Enhance your communication skills — The enneagram of communication styles

NOTE: Meeting room in on the right side of the restaurant near the kitchen. Just ask the waitstaff!


We all see the world through different colored lenses. Furthermore, as the rest of the spectrum has a less vivid color than our own lens's color, we tend to allow in other colors only after we brush them with our own, distorting them with the familiar tones and hues that we see the world outside painted with.

The Enneagram of Personalities reveals these lenses that we wear and how that shapes our perceptions and world views. By learning our own style of distortion, we learn to see other colors more vividly, and by learning the colors others use and the distortion they use, we can better communicate to them.  This will result in painting and co-creating a more clear picture of the reality.

In this short presentation, we will look at each EnneaType's style of communication, and in an exercise, break out groups can experience first hand how their own type influences their communication style.
