On my most recent podcast episode, I went into detail about what the Enneagram is, and how it can be used to draw good movement. Well today, Tom is back for another episode, and he’s going to be sharing HIS take on the Enneagram! We’re talking about Tom’s initial thoughts on the Enneagram and how that’s changed over time, the value in knowing YOUR specific type + the other types, digging into self-awareness in order to understand how you impact those around you, the stigma around mental health in agriculture, and more.
While Tom was definitely hesitant about the Enneagram at first (nope, he didn’t like being ‘Enneagrammed’ by me when I was first learning about it), but we’ve both learned a LOT, and have come a long way since discovering our Enneagram types. Now we know how much our specific types can affect not only our relationship, but how we interact with other people in the world too.
Ultimately, choosing to extend grace when you’re communicating with anyone is vital. The Enneagram and the good movement trainings can be extremely helpful as you’re continuing to learn more about yourself, as well as those around you!
In this episode, Tom’s Take on the Enneagram + Good Movement Trainings, we cover:
- Tom’s initial thoughts on the Enneagram
- What eventually led Tom to finding value in and using the Enneagram
- How the Enneagram positively impacted Tom’s work and management approach + the start of the good movement trainings
- The value in knowing your specific Enneagram type + the other types as well
- The importance of exploring self-awareness and understanding how you can affect other people
- How the Enneagram can help decrease generational communication gaps + help you truly understand that not everyone views the world in the same way
- Why mental health is such a huge deal in agriculture + why it’s usually harder to ask for/get help when you’re in agriculture
- Applying the good movement principle to both people and animals + using the Enneagram to dramatically improve communication with those around you

More about the Good Movement Draws Good Movement podcast:
In stockmanship (the art and science of handling cattle in a safe, effective, low-stress manner), we have this phrase . . . good movement draws good movement.
It’s this thing that happens when we ask a small group of cattle, maybe a cow, or a pair to move out in a certain direction and their movement draws the whole herd into moving in the same direction.
Good movement happens when we approach the cattle with a positive attitude, read and really listen to what they’re telling us, and communicate accordingly.
We don’t approach the aware, flighty cattle the same as we do the tame, docile cattle. We adjust ourselves, our energy, and approach, and communicate with each differently.
These adjustments help us effectively draw good movement from each, which then draws good movement from the herd. But it starts with us.
The same is true for humans. Good movement starts with us.
Welcome to Good Movement Draws Good Movement, the podcast where farmers, ranchers, and rural folks can grow relationally through awareness, understanding, and effective communication.
Hey, it’s me – T. I’m your host, and I, along with my guests, will be covering topics related to drawing good movement – things like self and social awareness, brain science, positive psychology, extending grace, and so much more.
We’ll share tools that can help you understand why you are the way you are, why others are the way they are, and how you can use that to step out of self-told lies with grace and compassion to draw good movement in conversations, relationships, and life in rural America.
