What is Enneagram?

Imagine if you had a system for knowing what makes people tick. A system that allows you to bring out the best in others, tap into their strengths and navigate through their challenges. Not only that, you will learn as much, if not more about yourself. The Enneagram is a
dynamic system of nine personality types that provides this insight and knowledge.

It’s an ancient 9-point system that puts people in nine distinct personality types. What is unique about Enneagram is its focus on the dynamism of life. Not only does it provide a comprehensive profile of your employees, but it also considers the growth and regression of your employee’s types, as well as the complex motivations behind their actions.

What is Emotional Intelligence?

 Emotional Intelligence is the ability to identify our emotions and manage our responses to them

 It is also related to identifying others’ emotions and manage our responses to them

 From the iceberg perspective the effects of higher/ lower emotional intelligence are visible as desired/ undesired behaviors above the water line


An essential program to bring about Self-Awareness via the Enneagram tool and increase Emotional Intelligence, amongst young managers and teams

The situation

Some of your best leaders and employees are competent in crucial business areas but interact poorly with people. Under pressure they may bully, ignore, threaten or embarrass employees, vendors, and customers.

The Problem

People spend more time repairing interpersonal problems than getting work done. Employees are disgruntled and unmotivated. Teams disintegrate. Productivity and profits go down.

The Solution

Svadhyaya helps people master their emotions, relate to employees in a more productive way, and drive for results. Our approach pinpoints specific actions and establishes personal practice routines, helping people create new habits that solve their emotional intelligence problems.

What is Svadhyaya?

If you're in business today, you're feeling it – the hustle and the haste; the push and the profit. Everyone's after faster decisions, quicker resolutions and better results.

The shadow side of many organizations is the lack of “engagement" as reported by employees.
A report from Deloitte & Touché based on thousands of interviews indicates that only 25-30% of US workers feel that their best contributions are being harnessed. This means that the other 70% are either “disengaged" or “actively disengaged." The cost of this is estimated at $350 billion per year.

Our Enneagram and Emotional Intelligence Program “Svadhyaya” enables leaders to access
information that would otherwise be unavailable to them. This can enhance the quality of relationships, decision-making and productivity. By tapping into ‘emotional language’, employees are also able to know themselves better and begin to master their feelings, rather than allowing their feelings to master them. Improving Emotional Intelligence makes better
employees and leaders – it means time spent on work, not problems, resulting in greater productivity and profits

Organisations can apply Enneagram at four levels

At Individual Level

At Dialogue Level
