Ian Morgan Cron – Author and Pioneer of the Enneagram  •  @iancron

Ian Morgan Cron is a cultural pioneer of the Enneagram, bestselling author, psychotherapist, Dove Award–winning songwriter, and Episcopal priest. His books include the novel Chasing Francis and spiritual memoir Jesus, My Father, the CIA, and Me. Ian draws on an array of disciplines—from psychology to the arts, Christian spirituality and theology—to help people enter more deeply into conversation with God and the mystery of their own lives. He and his wife, Anne, live in Nashville, Tennessee.

At his core, Ian is a storyteller; he weaves his knowledge into narratives that illustrate, rather than merely instruct. His stories engage the imagination and speak to the skeptic and believer that live within all of us.

Ian is a pioneer of the Enneagram, an ancient personality typing system that identifies nine types of people and how they relate to one another and the word. The Enneagram is a powerful tool for understanding why we behave the way that we do, and how our motivations are largely determined by personality. It provides a framework for how we can begin to live into our most authentic selves, and also reveals the wisdom that each personality type can offer to others. The Enneagram is therefore not just a powerful tool for personal growth, but also an ongoing journey of transformation that we can take with our families, co-workers, and faith communities.

Wise, Weird & Welcome: Learning and Leading with the Lepers and the Locust Eaters

We’ve all read the same books about teamwork, leadership, communication, and culture that everybody reads. We’ve mastered Maxwell, studied Sanborn, Sinek, and Sun Tzu, and liberally cribbed Collins in aborted attempts to go from good to great, but…

How’s that working out for you? 

What if you left St. Louis with an entirely new lens through which to view and act upon improvements in:

Let’s examine how this all connects together, but approach it from an entirely different angle. Don’t just think outside the box. Kick the box to the curb and start at zero.
