The ENNEAGRAM

The Enneagram has been taught in Ireland for decades and has been used by communities, organisations and companies throughout the country.

The Enneagram is a personality  system which seems at first glance to be in a similar vein to profiling tools such as the Myers Briggs Type Indicator or the Belbin system. It is, however, more complex and has roots in teachings reaching back to the Plotinus and the Ancient Greeks.

The Enneagram is a system describing the 9 main mental models we adopt due to our main focus of attention and the impact they have on our thinking and communication. They are grouped in 3s around the centres of Feeling (Heart) types, Thinking (Head) types and Instinct (Gut) types. All types in the Enneagram system are driven by their distinct motivations, which leads them to have different priorities. This personality framework helps you understand how to cultivate healthy relationships, behavior, or motives of the other party.

A wonderful tool for developing awareness and emotional intelligence, it has in modern times been used by many in the business community and is taught in companies all over the globe, has been taught on the MBA curriculum at the Stanford Business School and the Law Curriculum in Harvard.
