    On this week’s episode, meet the amazing Karl Hebenstreit - he’s not just any coach – he's an Enneagram guru, and multi-book author, here to enlighten us on how this magical personality tool can rock your professional world. Karl is passionate about sharing how to blend this ancient mystique with modern-day practicality. In his book, The How and Why, Taking Care of Business with the Enneagram, he demonstrates the many ways to apply this tool in business.

    You are treated to valuable insights into the Enneagram's origins, its ancient and mystic roots, and its potential for building emotional intelligence.
    Karl also wrote: Nina & The Really, Really Tough Decision.
    It is wonderful introduction to the Enneagram through the lens of a decision-making (for children and adults alike). This book has been translated into many languages already – and I mention it because it all starts with children, understanding, accepting and celebrating the diverse super powers they each possess.
    In this episode, you’ll learn:
    Enneagram and its applications in business and personal developmentEnneagram personality types and their characteristicsHow each person has a primary or natural way of interacting with the worldThe importance of understanding personality types in a business environmentThe origins of the Enneagram
