The Enneagram describes nine different sets of values and filters through which the world can be seen. It does not “put people in boxes.” Instead, It actually helps people learn to recognize and expand the boxes they are already in, and ultimately to dissolve those boxes. It’s a respectful and dynamic system that provides a path of healthy development for each type, including how to build on strengths and avoid pitfalls. It assists leaders and employees in understanding themselves, clients, customers, others in the organization, and the organization itself through new eyes. Energy is freed for productivity and creativity that was previously lost in frustration and agitation.
Integration of the Enneagram allows teams and organizations to optimize individuals’ strengths, take advantage of synergy, improve teamwork, enhance mutual understanding and respect, improve leadership, enhance communication, and increase customer satisfaction, morale, productivity, and employee retention.
