This interactive session will introduce the “Integrative Approach” through the application of the Enneagram to make sense of individual, team and organizational dynamics. By scaling our understanding of the system from microto macro-levels, the Enneagram’s relevance as a sense-making framework is expanded to encompass more than the intrapersonal domain. At each level of exploration, the session will present issue-centric case studies to explore dynamics, focusing on: Centers of Intelligence; Enneagram point of resonance; Harmonic and Hornevian styles driving interpersonal dynamics; Strain/Stress. The case studies will enable participants to explore the implications of the perspective and boundaries applied to frame each situation or issue. With the Enneagram fulfilling the role of the central framework for exploring organizational health and effectiveness, we will explore polarities such as: Individual identity and organizational culture, individual strain and collective strain, leadership style and team identity. The session will build a picture of emergent complexity in an organizational context. This includes the consideration of the individual, the team, the leader in relation to the team, the team in relation to the organization and the organization in relation to its customers, suppliers and other stakeholders.
