The Enneagram as a tool for Getting to Know Yourself

In episode 64 of Fresh Tracks I speak with Beatrice Chestnut of The Chestnut Group about the Enneagram. The Enneagram is an ancient tool that shows where your focus of attention goes. When used correctly, the Enneagram can be used to get to know yourself, allowing you to create Fresh Tracks from a place of strength. Beatrice shares that understanding the habitual patterns of your personality and where your attention goes can be essential to your personal growth and development. Your focus of attention is often a coping strategy and understanding where it goes, as well as what you avoid focusing on, will help you become a better leader of yourself.

Getting to know aspects of yourself that you can’t see is important to understanding where you are now in life. Can you identify what have you been doing that works and what have you been doing that isn’t working? The Enneagram helps in identifying what motivates you and highlights your blind spots. It can also assist in identifying tools you might add to your toolkit to more easily accomplish your goals.

Show Notes:

3:40 – What is the Enneagram and why is it a powerful tool?
7:30 – How to use the Enneagram to understand what gets between you and a better life.

16:30 – Understand the role emotional intelligence plays in achieving success (EQ).
22:00 – Examples of how the Enneagram can help you work through obstacles.
27:00 – What it means to be a leader and how we get stuck in unsupportive habits because we don’t recognize what’s blocking us.

Beatrice Chestnut, PhD MA is a licensed psychotherapist, coach, and business consultant based in San Francisco. She has a PhD in communication studies and an MA in clinical psychology and is founder of The Chestnut Group, which offers coaching, leadership development training, and team development services to empower change through the use of the Enneagram.

Sources of Power: How People Make Decisions

In episode 63 I speak with Dr. Gary Klein, founder of the Naturalist Decision Making movement. Gary discusses how we really make decisions and why the traditional, rational decision-making process that is taught in school is ineffective. Real decision-making is done on a subconscious level and is called naturalistic decision making. In this week’s show we discuss why experts make rapid decisions and how patterns play a role in the decision-making process. Struggling to make decisions while cutting Fresh Tracks? How to make and trust your decisions when you are doing something new as well as being open to see what you can be achieving instead of what you are not is covered.

There are, in fact, two types of mindsets; fixed mindset and a growth mindset. Which one you favor most effects your ability to cut Fresh Tracks. Struggling to make a decision?
