Hello everyone! I've been delving into the Enneagram theory and have found it quite enlightening. Now I'm intrigued about how it might relate to our careers and work situations. I wonder if certain types are drawn to specific professions or if there are ways to improve the workspace based on your type. Or perhaps your type influences how you tackle tasks or solve problems at work? If you have any experiences or insights on how the Enneagram has shaped or influenced your professional life, I would love to hear from you. Do you think that understanding your Enneagram type can help in making career decisions, or in navigating the challenges of the workplace? 🤔💼🖥️ Thanks in advance!
