The Enneagram and Collaborative Practice
Modern-day stressors have created a population that is more reactive, aggressive, and polarized
than we have experienced in a long time, if ever before. Every action invites a response and/or a
reaction from others. Join Dr. Randy Heller as she discusses what drives our behavior using the
Enneagram and how to successfully manage it by providing strategies to be the most effective
Collaborative professionals and overall individuals that we can be. Not only will Dr. Heller’s
presentation impact our Teamwork, but our endeavors as peacemakers as well.
The Enneagram is an archetypal framework consisting of nine types that offer in-depth insight to
individuals, groups, and collectives. Consisting of three Centers of intelligence, nine enneagram
types, wings, twenty-seven subtypes, harmonics, and hornevians, this model offers a rich map to
personal development from an open systems perspective. It does not box people in but rather
opens a pathway to self-discovery and greater personal awareness. The Integrative Enneagram
unlocks and supports your journey of self-discovery and uncovers the patterns of behavior that
subconsciously drive and motivate us to behave in certain ways. When we make these
motivations conscious, we are able to transcend them and develop richer, more supportive ways
of being. Working with this model empowers individuals to take the first step of responsibility
for their own behaviors and growth, through a greater understanding of why they act and react
the way they do.
Obtain an overview of the nine Enneagram types, information to gain insight into your
predominant type, and how you can utilize this information effectively to better understand
yourself in the context of your relationships and circumstances.
