The basic message is clear: Bullying is a huge problem, not only in schools, but also, in all segments of our global community. Our effective anti-bullying model shows how to create a network of interdependence, bringing out the strengths of each person involved. It is primarily a question of changing attitudes, knowledge, and behaviors in schools, in personal or business life through AWARENESS. The tool is the Enneagram, specifically the lower levels of each type and how each interacts in different settings, with resulting stress. By understanding the differences between the Assertive Types, (8, 7, 3), Compliant Types (1, 2, 6) and Introverted Types (4, 5, 9), through the lens of levels, we quickly see who is predisposed to be the bully, the bullied or the bystander.
