Listen to me being interviewed on the Enneagram by David Hyner of Stretch Development

For those of you who have heard me talk about the Enneagram, but have not had much exposure to it, this radio interview will be a great resource.  I cover a brief intro to each of the nine types, talk about the difference between the social, sexual and self-preservation instincts and how it can help you bring more awareness to why you do what you do (aka unconscious patterns!)

David Hyner, of Stretch Development, is one of those really nice guys who builds people up, helps them out and has made the focus of his life inspiring others.

He did that for me when we met back in 2004 at an Academy of High Achievers course (thanks Tony Burgess and Julie French!) in the beautiful Hydro Hotel in Peebles, Scotland. That day he talked to our group about the power of the massive goal principle – how you can achieve something monster if you break it down into 100 achievable steps. He’s an accomplished keynoter and he gets you roused and dreaming big.

I was really pleasantly surprised when he got in touch recently to ask me if I would do an interview for him on the Enneagram which is one of my huge passions. Dave is light and humorous, and I think you will enjoy listening in on the time we spent together. We cover a lot of Enneagram material, so this will serve as a great introduction for people who are not familiar with the system and a great piece of revision for those who are.

Thanks David for your time – all the best to you and your associates at Stretch Development.
