Self awareness and the Enneagram

Emotional Intelligence is the greatest predictor of success in the workplace, far outweighing technical capability. Why? Because smart leaders and team members truly understand that working with others effectively and making yourself easy to work with will reap real results for the team and the bottom line.

Collective Possibilities uses the Enneagram to support leaders and teams become more self aware and emotionally intelligent. The Enneagram is a  synthesis of ancient wisdom and contemporary psychology that identifies nine different personality types and how to unlock the potential that resides within each of us. Each type has unique assets and liabilities and no type is inherently better or worse than any other.

Please reach out if you would like to know more about how I can bring this unique and dynamic system of self awareness to your organisation to support your people to thrive and perform.


All about Enneagram

Using the Enneagram facilitates a powerful approach to understanding the psychology, emotions and behaviour of ourselves and others.

The primary purpose of the Enneagram is self knowledge, and the benefits are numerous, including understanding how others perceive us, gaining greater insight into our strengths and how we can capitalise on them more consciously and minimising the impacts of our own self sabotaging or derailing behaviour. Applying the system also supports us to understanding what motivates the behaviour of others, and  becoming more accepting and compassionate when we are confronted with people we find troubling or behaviour we find disturbing.

The Integrative Enneagram approach gives people an understanding of the subconscious motivations, beliefs, defences and fixed behaviour patterns that lead us to get stuck or frustrated. The report highlights powerful insights about your personality type, shining an illuminating light on both your potential and your challenges

The Integrative Enneagram gives you insight and ways to develop in a range of areas:

  • Emotional and psychological factors
  • Balance of head, heart and hands
  • Relationships and social dynamics
  • Interpersonal conflict at work and home
  • Self-limiting beliefs and blind spots
  • Leadership maturity, impact and effectiveness
  • Resistance to change
  • Resilience, stress and symptoms of stress
  • Career development and transitions
  • Communication and influencing skills

By going deeper into these factors, this dynamic system supports you in growing your self-awareness and helps you accelerate growth, enrich your personal and professional relationships and grow into your best self.

The Enneagram Difference in Business
‘Thanks for helping me discover and explore my Enneagram type. Already I think this has enabled me to have more ownership of my behaviour and understand the interactions around me with greater depth. I am catching myself more and considering my responses in line with my direction of integration. I am more mindful of other people’s perspectives,
which I now understand are JUST AS VALID AS MINE
– now there’s a real aha – as this is something that I have said often, but not really understood or believed.’
