Enneagram 9s are driven by a need to be settled and in harmony with the world. And this makes them afraid of conflict.
But in avoiding even healthy conflict, 9s often fail to make their own opinions known. They give up long-term growth for a kind of temporary peace.
So, how can a 9 use the anatomy of their Enneagram to make their Yoda wisdom known? What does it look like when an Adaptive Peacemaker uses their divine heart to make an impact in the world?
On this episode of The Leadership Formula, I discuss the Enneagram 9’s gift for understanding multiple perspectives and accepting people for who they are, describing how they make others feel seen, heard and understood.
I explore how a 9 can leverage their wings to make decisions and take action, moving through the discomfort of causing conflict to share their own needs, desires and feelings with others.
Listen in for insight around the leadership potential of the social subtype 9 and learn how the Adaptive Peacemaker can leverage their wisdom and heart to make the world a better place for the long term.
