Personality in Practice: Experiencing the Enneagram as a Chaplain Power Tool

On October 4, 2012, the North Carolina Chaplains Association is returning to the Caraway Conference Center to offer its annual Fall Education Day. This year’s gathering is designed to be interactive and dynamic. Wanda Burton-Crutchfield, the NCCA Institutional Consultant, will guide the group in a day’s work with the Enneagram, a personality test created and refined by Don Riso and Russ Hudson. The title for the day is Personality in Practice: Experiencing the Enneagram as a Chaplain Power Tool. Participants will be offered an overview of the Enneagram and the Nine Personality Types that make up this tool. Then the group will engage case studies that invite them to use the Enneagram as an effective tool in the practice of chaplaincy.

In her work as a Corporate Chaplain, Wanda’s primary work is with employees. She is a chaplain to hospice chaplains, helping them process life, work, and end-of-life care. She also works as a life coach of sorts with administrators in Healthcare centers, Hospice offices, Home care offices, Rehab departments, and Pharmacy services. Wanda’s work also invites her to engage the corporate structure and the individuals and groups that are its human engine. The Enneagram has been instrumental in this work. Understanding personality types equips Chaplain Burton-Crutchfield in her work with individuals, with families, and with the teams she encounters every day. We will be invited to do similar work as we experience a personality laboratory at the Fall Education Day. All attendees will receive 4.5 CEU Credits.

Some homework on the part of participants will deepen the experience. Chaplains planning to attend are encouraged to find out their own Enneagram type. Wanda recommends the following website, www.enneagraminstitute.com, where both free and low-cost ($10) testing is offered. Enneagram testing apps are also available for most smartphones.
