It's Not Who You ARE, It's What You DO

In this episode of the Awareness to Action Enneagram podcast, Mario Sikora, María José Munita and Seth "Creek" Creekmore share the origin story of referring to the Enneagram types as strategies. They discuss the implications and explanations on why Awareness to Action uses that word and the corresponding words associated with it.

“When one strategy doesn’t work, we go to another, and that’s again what I liked about strategy. The Enneagram is set up in such a way that the connecting points have a logic to them.” -Mario [11:35]

“When you understand the logic, it’s a very powerful tool. That’s what truly allows you to put yourself in other people’s shoes.” -María José [17:13]

“I think the Enneagram already fosters compassion to begin with, even in the language of be, but I think your language takes it a step further in that it’s more dynamic and it encapsulates things a little bit more freely.” -Creek [18:15]
