Think Young Life Committees are perfect, harmonious spaces all the time? Think again! Our committees are full of broken, sinful, and very DIFFERENT people. We can disagree, get frustrated, and just plain miscommunicate on a regular basis. That’s why tools like the Enneagram can help so immensely in understanding each other.
The Enneagram is an ancient personality type system providing amazing insight into how humans are wired. As with any personality system, it’s meant to be a tool to help you understand your own strengths and weaknesses better. It’s also a great tool to understand others and how they operate. When we look at committee dynamics, understanding how someone approaches the world and why they might react can help us truly love and respect each other.
In The Road Back to You Ian Morgan Cron and Suzanne Stabile forge a unique approach—a practical, comprehensive way of accessing Enneagram wisdom and exploring its connections with Christian spirituality for a deeper knowledge of ourselves, compassion for others, and love for God. Take a listen to Ian’s overview of the Enneagram and how we can start to incorporate it into our daily lives.
