The Enneagram for leaders and teams

The Enneagram is a system of personality that enables personal and professional development amongst individuals, teams, groups and communities. It teaches us to learn about our gifts and our blind spots and shows us how we can understand some people very well and others not so much. The enneagram allows us to learn to appreciate, tolerate and manage difference. We learn how to harness and bring out the dynamic creativity and stability that every group and organisation needs to thrive.
