The Enneagram is a system of nine personality types combining traditional wisdom with modern psychology to provide a powerful tool for understanding ourselves and the people in our lives. It represents a breakthrough approach for leadership development, emotional intelligence and communication skills for high performing teams.
The challenges of today’s economy
Companies of all sizes face a rapidly changing business environment. Three powerful forces are driving this change:
Higher Expectations From Customers and Clients
To succeed and to survive organizations must shift from a “business as usual” model to one that embraces continual change with high levels of flexibility and responsiveness.
Staff members at all levels need to learn to adapt as their roles shift, more information must be assimilated, and time lines get shorter.
Teams are replacing traditional hierarchies, and increased “people skills” are necessary to make this work. Leaders have a crucial role in this transition to embody the new set of skills and self awareness.
How the Enneagram can help
The advantage of the Enneagram is that it provides both professional skills and the self awareness and centering that is necessary for a personal paradigm shift – a shift out of our current set of assumptions and way of seeing ourselves, our relationships, and the world in which we participate.
It empowers us to make new and more successful choices, more intelligent decisions.
The Enneagram describes nine ways of seeing the world – nine points of view – that are very different from one another. Each has its strengths and blind spots. Learning to recognize these different points of view enables us to understand people’s motivation, their major needs and concerns, and their style of working and relating. It helps us build rapport, reduce unnecessary conflict, and cooperate at higher levels of effectiveness.
