We’re excited for our Winter Foundation Seminar series on January 9th and 16th! The topic for this year’s seminar is Enneagram Types. We’ll be looking at how the Enneagram system works and you’ll have a chance to learn what your Enneagram type is and how it affects your relationships with others.
The seminar will be held on two Wednesday evenings in January, the 9th and the 16th, from 6:00pm – 8:00pm at the Sandler Center in Town Center. We’ll also have a children’s program to make it easier for families to attend. Children’s check-in is at 5:45pm. Dinner will not be provided, however, we will have light snacks and refreshments for you to enjoy before we get started.
For the two sessions of our seminar, we’ve asked our Community Groups to make this their weekly priority and hold off on weekly Community Group gatherings until after the seminar. This should free everyone up to come spend an evening with us as a church body to learn more about ourselves and how we interact with each other.
enneagraminstitute.com/orders/ create – Click on the link for the RHETI. This assessment from the Enneagram Institute costs $12 and is slightly better than the free option below. It will give you your top 3 scores and descriptions and put some responsibility on you to “own” your type.
details – This assessment is a really good free assessment. If things are tight right now it is a very good option as it generates a very helpful report.
The Enneagram is more than a behavioral assessment (like MBTI or DiSC). It also measures motivation and drive. So not only does it tell you what you do and how you do it, but it also tells you why. This awareness of motivation (healthy and unhealthy) can be helpful for personal discipleship, self-leadership, and interpersonal relationship dynamics.
As you take the assessment, consider your actions, thoughts, and feelings over time, rather than merely answering what is true in the present, unless a question specifically prompts you about a current situation. Also remember there are no right or wrong answers. The important thing is to be honest with yourself and answer the questions based on who you are not who you want to be or who you think others want you to be. Don’t overthink the questions; often the first response is the one that is most accurate.
After your receive your report please read through it carefully and highlight those statements that you believe to be most true about yourself. Then with a different color highlight or underline those statements that you question or give you pause. To help you with this, keep the following questions in mind:
What resonates most with me? What do I already know about myself that is confirmed in the report?
What is this report telling me that I might not be fully aware of or comfortable with yet?
