When Sean Palmer first heard about Enneagram Threes he knew that he was one and wondered why everyone else wouldn’t want to be.

The teaching pastor at Ecclesia Houston (one of America’s most innovative, missional communities), Sean is a sought-after writer, speaker, teacher, emcee, and speaking coach engaging audiences all over the world.

It has become a valuable tool in how she moves from thinking and into action in relationship with others and the world around her.

Marlena Graves is a writer, seminary professor, and full-time PhD student at Bowling Green State University. She learned about the Enneagram from some writer friends, and it took her some time to figure out her number and wing. How Nine of her! She always wondered why she felt so conflicted inside—then she discovered it’s because she is an Enneagram Nine with an Eight wing. She hopes to demonstrate that Nines can lead diplomatically, have strong opinions, and though they come at you sideways, they shouldn’t be underestimated. The author of A Beautiful Disaster, The Way Up Is Down, and Forty Days on Being a Nine, Marlena lives with her husband and three daughters in Toledo, Ohio.
