WORKSHOP: The Enneagram and Effective Communication | March 23, 2019

The Enneagram and Effective Communication

The Enneagram is a powerful tool for understanding people, their points of view, motivations, chief concerns, and communication styles. How the Enneagram relates to communication is among its most useful applications. Effective communication requires self-awareness, interpersonal skill, and recognition of differing personal and cultural values.

Although each Enneagram type has a “default” style of communicating, all nine styles can work well in given situations, bringing an important perspective and contribution. We can access other styles and override our own default style when we are conscious and aware. However, on auto-pilot, we can backslide into habitual communication patterns.

To build rapport and satisfying relationships with a diversity of people, we must cultivate the consciousness, skill, and flexibility to communicate effectively with all Enneagram types. Mastering this skill fosters understanding, tolerance, mutual respect, and compassion.

In this workshop, you will 1. Understand how nine different communication styles develop from Enneagram types. 2. Learn about your own communication style and its unintended distortions which impact other people. 3. Maximize your communication strengths and minimize your challenges that could cause your message to be misinterpreted, or not heard at all. 4. Practice skills for effective communication and mutual understanding with all nine Enneagram Types. 5. Learn how to create rapport and avoid unnecessary conflicts.
