The first time I came across the Enneagram, I didn't get it.
My sister had a newfound passion for it and I was almost annoyed by her relentless insistence that I dig in, too.
I couldn’t figure out my type. All the free descriptions online seemed vague and I saw myself in multiples of them.
I found the Enneagram confusing. What’s with all the wings and lines and circles and stuff…?!
And, if we're being honest, the name of it is kind of weird.
Then, one day she sent pictures of pages from Beatrice Chestnut's The Nine Types of Leadership on Type 4.
Something clicked: “Oh my gosh, that's totally me.”
Type four was confirmed when I invested in the Integrative Enneagram iEQ9 report.
Even as a lifelong lover of personality tests, learning about type fours took me by surprise.
The Enneagram report didn't just show me my behavior, it also provided the WHY behind my behavior.
This opened up a deep well of self-knowledge I had yet to fully tap and it painted a clear picture for growth that I didn't even know could exist.
The Enneagram got me unstuck from a career crossroads, helped me heal from burnout, and served as the impetus for starting my business.
All of this is why I want to share it with you.
I believe in the Enneagram's ability to spark positive change so much, I offer this Enneagram Discovery package for anyone who wants to learn and apply its wisdom.
The package will confirm your type, expand your self-awareness for work, life and leadership and help you understand what the heck a “wing” and a “line” is (nothing I can do about the funky name though 🤓).
I'm confident the lessons and tools you derive from it will help you break through barriers to thriving no matter your current work, life or leadership season.
The Enneagram is a powerful emotional intelligence system that details nine unique ways humans are motivated. These core motivations are the lenses through which you see the world. Each lens has a different way of thinking, feeling and doing.
What makes the Enneagram different from other assessment is its emphasis on core motivation, rather than just behavior. If self-intelligence were a tree, the Enneagram educates what is at the roots, not just the branches. What motivates you is the driver of all your behavior.
The Enneagram is also a powerful educator for growth. It meets you where you are at and it will show you five tangible, actionable and authentic ways to grow.
The more you understand yourself, the more you can understand the world and people around you. Improving your relationships, your work, your leadership and your life as a whole.

WHAT CLIENTS ARE SAYING:
"Learning my enneagram was powerful because it allowed me to understand and harness my strengths. I’ve felt empowered in running my business. I am also taking the best care of myself by learning (slowly but surely) how to optimize my schedule.
Without understanding my enneagram number, I think I would still be stuck in my old mindset and not accomplishing a fraction of what I'm doing right now.
By understanding my enneagram number, it was revealed to me that a blessing and curse of being the peacemaker is putting others first. I finally feel that I make decisions that serve me as well. I’m honestly so much happier, fulfilled, and productive."
Learning my enneagram number has been powerful because it helped me navigate my emotions, thoughts and feelings, and served as a catalyst for my personal and professional growth. I can't say enough wonderful words about how coaching with Whitney has transformed my life and opened my heart. It has given me a new found confidence to be the light in the world I am meant to be."
I generally don’t give much weight to career tests or personality tests because they feel limited and two-dimensional. I have been pleasantly surprised at how useful the Enneagram is.
For me, it’s a piece of Whitney’s coaching that helps point out emotional patterns and tendencies. It’s a tool that feels like it grows with me instead of just capturing my mood today (and, as a type 4, my moods change a lot!).
On a Personal Note:
My favorite part of the Enneagram is its uncanny ability to reveal blind spots.
It's not a warm fuzzy assessment. Yes, it will describe your strengths and talents, but it will also provide a very accurate mirror of where it will serve you to improve.
Here's what I know for sure: The Enneagram will get you out of your own way.
While it's helpful to understand behavior, true self-wisdom is found a step deeper: what motivates those behaviors.
The Enneagram experience will be a gift that keeps on giving. I look forward to sharing it with you!
