Enneagram Personality Types

Knowing How Others Tick

enneagram_large_175A few years ago, the Gallup organization commissioned a study to find out what makes a great manager. They interviewed 80,000 managers worldwide and their conclusion was that the really great managers are those who understand their staff. They know what makes them tick. They understand their wiring. They know their strengths and they understand their personalities. Which means better people decisions, better management of teams, and better management of conflict. Through understanding personalities and personality types, you too can excel as a people manager.
