Build Your Own Program

There is no one-size fits all team training program, especially when that program is all about identifying and celebrating the unique personalities and perspectives of each member on the team. 

That's why with the ideas and recommendations of the Enneagram MBA faculty, you'll co-create a program that matches your goals and unique challenges while also working with your timeframe, budget, and specific team needs.

The Process Overview

 

1 - Identify your program goals and define success with your dedicated Academy guide.

 

2 - Select your curriculum topics to align with those goals (initial ideas and suggestions are to the righūüĎČ ).

 

3 - Decide on your time commitment, budget, & who will participate.

 

4 - Schedule your kick-off 1/2 to full day in-person workshop. 

 

5 - Work with the Enneagram MBA team to schedule future logistics and onboard participating team members.

What to Expect Inside

Multi-Month Program

It's recommended that each team in the Program host an-person kick-off workshop to build excitement, get buy-in, and create a readiness to dive into the curriculum. At the end program (determined your needs, timeline, and goals), having submitted all required assignments, each member of the team will receive a Certification of Completion. 

Monthly Lessons

New topics covering the Enneagram and ways to use it at work - both with individual professional and personal growth, and with your work relationships - will be shared in various ways including live calls and on-demand audio and video lessons. Depending on your timeframe and topics of interest below, we'll work together to create a program timeline and curriculum. 

Application Exercises

This part is important. You already know there is no shortage of information out there about getting along better at work. It's the implementation part that's often missing. You and your team will have regular funwork opportunities to turn the Enneagram insight into useful action.

Group Discussions  

Your team will meet and learn about and from one another throughout the program. Time and time again, students say that sharing with their co-workers is one of their favorite and most memorable parts of their experience. 

Individual Attention

For groups with a 4-month program or longer, each teammate will have an opportunity to participate in an Enneagram Type at Work session, a simple 360-Review assessment process, and results review.

Why the Enneagram

The Enneagram (pronounced "ANY-uh-gram") is a model for identifying nine distinct  patterns of habitual thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. The points represent a specific personality strategy and the lines represent the interrelationship of those strategies.

 

More than identifying only strengths or surface-level behaviors, it gives surprisingly accurate and useful insights into the stories we're telling ourselves, the root motives behind behaviors, and charts a specific path for each type for growth and performance improvement..

 

At Enneagram MBA we use the Awareness to Action methodology. It's a simple but extremely effective model for growth that tailored for the business world.  

Companies that have already brought Enneagram MBA to their teams:

"Not finance. Not strategy. Not technology. It is teamwork that remains the ultimate competitive advantage, both because it is so powerful and so rare.‚ÄĚ

A Chess Approach to Team-Building

In his Harvard Business Review article, "What Great Managers Do," author Marc Buckingham says that average managers play checkers, while great managers play chess.

The difference?

In checkers, all the pieces are the same and move in the same way; they are interchangeable.

Sure, you need to plan and coordinate their movements, but they all move at the same pace, on parallel paths.

In chess, each type of piece moves in a different way, and you can’t play if you don’t know how each piece moves. More important, you won’t win if you don’t think carefully about how you move the pieces.

The intention of Dream Team Academy‚ĄĘ is to use the Enneagram to help you and your team better understand each other and their unique strengths and preferences.
