Do you tend to follow the same patterns or make the same mistakes? Do you notice that others see opportunities differently? Are you curious about how you might become a stronger leader and a more effective co-worker? The Enneagram is a time-tested system that enables you to understand personality types—for yourself and others. In this course, you will gain profound insights into how personalities drive behaviors, and you will learn a compelling framework for personal and professional growth. Using readings, videos, and interactive online activities, you will explore the nine personality types of the Enneagram. You will see patterns of behavior that are often unrecognized and the motivation behind them. It is a tool for personal growth and transformation—a way to bring out the best in yourself and others. You will be able to choose when to continue your current behavior and when another way might be better. The Enneagram can help you improve communications, better manage conflicts, embrace diversity, and strengthen your leadership skills. Using the Enneagram can also enhance your emotional intelligence: with more self-awareness comes better self-regulation, more empathy for others, and stronger social skills—all of which will help you appreciate different approaches and collaborate more effectively with others. In our new reality of dealing with people online instead of in person, and with the stressful challenges we all now face, this learning is even more relevant and important than ever before.
