The Enneagram is a catalyst for organizational development at the individual, team, and organizational levels. Enneagram-based insight has the ability to reflect deep motivators and change behaviors, giving it great power in the context of a complex adaptive system such as a team or organization. As it speaks to intrinsic motivations, the Enneagram adds deep value to engagement, change management, organizational culture, team development, and organizational coherence. In teams and broader groupings, the Enneagram offers both diagnosis and development opportunities by reflecting “what is” as well as holding the key to new behavior patterns and solution-mechanisms.
The Enneagram is not a superficial framework to provide quick and short-lived insight – its depth and layered approach allows for unfolding and adapting organizational journeys over time. Clients find that the Enneagram continues to resonate with them as they change and grow, allowing them to work deeper and deeper, tapping into subtler and more powerful pathways to development.
In 21st century organizations, we look to leadership to do so much – to provide strategic clarity, individual mentoring and growth, lead change and engagement, promote diversity and inclusion and much more.
A key barrier to this is the individual leader’s own self-awareness and capacity to change. Our clients consistently find that the iEQ9 offers true breakthroughs through focusing on self-awareness, emotional intelligence and capacity for vertical development, continuously learning and growing through a deep connection with their authentic self. Leaders also gain insights into the different motivators and drivers of others, accelerating their effectiveness as coaches and mentors.
The Enneagram offers a diverse view of leadership that acknowledges nine (or 27) different forms of power and opens up the possibility to develop more leaders from diverse backgrounds and levels. The framework goes beyond traditional, limited ideas about leadership such as ‘leaders don’t show weakness’ or ‘leaders have all the answers’ and invites leaders to step into their own power through a unique development path, rather than trying to emulate others around them.
Culture is seen as a key source of competitive advantage in the modern organization, yet it stubbornly resists efforts to ‘design’ or ‘change’ it to an envisioned culture. The iEQ9 offers the opportunity to sense, analyse and dig deep into the underlying assumptions and beliefs that form the organizational DNA expressed in your culture, and therefore the strategies and opportunities to shape, tweak and leverage that culture to maximize its potential.
Our culture tools:
- Reveal the ‘centers of gravity’ and limiting beliefs that underpin your culture, and the key developmental actions to shift it
- Map the cultures and subcultures built on different values in different parts of the organization
- Go deep ‘below the waterline’ to identify and name the limiting beliefs, values or fears that may be keeping your culture ‘stuck’ and resistant to change
- Indicate the most appropriate levers to shape the culture of diverse groups and teams, by making sense of how unique individual or group values interact with the broader culture.
Teams are fundamental in organizations, with some theorists suggesting that people don’t leave organizations, they love or leave their team and direct manager. The demands for agility, rapid change and collaboration are leading many organizations to redesign their structures with less hierarchy and more flat team structures. This increase in teamwork and collaboration means more individual accountability for employees, for themselves and how they engage with others in teams, requiring high EQ and awareness. The Enneagram offers deep insights into both individual and team culture, values and barriers, empowering the team with a deeper understanding of themselves and each other, and highlighting potential avenues to grow and develop.
