This presentation is adapted from the book, From Awareness to Action: The Enneagram, Emotional Intelligence, and Change, by Robert Tallon and Mario Sikora. It is based on the presenters’experience using the Enneagram as a tool for executive coaching and team building in Fortune 500 companies, government agencies, and small businesses.

The presentation will cover the Enneagram of Strategies, a new approach to understanding the nine types, the”Awareness to Action”approach to performance improvement, and a brief overview of emotional intelligence and how the Enneagram can be an aid to improving 16 emotional competencies.

An experiential exercise will give attendees first-hand experience in applying the change process to their own lives and to their coaching of others.
