Work Successfully with Different Enneagram Personalities
“As human beings, our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world as in being able to remake ourselves.” Mahatma Gandhi
Understanding personality styles with their differing points of view, values, intuitive capacities, and problem-solving strengths can contribute to an organisation’s overall effectiveness.
The Enneagram model provides a system for leveraging this understanding to form lively teams, facilitate decision-making, develop collaborative working relationships and minimising conflict. It skilfully illustrates how the nine types perceive, process, and respond to relationships and work situations, whilst mapping different aspects of one’s personality that are likely to come forward under stressful and peak performance conditions.
In this workshop, you will learn to recognize the strengths and potential blind spots of each style to lessen conflicts and misunderstandings at work. The key takeaway is to appreciate that when all nine energies and perspectives are present, more options are generated, better problem-solving procedures are enacted, and more effective action can be taken.
By the end of the workshop you will be able to:
- Examine your mental model, your motivations, and the way you perceive the world
- Understand ways to work with your pattern of attention and reduce blind spots.
- Recognize the profile of your interpersonal style and common issues in relationships
- Devise approaches to strengthen your ability to work effectively with others.
- Comprehend insights into the concerns and issues of other personality types and how to bring forth their best contribution.
- Interpret and draw on all three centres of intelligence – head, heart, and gut.
- Explore ways to access the quality known as “embodied presence” to reduce stress and reactivity and increase personal growth, authenticity, and effective action.

“‘The most beneficial for me was learning ways to re-identify with who I am and to learn to be more objective in how I interpret things. Further, I can see another’s behaviours and actions more clearly. This enables me to really accept them for exactly who they are because I understand more fully how they operate’ Melissa Teo, MHA
“As Enneagram strives to pigeonhole behaviour, the course helped me to enhance my skills of bouncing ideas off others. Undoubtedly a very insightful course” Keith Leong, SGH
“The workshop taught me to express the nine different personality types well. I’m better able to understand my (and that of others at work) values and vulnerabilities, adaptive and maladaptive visions, and resourceful as well as non- resourceful states.” Nina Sim, KFC
“I’m able to appreciate my own assets and liabilities and become more adaptable in working with others.” Thomas Wong, Marina Bay Sands
