Bridging the Many Divides in Health Care – How One Health System Has Leveraged the Enneagram to Impact Organizational Culture

Implicit incentives to compete can create palpable tensions within [...]

Being with Discord, Reactivity and Resistance in Enneagram Community

Following the creative group euphoria that occurs in a new Enneagram Community, disenchantment is experienced. Community "cracks" develop when our personality dynamics arise with their assumptions, `shoulds,' and "have to's," and as our interactions with our instinctual drives lead us to perceive ourselves as "not getting something I want/need," or "not liking something." This is a painful place, accompanied [...]
