25 Sep #102: The Road Back To You with Author Ian Cron by jon vroman in Podcasts no Comments Do you ever wish you had a deeper understanding for who you are? What about a deeper love, compassion, and appreciation for others? It’s easy to fall into that trap of thinking that we know everything there is to know about something—that there’s nothing left to learn about ourselves or the people around us. From a guy who has taken pretty much every personality test you can imagine, I didn’t think there was much more to discover about myself… But I was wrong! Today, I’m joined by Ian Cron, who is here to explain the power of the Enneagram and to talk about his latest book—The Road Back to You: An Enneagram Journey to Self-Discovery. In this conversation, we unpack a unique and wildly awesome tool for personal growth—the Enneagram. Not only did it help me learn more about who I am, but it made a huge difference in my relationship with my wife and my ability to be a great dad. Ready to see the world in a totally different way?
