Since officially starting Enneagram coaching work in December, I’ve been asked for resource recommendations about how the Enneagram can help with relationships. It’s taken a while but I’ve found one that’s good: Suzanne Stabile’s The Path Between Us.
With The Path Between Us, she writes specifically about how to interact with the nine types, what’s helpful, what’s unhelpful, and what you can and can’t expect from others based on your Enneagram type. With this explanation come descriptions of each type, highlighting their strengths and weaknesses.
Stabile keeps the book to the narrow scope of interaction between types, which can be very useful if you’re just getting into the Enneagram or have a tricky relationship you’re looking to navigate with more compassion. There’s no discussion of wings, accessing your stress and stability points, instincts, or stances since those are a bit too detailed for an introductory, purposefully relational Enneagram book.
Overall The Path Between Us is a great starting point for navigating relationships and bringing more compassion to yourself and others.
Stay curious friends!
P.S. If you’re looking to discover your Enneagram type, shoot us an email. We’ve got one appointment available each day on February 8, 10, 17, and 22.
