|The most thorough and up-to-date career
book on the market was published this year by
HarperCollins. It’s The Career Within You by
two Enneagram experts, Elizabeth Wagele and
Ingrid Stabb. While other career books often
put “Getting to know yourself ” way down on
the list, Wagele and Stabb consider self-knowledge to come first.
Among many other innovations, they have isolated five primary
Enneagram career strengths for each type and invented a test
engineered to coax your career preference from the truest part
of yourself. You will see just how their “Wagele-Stabb Career
Finder” works by doing it yourself. The results have proven to
be extremely helpful to those who’ve experienced the process.
Even if you are satisfied with your career, you can benefit from
this workshop. Besides finding out something you may not have
known about yourself, this workshop will provide tools for:
• coaching professionals and counselors working with clients
on career management issues, and
• individuals evaluating their current careers or potential new
or second careers.
Nothing will be repeated from their 2009 presentation.
Elizabeth Wagele, whose books include The Enneagram Made
Easy, Are You My Type, Am I Yours? The Happy Introvert,
The Enneagram of Parenting, and Finding the Birthday
Cake, is known for her type expertise and to-the-point writing
