HR Competencies

  • Communication

If you have ever asked yourself, “Why do people act the way they do?” The Enneagram will help you answer that question by defining nine distinct personality TYPES and how each TYPE views and interacts in the world. Our personality is a set of habitual patterns and coping strategies built up over a lifetime. Understanding the motivation and strategies behind the behavior of each TYPE allows us to build compassion for ourselves and others in order to better communicate more effectively in the workplace.


  • Identify descriptors for all nine TYPES

  • Understand the motivation and strategies behind all nine TYPES
