Product Description

Product Description

Successful, busy pragmatists like concise useful books. This is one of those.

The Enneagram is a complex system of nine personality types.

"What's My Type ?" Explains:

How each type is generally described in the literature
The contribution that your type makes in a work context
The relationship your type has with others in a team
How to work most effectively with each of the nine types
How to successfully present ideas to each type
The kind of leader you might naturally be, given your type

This book will help you answer these questions....

Why doesn't s/he just see things the way I do?
Why do I sometimes feel like I am talking to someone in a foreign language and they're just not getting it?
Why do I keep repeating the same pattern of behaviour , even though I know those patterns don't help?
Why do I say those things without thinking?

Here's what Dr.Robert Holden, author of Loveability, published by Hay House says about the book ..

"The Enneagram is the most powerful aid I know for releasing inner blocks
to success and happiness. Marie and Jenny have created a user-friendly
primer that is inventive and insightful. I wholeheartedly recommend their
work to you."
Robert Holden Ph.D. author of Authentic Success and Shift Happens!

Marie Taylor and Jenny Williams have condensed their many hours of study and understanding of human behaviour to create a simple guide to the nine Enneagram types. Both are experienced coaches and facilitators of learning and insight.

5.0 out of 5 stars Makes Sense - and it's Fun! 21 Mar. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I love the concise nature of this book for its ability to take complex underlying concepts and make them easy to grasp. The quotes from famous people of each type and the soundtrack note for each type made me smile - because they're so true. Whether you take this book on a serious business level to make yourself a better team member or leader, or whether you use it a fun way to literally 'type' your family and friends there's excellent value to be had from its content.

5.0 out of 5 stars Now I know :-) 19 Mar. 2013
By Rachel
Format:Kindle Edition
Great, well written book that has helped me identify not just my type but those around me. Really easy to understand & apply to the real world. Means I can now work on managing situations differently to get the best out of people. Hugely beneficial when bringing together teams of people together. Doesn't stop there though, friends & relatives have also been seen in a new light. This element has been entertaining as well as enlightening.

5.0 out of 5 stars Little book with a big punch 25 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a great little book. I came across it through a recommendation from a friend. I had read a number of books previously about personality types and although I thought they were interesting, I found it difficult to take in the big picture and had been left with a feeling of 'so what? but this book is different. Its very well written, using clear and accessible language. It quickly gets to the heart of the matter, concisely describing each of nine personality types. The authors help here with plenty of examples and some great quotes. Part of the pleasure is trying to work out which of your friends fits into each category. I found myself thinking about this book long after I finished it. I could see its potential for improving communication but the best thing is that it made me think about myself and, you know, I felt I'd grown up just a little bit. I couldn't recommend it highly enough

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome little book and great resource! 6 April 2013
By Mareo
Format:Kindle Edition
This book is a very concise compilation of a lot of material regarding the Enneagram personality types. I've found the Enneagram the very best personality sorter out there and have found using it very helpful, but there is a LOT to read and go through. THANK YOU for writing a book that breaks it down into an easy to read and understand form. I find this book invaluable as a quick resource for understanding myself and others without wading through a myriad of pages regarding what I'm looking for.

I would highly recommend this book for anyone who is looking to understand more about themselves and others. If you are a coach, leader, human resource director, trainer, or entrepreneur, doubly so. Not a lot of money for a wealth of information at your finger tips.

And if you know nothing about the Enneagram? Dip your toes in here. You'll be glad you did.

A very well written summation of the Enneagram. A great read, delightfully brought to life with examples of different types in the form of celebrities. A very useful guide.

This gem is great for coaches who want to understand and work with the enneagram as well as understand themselves and their clients better. It is also an excellent resource for executive coaches who work in organisations with teams or at board level. This book shows us why people can work well together, or indeed points out why they may not.....given their separate realities and expectations. Very useful typology for real life, people 'get' themselves and they can see how the relate with others when types are identified and explained within the spectrum of the Enneagram. This is a beautifully crafted book, one you will use and refer to again and again.

A very wise reading, this book is simple and straightforward. To the contrary of several personality type models I found I could easily identify myself and find development opportunities within 1h as well as tips to manage others.
