The Enneagram at Work

Corporations, small businesses and nonprofits around the world are using the Enneagram as a breakthrough approach for leadership development, team building, communication skills and emotional intelligence. The Enneagram offers significant benefits for anyone who works with others, including managers, HR personnel, consultants, trainers, facilitators, negotiators and mediators.


The Enneagram is regarded by many business leaders and trainers as the most effective tool available today for developing emotional intelligence. The Enneagram provides insight into how nine personality types think and feel, their mental models and motivation. It supports our self knowledge and our ability to relate well to others, the two necessary aspects of EQ. 


Working with the Enneagram provides the necessary awareness and skills for developing greater emotional intelligence.  Effective team dynamics are key to performance, but not all teams are the same. The Enneagram can help your team:

  • Identify the strengths and challenges of nine personality styles in the workplace
  • Build rapport, reduce conflict and cooperate at higher levels of effectiveness
  • Welcome diversity and maximise each person’s highest contribution
  • Tap greater resources in others by providing specific suggestions for each member’s professional development and a clear path to personal mastery


The Enneagram offers many possibilities for team development, such as, building deeper levels of psychological safety and trust, enables a higher level of collaboration, collective learning and ultimately performance.   If you would like to know more about it or how this could be introduced into your organisation please either email or call.
