Gayle Hardie, a consultant, coach, Senior Member of the Enneagram in Business Network (EIBN) from Australia, writes about Enthusiasm for her monthly insight.


Gayle's Insights about Enthusiasm

Enthusiasm is seeing the potential, exploring the possibilities, bringing energy and vitality to situations and finding a way forward.

When I find myself in situations where it would be very easy to lay the blame on others for all the things that don't go as planned, don't succeed, don't happen, don't change, don't go my way or the right way, don't have an ending, don't have everyone's commitment or don't make sense, I reflect on the above statement and choose a different path.

As you read all those "don'ts," how did you start to feel? Less and less enthusiastic is often the response I get from others when I ask that question. It can be incredibly draining to remain "below the line" in blame, experiencing all of the things that "don't work."

Adding enthusiasm to the mix of responses can get us back up above the line and taking personal responsibility in exploring what is possible. How might we see enthusiasm in you?
