til, at man går til sin hverdag eller arbejde ud fra en vis tilgang eller mønster. Denne kan så gavne eller modarbejde i forhold til at nå de mål, man ønsker.
