A Beginner’s Guide to The Enneagram with Steph Barron Hall

Steph Barron Hall


The Enneagram – is it the real deal, or yet another online test with generalised results that can’t be trusted?

That’s what we find out in today’s episode.

For those of you who’re not familiar with the concept, according to Truity.com, The Enneagram is a system of personality typing that describes patterns in how people interpret the world and manage their emotions.

It was recommended by several of the guests as a wonderful tool for cultivating self-awareness and personal growth. So, I decided to give it a try, and learn all I can about this much recommended tool from someone we can trust. I invited Steph Barron Hall onto the show.

During the episode, I shared my concerns around online, self-administered tests along with everything else you need to know to get started with Enneagram.

If you’ve found all other self-awareness tools boring or tedious, this is going to be a game changer for you. Enneagram can be a fun way for you to explore your psyche, and this episode is the perfect first step.
