Description

“Wagele and Stabb are great detectives who will help you understand your perfect habitat for all you can bring to the workplace.
—Chip Conley, Founder/CEO, Joie de Vivre Hospitality, and author of Peak

 

Employing the Enneagram Personality Assessment System, Elizabeth Wagele, author of The Enneagram Made Easy, and career workshop and events organizer Ingrid Stabb can help you discover The Career Within You. Unlike “one-size-fits-all” self-help business books, The Career Within You provides everything you need to fully understand your individual strengths, gifts, needs, and distinct personality traits, and will point you toward a job uniquely tailored to you. “It will free you to become the person you know you really want to be,” says Gil Garcetti, former Los Angeles County District Attorney and Consulting Producer of “The Closer.”
