You & the Enneagram Assessment

It all started with a simple question.

What do we each bring to the table and how does this play out in our behavior and team relationships? How do we leverage the individuals in the team and the team as a whole?

The Enneagram assessment, also known as the IEQ9, provides a framework to deeply investigate the ‘why’ behind displayed behaviors or resistance, allowing for breakthrough solutions. The iEQ9 gives insight into what intrinsically motivates different people, what engages them and the risks of disengagement or burnout. It allows for deeper, faster change, customized change journeys and effective, sustainable transformation.

During this interactive presentation, we’ll:

The Thriving Women Symposium

This video, taken at the Thriving Women Symposium, a day-long TED-style event for women entrepreneurs, mentions the Enneagram as a way to discover your Super Powers, starting from minute 3:57.

Other methods I use to help facilitate your team

The CliftonStrengths assessment, also known as the StrengthsFinder, is a practical, effective, and enlivening way to discover your strengths, and put them into practice, so you can shift that dynamic.

You’ve likely heard people say things like, “I’m an ESTJ!” or “I’m an introvert!.” If so, they’re referring to one of the most widely used personality profiling systems around.

Meet your guide

I’m Kris Carey, a master reinvention coach, deeply experienced at helping solo entrepreneurs and tiny business owners revisit the work they do, and how they do it, so they can produce the results they’re after. From working with people over my 20+ year coaching career, as well as personal experience, I know the best place to start is by knowing yourself and what brings you alive, so that all aspects of your life and business are in alignment. 

I have first-hand knowledge of what it’s like to run a business while having a life, and have reinvented myself, my life, and my business multiple times over. While it’s been scary more than once, it’s also been incredibly rewarding and worth the effort.

When I’m not working, I debate Star Trek vs. Star Wars with my dog, Finch, while we listen to Miles Davis’ Kind of Blue for the fourth time on repeat.

I truly believe that reinvention is possible, and look forward to working with you to achieve yours.
