The Enneagram 9 has a knack for making people feel safe. Known as the Adaptive Peacemaker, 9s are easygoing and inclusive. 

But in an effort to be accommodating and avoid conflict, 9s often struggle with speaking their mind.

So, how can the Enneagram 9 tap into their gifts without denying their own voice? 

Toni Marinucci is the Registered Dietician behind Tips with Toni, a nutrition program dedicated to helping people heal their relationship with food, gain self-confidence and find balance in their eating habits. 

On this episode of The Leadership Formula, Toni and I work through a live typing session, exploring her strengths as an Adaptive Peacemaker and how her childhood role as ‘the quiet sister’ informs the way she shows up as an Enneagram 9.

We discuss how Toni leverages her growth number 3 to set and achieve goals, and I explain how she can lean on her 8 and 1 wings to take decisive action and take a stand for what she believes in.

Listen in to understand why 9s struggle to make their own needs, desires and feelings known and learn what the Adaptive Peacemaker can do to navigate conflict in a way that honors their empathetic heart and empowers the people they love and lead.
