Understanding yourself is a key to unlocking your potential and being more influential. Self awareness also raises your Emotional Intelligence (“EI”) which is the greatest predictor of success in life. There are a variety of available tools to facilitate self development, such as MBTI (Myers Briggs Type Indicator), DISC, and Enneagram.  Although I am certified in these multiple systems, I now exclusively utilize the Enneagram since it provides a more wholistic and systemic understanding of who you are and how to self manage for sustainable success.

Although one-to-one assessment is ideal, the link(s) above will take you to the organizations that provides an online assessment tools. No tool is perfect. The ones listed above have higher recognition for statistical validation. The ultimate decision is up to you regarding your type and/or working with a coach to explore your possibilities. The journey of self-discovery is the path to greater EI.

According to the Consortium for Research on Emotional Intelligence in Organizations, a person with emotional intelligence (EQ) possesses both personal competence and social competence. Social competence – that is, social awareness and skills-depends on an individual’s personal competence. Personal competence begins with self-awareness – emotional awareness, accurate self assessment, and self-confidence – and then expands to include self-regulation and self-motivation.

The most accurate and useful system available to help develop both personal and social competence is the Enneagram, which is why companies all over the world – Hewlett Packard, Sony, and Disney – are embracing it, and the CIA uses it to predict the behavior of foreign leaders. To use the Enneagram, a person must first accurately identify his or her own Enneagram style from among the nine unique personality styles identified by numbers One through Nine.(1)
