Understanding that the single individual owns a great part of the responsibility for the team’s wellbeing, the team-members–and not solely the team leader–can create the most successful team. This presentation will demonstrate team-related use of the Enneagram focusing on the interrelation between the types, the power between role (member/leader) and type, the ability to co-work a team over time and setting up rules and expectations for the teamwork. The presentation will demonstrate theory, exercises and learning points of the 28-day Enneagram Master Leadership classes, which the company, THINK ABOUT IT, delivers in Denmark.

Flemming Christensen published Keep the Spirit in 2001, the first book in Danish about the Enneagram in relation to business life. In 2003, his book Successful Management – Through Insight in Essential Values was available in the Danish stores. His book Awaken Your Dreams also takes the Enneagram in account, when you work with your dreams of your life – both in business and in your private life. The last two books The Enneagrambook, 2006, and The Coachingbook – Using Essential Coaching, 2007, shows how the Enneagram can be used as a foundation for personal change and development.

One of THINK ABOUT IT’s essential tools is the Enneagram, and the firm has thereby helped international companies such as Tellabs, Pfizer, Capgemini, Microsoft and IBM.
