An Enneagram, which dates back at least 2,000 years, derives from the Greek words “ennea,” or nine, and “gram,” something written or drawn. It refers to nine points on the circumference of a circle that correspond to nine styles you can develop as a leader.

Ones seek a perfect world and work diligently to get there.

Twos want to be liked, to help others and to orchestrate people and events.

Threes arrange their lives to meet specific goals and to succeed in the eyes of the world.

Fours desire deep connections within themselves and with others.

Fives thirst for knowledge.

Sixes are insightful and carefully plan so they will be prepared for any eventuality.

Sevens crave novelty: the stimulation of new ideas, new people and new experiences.

Eights pursue truth. They like control, avoid vulnerability and try to make big things happen.

Nines seek peace and harmony. They avoid conflict, tension and ill will.
