040: The Intersection of Strengths and the Enneagram – A Great Conversation with Chris Heinz [Enneagram in Your REALWORK]

"For a while, I looked at Strengths and got along just fine–but now that I'm learning from the Enneagram, I wouldn't want to go without either of them." –Chris Heinz, @enneagramandstrengths

No matter what personality profile you're most familiar or comfortable with, there is often something useful in exploring other tools and opportunities. After years of working as a Gallup Certified Strengths Coach, Chris Heinz encountered the Enneagram.

While he still values and teaches Strengths, he is now also certified with the ©iEnneagram Motions of the Soul and it's what he's found at the intersection of the two tools that have been enlightening and really deepened his whole-self wisdom! 

On this Enneagram in Your REALWORK episode, Chris shares about:

  • Connections and Value of both Strengths and the Enneagram
  • Making the Choice to Engage as a Type 9
  • A Celebrity Encounter that turned into a Hero Dad Moment as he leaned into his 3-6-9 Harmony
  • Using the Language of the Enneagram in Marriage and Family
  • His discovery at the Intersection of Strengths and the Enneagram
