Prior to knowing the Enneagram, it was often difficult to get to the core of many issues and find lasting solutions!
“Despite the huge investments of time and money by your organization into leadership and staff development, why do so many people fall into the same old traps they have always fallen in to?”
“Because none of the existing models uncover the hidden drivers of our behaviour. Everything starts with knowing this. If we don’t know this, we will never understand and change ourselves or others!”
Without the Enneagram, we will keep hearing people say “people are our greatest resource”. But leaders and teams will never truly capitalize on this resource, creating consistently productive and well-motivated work teams, until they deeply understand the basics: What Drives People… and What Drives Me?
After Hilary embraced the Enneagram as a key method of intervening in organizational issues, speedy, wide-reaching, long-term results were achieved!
With the insights available through the Enneagram, people see exactly what is happening and can immediately change their, and others’, patterns of acting and reacting! Organizational issues can now be deeply understood and resolved! The Enneagram allows people to get “to the guts” of even the most entrenched, and previously unsolvable, issues and address them at last. It reaches the mind, heart and soul of people!
Organizational managers & staff are saying…
“Who needs conflict resolution tools, when you have the Enneagram? By developing a deep understanding between people, the enneagram provides the knowledge to prevent disputes from developing, rather than offering merely a cure.”
“Listening to participants of my type talk about their strengths and areas for improvement proved to be invaluable. By the end of the second day I was absolutely clear about my goal. I lost no time in putting my newly discovered wisdom into practice and was astounded. Not only did it actually work for me, but it also gave me a deeper understanding of all my behaviours in relationships. I recommend this to anyone interested in being truly human!”
“While some of the content is fairly confronting, it is also very liberating. It is not for the faint-hearted. But if you are game, it provides the kind of insights that really makes a difference in the way you choose to live your life – at work and at home.”
“A fascinating insight into the person I have become. This goes far beyond the job. It will help me live the rest of my life. Thank-you. Thank-you. Thank-you.”
The Enneagram is the most powerful and insightful tool yet for understanding teams, leadership, and human behaviour.
It describes nine distinctly different personality profiles, revealing the driver behind everything we do. It tells us who we really are! The Enneagram also reveals the hidden behaviour patterns that hold people back at work, and in their day to day interactions.
The Enneagram extends far beyond other personality type descriptions (like MBTI). It gets to the very heart of how we work, and the strengths and talents we offer each other and our organizations. It also confronts us by identifying our compulsive self-defeating patterns that are in our “blind spots”!
Once people and teams understand the Enneagram, they discover their:
When these are clear, people and teams can solve the problems that have been on-going barriers to productivity and satisfaction in their working lives.
Scary to get into this territory? Maybe… but immensely rewarding, and useful if the leader or the team wants a solid foundation from which to be consistently effective!
In the past few decades, the Enneagram has been rediscovered and adopted by organizational practitioners around the world and is “state-of-the-art” in executive coaching, leadership, team & staff development. It is the most complete way of knowing ourselves, and what we can contribute as leaders and as team members.
So what do you get when you use the Enneagram to address people issues?
As your Enneagram type is driving what you are thinking and doing, every minute of every day, it’s invaluable knowing how you are different from others around you. With the Enneagram at your fingertips, you can break free of your compulsive behaviours. You will be more productive, a better leader or team member, a more effective communicator, and far more skilful in developing others.
You will also find that coming to work each day is far more satisfying, as many of the intransigent people-issues CAN be solved!
