Teams are fundamental to performance in most organizations today, and yet remain difficult to understand, align and develop. Teamwork and collaboration challenge our organizations and individual employees, requiring greater awareness of themselves and how they engage with others in teams.
The Integrative Enneagram Team Report reflects insights and data to support teams in a shared journey of discovery and improvement. Whether they are familiar with the Enneagram or new to the framework, this report offers a springboard for growing interpersonal and team awareness, tapping into team gifts at a deep level and, ultimately, enabling teams to express their purpose and potential fully.
A great deal of the conflict and friction experienced in teams is a result of misunderstandings or a lack of awareness and effective team processes. The Team Enneagram Report highlights potential areas of friction in the team and the underlying patterns or assumptions. The report helps teams understand their social and conflict styles and develop processes to harness healthy conflict as a driver of performance, not a barrier.
Teams aren't born great, but evolve to high-performance through a set of development stages as they negotiate shared values, priorities and ways of working. Over time, they form a unique team style, a set of collective values, norms and beliefs that give the team a distinctive 'character' and guide how members see their purpose, roles and relationships. Not all great teams are the same - each must develop a unique contract and effective ways of working together that harness the gifts of their team, and the Enneagram supports this.
Working with your Enneagram as a team offers opportunities to build deeper levels of psychological safety and trust, enabling a higher quality of collaboration, collective learning and ultimately, performance. Depending on your current team issues and development priorities, different growth paths within the Enneagram may be more or less helpful.
Highly effective teams are made up of individuals with strong self-awareness, who understand and relate to co-workers, have an understanding of group and team dynamics and know how to harness their diverse gifts and strengths. The Enneagram Team Report invites the team to value and support the unique contribution of each member. The Enneagram develops compassion for the individuals in a team and offers insight and practical tips on working with different types.
Our Integrative reports are continuously being upgraded and developed to incorporate new insights and feedback from our clients. Our reports are also flexible and modular, allowing coaches and practitioners to adapt reporting formats to their process. By selecting the content, length and data included, you can build a report that best suits the needs of your client, the team or the organization and focuses participants on the most relevant data.
We have used the Integrative Enneagram Team Reports as part of a leadership development programme with a major client. These reports enabled great interpersonal awareness and recognition of how the teams are functioning, as well as what is missing. They also acted as a catalyst for honest communication and helped the teams to identify practical changes that they could make to their way of working.
I used the Individual and Team IEQ products for a large management services and training company. After a restructure they wanted their new teams to align thinking. The accuracy of the individual profiles was incredibly high. I ran team alignment sessions to build understanding of each other and to improve team performance. Long after the initial exercises, the teams still used the insights from these sessions. Feedback was very positive and I have continued to use the IEQ reports with other companies in team coaching and executive coaching with excellent effect.
Through the Integrative trainings, and work with the Enneagram, I was not only enriched personally, but also equipped to have a significant impact on the lives and being of others – individuals, teams and companies. The IEQ enables me to confidently coach and teach individuals and groups with noteworthy results and outcomes. I can honestly say that Integrative Enneagram Solutions played a significant role in establishing me as a leadership consultant and coach. Working with the Enneagram has impacted tremendously on my own life – I am continuously becoming a more and more enriched person.
I am so grateful for the contribution Integrative has made to the Enneagram. The synthesis and decoding of complex information into something that is accessible is a great service to me and the clients I work with. I am very excited by the team report and the many ways in which it can support team development.
