Knowledge of the Enneagram frees people from believing that their life stories define who they are. They can let go of the narratives that imprison them and instead can choose to change through different meaning ascribed to their reality of life circumstances and relationships. Awareness of our automatic responses and the emotional “froth” that can cloud our judgment is a powerful tool in understanding motivation and behaviour. With this awareness, people can widen their choices of how they show up to engage more effectively in the workplace and home.

Lee originally studied the Enneagram with Riso and Hudson. Subsequently she studied with Naranjo, Chestnut and Lapid-Bogda. She completed her doctoral thesis on the Enneagram and workplace conflict resolution and published ‘What’s your Tribe’ – the Enneagram at work and play.

She has taught many groups about the Enneagram and favours a narrative or story telling approach. Knowledge of personality type gives people a model of understanding their own behaviour, motivations and insight into their automatic reactions to certain situations and people. Lee is accredited to teach the Enneagram to individuals, couples, teams, and entire organisations.

She is part of the IEQ9 learning faculty and assesses case studies for participants in qualifying as Enneagram Coaching Practitioners.

Knowing that there is a whole ‘tribe’ of people in the world with the same Enneagram type, can be reassuring in forgiving self and others for people’s sometime dysfunctional behaviour. Recognizing personality traits of a type leads to people wanting to know how they can grow and change. Taking personal responsibility for growth is the first step in bringing about sustained change. The second step is asking for support and further knowledge, and it is in this way that Lee can play a vital role in furthering a climate of EQ development, improving productivity and enhancing the wellbeing of systems and organisations.
