Enneagram In Business Programme

Bringing Out the Best in Yourself at Work | Train-the-Trainer

6-day Train-the-Trainer Programme with Ginger Lapid-Bogda, PhD

How can you effectively train and consult with organisations, enabling them to create sustainability and achieve positive results using the Enneagram? This Programme, based on Bringing Out the Best in Yourself at Work, gives you first-hand experience and detailed activities to bring the Enneagram to life in organizations via the most important and frequently used business applications of the Enneagram: communication, conflict, feedback, teams, leadership, and coaching. By integrating the Enneagram with time-tested models from the behavioral sciences and leadership development, you’ll learn high-impact activities that make the Enneagram come to life!

Programme Overview

The Train-the-Trainer Programme based on Bringing Out the Best in Yourself at Work is highly interactive as participants engage in many of the hands-on activities in the elaborate Trainer’s Guide. Learning by doing is a core foundation of this Programme as you experience the 9 Enneagram styles come alive in these foundational activities!


While it essential to remember that it is not the trainer or consultant’s job to type another person, it is our role to teach the system and guide participants in our Programme to discover (uncover) their own Enneagram style. This Programme teaches you how to do this in a group setting – using Typing Cards and other materials – and the typing process also applies in a 1-1 setting.


Because this is the most commonly used Enneagram application in business settings, the applications section of the Programme begins here, with multiple activities to help others understand their type better and to enhance their communication skills in the process. The focus is on speaking style, body language, blind spots, and distorting filters when listening.


Feedback is the most under-utilised skill in organizations today! Many companies provide skill-based job training and rewards systems when the real issue is that people do not get enough honest feedback, both positive and constructive. In this section of the Programme, you’ll learn how to teach the art of giving feedback and the following “how tos”: type-based strengths in giving feedback, type-based common feedback errors, and how to adjust feedback to the 9 styles for optimal impact.


Most people prefer to not engage in conflict, yet conflict exists in almost all relationships. With too much unresolved conflict, relationships and work suffer. With too little conflict, either people are not being forthcoming or relationships and work lose their vitality. In this section, you’ll learn to understand and work with conflict from an entirely new perspective, one that makes conflict productive for organizations and a source of deep development for individuals. Why? Both the issues that cause us to react negatively and how we deal with these reactions are a result of our Enneagram style. As a result, conflict becomes a fertile source for our own personal and professional development.


Leadership style is a direct outgrowth of Enneagram style, and the Enneagram is a premier approach to help leaders identify their predictable strengths and derailers (development areas), as well as their paths for growth. Based on leadership paradigms and paradigm shifts, this section of the Programme is an easy-to-use and understandable way to help leaders dramatically develop.


This Programme has a major focus on using the Enneagram to understand individual behavior and team dynamics, and then to use this insight for individual growth and the creation of high performing teams. We use team goals and interdependence, team roles, and the four stages of team development (forming, storming, norming, and performing), all integrated with the Enneagram.


This section focuses on the Enneagram and intuitive coaching as a way to access our inner resource as coaches.


You’ll learn multiple transformational activities for your own self-development, but also for use with your leadership clients. These activities work very effectively in organisational settings.
