The Enneagram is quickly becoming one of the most powerful tools leaders are using to improve team dynamics and accelerate personal professional growth. The nine different Enneagram styles, identified as numbers One through Nine, reflect distinct habits of thinking, feeling, and behaving, with each style connected to a unique path of development. Each of us has only one place, or number, on the Enneagram.
In a business context, the Enneagram is used as a leadership development tool to increase emotional intelligence, which has been shown to be the greatest predictor of success. The Enneagram has also proven to be highly effective in understanding workplace and team dynamics, especially in high-stress environments.
Whether in coaching, a team retreat, or an Enneagram-specific workshop, you’ll be asked to complete a validated online Enneagram survey through The Enneagram Institute. The survey consists of 144 forced choice questions, which means you’ll be asked to choose between two options for each question. Completing the survey should take about 30 minutes or less. Upon your completion of the survey, we will receive your results and compile your full Enneagram report, which will include comprehensive details about your Type. You’ll receive your results, along with various supporting learning materials, in your coaching retreat, team offsite, or Enneagram workshop described below.
Gain a strong understanding of the Enneagram system in either a half or full-day workshop with your leadership team. You’ll receive deep insights about your leadership approach, communication preferences, conflict style, and common stress reactions for your unique personality type. The full-day workshop explores how individual personality types show up in the context of team, including how these affect specific team dynamics and performance. Dialogue focuses on the make up of Enneagram strengths that can be thoughtfully leveraged for growth, as well as potential pitfalls, particularly during times of change or acute stress.
Following your participation in the Enneagram workshop, you can choose to dive deeply into a more personalized understanding of how your Enneagram type is impacting your work and life, creating a development roadmap uniquely tailored to your needs. Individuals who have experienced this “Enneagram-based Coaching” have said that it rapidly accelerated their personal learning and gave them breakthrough insights they did not necessarily receive in more traditional coaching settings. This work is particularly powerful for leaders seeking the highest levels of self-mastery and awareness, who often choose to follow this targeted coaching with comprehensive executive coaching support for another 6-12 months.
