Inside this Book – Ugh, I thought. Another touchy-feely personality activity. I was on a retreat at the Canyon Ranch resort in Miami with fellow forum members from the Entrepreneurs’ Organization, a global network of CEOs that includes some of my best friends in the world. Normally, I’d be having the time of my life at such a retreat, but for me, a Type A personality who’s always on the move and never likes to stop, at this time in this particular location I was struggling to stay engaged. Relax is not a word I’d ever liked, and after two rounds of yoga and meditation, the last thing I wanted to do was sit through four hours of a personality assessment I had never heard of. But I braced myself and forced myself to keep an open mind and a positive attitude about the experience. I’m glad I did, because the four hours that followed changed my life and the way I communicate with others and understand myself forever. “This is the Enneagram,” our psychologist instructor, Brad Kerschensteiner, informed the eight of us. “While much less famous than the Myers-Briggs or DISC assessment, it’s actually far more reliable than those two or any other personality assessment for that matter, and its wisdom has been used and passed on over centuries.” Now I was intrigued and paying attention. Over the four hours that followed, I picked up a wealth of information about myself and how people can best communicate with me. Moreover, I learned about the nine major motivators for people and how we can best communicate with all people on the basis of their Enneagram types, 1 through 9. As Brad assessed all eight of us and talked to us about our Enneagram types and the communication implications for each one, I was blown away by how accurate it all was. It was like he was reading my mind!
Inside this book –The Art of People PDF Book by Dave Kerpen – Frustrated, annoyed, and nearly ready to give up. That was how I felt as I wandered around during the happy hour at the end of the Founders start-up event. I had attended in part to learn, and I had indeed learned a lot at the sessions all day. But my primary reason had been to meet people, including potential investors in my start- up. In that objective I had come up short. There were dozens of investors in the room, but their time had been hoarded by other start-ups, and the one I managed to meet had brushed me off without really considering my pitch. But that was okay, because there was really only one person I’d come to see: Dave McClure. Dave McClure was the founding partner of 500 Startups, a well-respected start-up fund based in Silicon Valley with offices all over the world. I recently had received an all-important email introduction to Dave through Victoria Ransom, the cofounder of the Wildfire app (sold to Google) and a mutual friend, but thus far my email had gone unanswered. I knew Dave was at the event, because he had been one of the speakers that afternoon. This was my chance to connect with him in the flesh. I stood in a room filled with entrepreneurs and investors, hoping to get the attention of just one. I was contemplating whether to get a drink from the bar, when all of a sudden I heard, “I have got to talk to the man wearing those fucking shoes!” I looked up, and there was Dave McClure. Of the three hundred people in the room, the one I wanted to talk to the most was actually stopping me to chat. Why? He had noticed my bright orange sneakers, and in a room filled with people dying to talk to him, my sneakers were the reason he had decided to initiate a conversation with me. This was my chance, and I wasn’t going to waste it.
