Enneagram Podcast with Ian Morgan Cron

My good friend Cindy Morgan and I were thrilled to join friends, authors and Enneagram experts Ian Morgan Cron and Suzanne Stabile on their insightful and charming “Road Back To You” podcast.  Listen to it here OR subscribe to the podcast on iTunes.

“Do you ever wonder how the Enneagram can help in your relationship with another person?

Maybe you work with someone who is on the opposite side of the personality spectrum, and you have a hard time connecting or relating to them.

Well, this week’s podcast should be very helpful for you!

Ian and Suzanne interview Cindy Morgan (Enneagram 4) and Andrew Greer (Enneagram 2); two of Nashville’s finest singer/songwriters who write, tour and sing together.

While they are both in the heart/feeling triad, Cindy, as an Enneagram 4 tends to focus inward while Andrew, an Enneagram 2, directs all his energy toward others. In their delightful conversation, you will begin to see how their two orientations help strengthen their bond and make them the incredibly creative and productive duo that they are today.

And if that wasn’t enough, they will perform two songs, live in The Road Back To You studio.”

Hosting Dove Awards Backstage!

Andrew hosted exclusive backstage interviews at the Dove Awards 2016 telecast at Allen Arena in Nashville, Tennessee. You can find these backstage conversations with some of gospel music’s most talked about artists and Andrew – including Lecrae, Tamela Mann, Kari Jobe, Sonya Isaacs and Hollyn – at CCMmagazine.com.
