Slide 5: 

Enneagram Credibility

Enneagram was discovered in its initial form from 2,500 years ago, during Egyptian times.

It has been consolidated and certified of its validity by 3 Organisation Psychology academics and now widely used in Fortune 500 Companies

Slide 6: 

Uniqueness of Enneagram

Bring out Enneagram focuses on the “why” rather than just the “what”

Many may comment that Enneagram limits people and boxes them up into 9 types of people

Enneagram actually frees people from boxes

The other well-used models like MBTI, DISC and horoscopes are beneficial but they only look at what people do

Enneagram is the only one that focuses on the “WHY” – inborn motives and teaches you how to transform, based on your own motives

These are CEOs who have done the same assessments, proven to be at healthy emotional levels and lived out their mindPower™.

Slide 15: 

Explain why there are several types with high/similar scores in the report

Everyone has only 1 core inborn fear & desire but as we move on in life, we will learn behaviours that makes us seem not like our core type

Example: Twins tend to be given the same treatment, resources and upbringing, but we can commonly observe that many of them show very

 different personalities and reactions as they grow up. This shows the difference in their core inborn motive.
