So what has that looked like for us? Over the years, we’ve found value in the information and insights that we’ve found in multiple different tests, such as Strengthfinders (which helps you identify your natural talents in order to better leverage your best assets for individual and team growth) as well as the DiSC® assessment (which categorizes four ways that humans behave and interact when giving and receiving information). Simply put, Strengthsfinders uncovers WHAT tools you bring to the team, and the DiSC® uncovers HOW you tend to use or express those tools.
What we have found is that all gathered information is important, yet the WHY behind certain perspectives and tendencies is oftentimes a roadblock that can be difficult to overcome with a satisfactory outcome for all concerned parties. In the fall of 2017, we stumbled upon the Enneagram, an ancient personality theory that been a beacon of understanding on all the “WHY’S,” and it has quite literally been transformative for us as individuals, as a team, and as marketers in so many ways.
The Enneagram test divides humanity into 9 basic “types” that are characterized by our core strengths/weaknesses, unconscious needs, primary fears, and default tendencies. These are the WHY’S behind how we think, act and feel.
The beauty that we have found in the Enneagram is that it puts into words what might seem ordinary and intuitive to one person, but is completely foreign to the people around them with whom they are charged to find camaraderie, cooperation and consensus day-in and day-out. It is most definitely a tool for fostering empathy and respect within a team environment as well as providing an unbiased vocabulary for coaching and fostering team growth.
