About the enneagram: The enneagram is an ancient spiritual tool that identifies nine basic personality types and how these personality types are expressed in our own lives and in our relationships with others. The enneagram helps us take an authentic look at our lives and our calling; it leads us to discernment, our struggle with sin, our ‘false self’ and the encounter with our true self in God.
The enneagram and YOU: Self-understanding is the first step in the process of identifying how one is uniquely designed to make a difference in the world. The enneagram is a powerful tool for understanding motivations behind behaviors and personality. Implementing this spiritual tool will assist students in their journeys to identify work that is meaningful and vocations that are suited to their values and motivations. Identification of a student’s enneagram number early on in her academic journey will assist her in interpersonal relationships during college as well. Beyond Judson, self-understanding will help alumnae in the work force navigate personal and professional relationships more successfully. Faculty and staff are also encouraged to attend because the enneagram is an invaluable tool for building strong teams.
