The Enneagram is a powerful tool that unlocks, for each of us, who we are as well as how we get in our own way. For people in deep poverty this unlocking can be literally life giving. This tool of self-awareness provides the critical foundation for other key developments in a person’s movement out of poverty and is ultimately a force for social justice and societal change in our communities.

Come hear our story and experiences creating and bringing the unique Enneagram workshop, “Grit to Great(er)”, to men and women in situational and generational poverty as part of a larger workforce development project. You will be introduced to the team of collaborators who fashioned this workshop. We will share our story and the key components of the workshop that have made the deepest impact on the participants. Through video you will hear from several of these individuals as they share the transformative power that “Grit to Great(er)” has had in their lives. Finally, you will hear about the practical learning that has occurred for us over the years offering this workshop. There will be opportunities throughout the session for Q&A.
