Emotional Intelligence and the Process of Change for Types 1, 2, and 3

In this episode of the Awareness to Action Enneagram podcast, Mario Sikora, María José Munita and Seth "Creek" Creekmore talk about the process of change with each type, starting with Types One, Two and Three. They provide specific examples on how to apply the ATA process with these specific types. Mario shares how he and co-writer Robert Tallon originally talked about this in their book, “Awareness to Action: The Enneagram, Emotional Intelligence, and Change,” and how things have evolved since then.

Accepting doesn’t mean that you agree with it or that you think that it’s good. You’re just accepting that it happens, and mistakes will happen whether you want it or not.” -María José [13:30]

“You have to make sure you’re taking care of yourself before you can take care of others. And in order to take care of yourself, you have to know what it is you really want and be honest about it.” -Mario [21:52]

“I feel like what you’re not saying is these are the emotions that each type needs to work on.” -Creek [27:03]
