#464: What Your Enneagram Results Really Mean About You As An Entrepreneur With Ian Morgan Cron

May 26, 2022

Listen on…

How you use your strengths and weaknesses to your advantage

An Enneagram is much more than just a funny word. 

It’s a system of personality typing that identifies nine types of people and how they relate to one another and the world. It’s not just a powerful tool for personal growth, but also a great resource for transforming relationships in your personal and professional lives.

You’ve probably heard me talk about Enneagrams on this podcast before because I love this tool SO MUCH. Understanding my own personality — including my strengths and weaknesses — as well as how I relate to others has helped me enormously in my business, from hiring the right people to improving my leadership skills. 

That’s why I’m so excited to have Ian Morgan Cron on the show. He’s the real deal when it comes to Enneagrams and a pioneer in the modern Enneagram movement. In this eye-opening episode, we discuss: 

  • What the Enneagram is and how you can use it to transform your life 
  • The nine different Enneagram personalities
  • How to utilize your strengths as a leader based on your personality type
  • What your Enneagram results tell you about how to set up and run your business
  • If your Enneagram results indicate if you’ll be successful as an entrepreneur 

I promise you that this conversation will leave you with a much better understanding of yourself as a leader, and ways that you can hone in on your specific strengths to build a stronger business.

Here’s a glance at this episode…

  • [06:34] The Enneagram is an ancient personality type system that teaches nine basic personality styles. We gravitate towards one of these.
  • [08:29] This typing system came into Ian's life when he was on a retreat during graduate school. It helps us understand the inner terrain of the people we work with and love. It also shows what's worst and best about you.
  • [10:05] What gives the Enneagram a step up from the other typing quizzes is that it shows you what you need to work on. 
  • [11:57] The key predictor of success among leaders is self-awareness, and the Enneagram is one of the most powerful tools for developing self-awareness. 
  • [22:32] Everybody has all nine types, it's just that we are more of one type than the others. There's only one where we really feel at home.
  • [24:52] Self-awareness is the key predictor of success. Knowing yourself and the people you work with is mission-critical. 
  • [33:58] The Enneagram helps people cultivate self-knowledge which creates self-awareness. It can also increase empathy for others, and reduce conflict.
  • [39:09] The Story of You: An Enneagram Journey to Becoming Your True Self ​ is about rewriting your story as an adult story.
