What’s the approach that Chris uses for self-development?
The Enneagram – a rich map to self-understanding and personal growth
Voice Dialogue – an experiential process for self awareness
The Enneagram describes human behavioural functions using the following references:
- 3 centres of intelligence – the head, heart and body (thinking, feeling and instincts)
- 9 primary interconnecting personality types which shape different perspectives of reality
- 3 variations of each personality type based on whether a person has a predominant drive toward self-preservation, social interaction, or one-to-one bonding
Chris applies his in-depth knowledge of the proven Enneagram personality system, and with his guidance, you can explore the key question: “Who am I, and what drives my choices and actions?”
You have the opportunity to discover your personality type by completing a comprehensive Enneagram Questionnaire, or if you already know your personality type, you can explore the experience of your personality type in more depth.
Chris will work through your report to discuss and identify areas that you wish to explore further.
Voice Dialogue is an experiential technique, which explores the multitude of sub-personalities, operating within us and shaping our thoughts, actions, feelings and relationships with others
Chris applies the Voice Dialogue Technique to illuminate the function of the sub-personalities typical of each personality type (such as the Inner Critic) to understand their motivations and how they influence our choices. This technique can be used with any personality system.
You will find this approach:
- Builds self-awareness and confidence
- Uncovers subconscious blind spots that sabotage success and happiness
- Enables empowering choices
- Increases compassion for yourself and others
- Inspires a creative process
- Enables you to live and work more authentically
Whether it is professional, personal or social development, Means to Thrive has the primary goal of helping you increase your self-awareness so you can more freely access your full potential.
