WHO AM I?
What is my potential and what is holding me back?
Why do I seem to self-sabotage my own good intentions so often?
How can I create the changes I dream of in myself and my life?
Around the world, right now, thousands of other people are grappling with these questions. The modern world floods us with confusing and conflicting messages about who we should be, how we should behave and what is important. We are told that we need to keep growing, to become everything that we are capable of becoming, but often our journey takes two steps forward and one step back, and it’s difficult to know whether we’re doing the right thing.
Whether it is adapting your leadership style in the office or working on your relationship with your children, change begins with ourselves.

About the Enneagram
The Enneagram is an ancient model that is widely used in various contexts around the world today. The Enneagram refers to the nine different Enneagram styles, each of which represents a worldview and archetype that resonates with the way people think, feel and act in relation to the world, others and themselves. The Enneagram is much more than a personality profile that offers insight into core personality traits, as it delves deeper into the core motivations, defence mechanisms and fears that often lie in the unconscious layers of our personality.
Cracking the code
The Integrative Enneagram approach gives people an understanding of the subconscious motivations, beliefs, defences and fixed behaviour patterns that lead us to get stuck or frustrated. The report highlights powerful insights about your personality type, shining an illuminating light on both your potential and your challenges
The Integrative Enneagram gives you insight and ways to develop in a range of areas:
- Emotional and psychological factors
- Balance of head, heart and hands
- Relationships and social dynamics
- Interpersonal conflict at work and home
- Self-limiting beliefs and blind spots
- Leadership maturity, impact and effectiveness
- Resistance to change
- Resilience, stress and symptoms of stress
- Career development and transitions
- Communication and influencing skills
By going deeper into these factors, this tool supports you in growing your self-awareness and helps you accelerate growth, enrich your personal relationships and grow into your best self.
Most of the shadows of this life are caused by
standing in one’s own sunshine.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
If your emotional abilities aren’t in hand, if you don’t have self-awareness, if you are not able to manage your distressing emotions, if you can’t have empathy and have effective relationships, then no matter how smart you are, you are not going to get very far
Daniel Goleman, Author and Psychologist

Lean in to life
Do you sometimes feel like each day just flows into the next, that you are just going through the motions or stuck in a rut? Are you struggling with self-confidence, relationships, motivation or happiness? The Enneagram invites us to live life to the fullest – with consciousness, becoming fully present and connected to ourselves, our relationships and our world.
Whether your personal challenge is self-discipline, being less tough on yourself, breaking a procrastination habit, negative thinking, low self-confidence or another personal challenge, the Enneagram offers a fresh perspective and gives you powerful tools to break out of automatic patterns, habits and non-awareness.
By understanding the deepest levels of your strengths, motivations, internal conflicts, anxieties and self-limiting beliefs, our reports assess and reflect personal, social and professional elements to unlock your self-awareness. The information is then presented in a simple, empowering way for you to interpret and apply in your own life.
When you know yourself you are empowered. When you accept yourself, you are invincible.
Tina Lifford, Actress and Inner Fitness Trainer
Balance and grow
Personality is a complex subject and many of us are too hard on ourselves, or become overwhelmed and negative when digging deeper. Our tools are designed to offer a balanced view and we hope to support our users in growing their self-acceptance and compassion.
The iEQ9 takes an awareness and strengths-based approach, highlighting not only problems and risks but also recognising your strengths and virtues. Complexity is broken down into easy-to-understand layers with graphics, visuals and easy-to-read blocks that help you find the information you need most.
Discover the unique and powerful gifts you offer to the world, and learn how to balance and bring out your authentic self.
The one thing that you have that nobody else has is you. Your voice, your mind, your story, your vision.

Support richer relationships
How can we love and respect someone and yet don’t quite understand them
Often we struggle to understand those closest to us – their behaviour, their thinking or their priorities. The reality is that there are lots of different points of view in the world, different things make different people happy and different people are motivated by diverse things. Often conflict or strain arises in relationships when we are trying to communicate or support someone in our preferred way, while what they need is really a completely different approach.
Working with the Enneagram helps you not only understand yourself more clearly, but will also help you understand others better. Just starting to understand those differences and appreciate where others are coming from can already make a big change in relationships.
Enneagram enthusiasts find these tools powerful not only for their own self-development, but also to understand those around them. People who know the Enneagram actively use it in their professional and personal lives, in areas such as:
- Personal growth: understanding yourself, your core beliefs and habits – why you do what you do
- Marriage and intimate relationships: understanding yourself, your spouse/partner and how you relate
- Parenting: understanding your children’s personalities and reactions as well as your own parenting style
- Spirituality: understanding your deepest values and beliefs, and your relationship with a higher power
“The Enneagram has assisted me to understand the motivations behind my own behaviour, as well as my colleagues, friends and family. It is truly insightful and in my opinion the best self-development tool. The IEQ training has equipped me to take this tool into my work practice and enriched the coaching conversations that I have. ” – Marian Scala, Dimension Data Middle East and Africa, Head of Brand and Communications
Too many people undervalue what they are, and overvalue what they’re not.

Through the various layers of the Enneagram (lines, wings, centres of expression, instincts and levels of integration), we are able to provide multiple powerful pathways to development. These suggestions of development paths, tips, strategies and activities for your type offer you a springboard and a starting point to take action.

Start the journey
So where do you start? We make it simple with an online test and automated email delivery of your comprehensive report. This allows you to walk through the steps of personal development, with or without the support of an accredited Integrative coach.
The W3 model (What? So what? Now what?) is a simple, powerful and popular model that reflects the steps of development. In What? we step back and look at ourselves and our world through a different lens or point of view. We then ask what that means for us in So What?, understanding the impact on us and our world to be conscious in our efforts and priorities to change. Now What? takes us into the future, defining action plans to create the changes we seek, and accessing support from others. Our tools offer specific, actionable and powerful support at all three of these levels.
What is the reality? Who am I? What is happening in my life? What are the drivers and motivations for my behaviour patterns? What are my deepest fears, values and self-limiting beliefs?
How our tool supports you
The iEQ9 Enneagram Test offers you a robust, easy-to-read report that outlines core personality traits and type with 95% accuracy, acting as a mirror to help you see yourself more clearly. By measuring and reflecting back personality, stress and strain, instincts and centres of expression, we offer the most complete view of your personality to support your self-awareness.
What does this mean for me? What is the impact on my world, my relationships, and my sense of self? How am I holding myself back? How are my relationships being affected? What do these patterns mean in my world and what do I want to change?
