Have you ever wondered what makes your volunteers tick? Wonder why some come back and others don't? Thought "If only I could figure out how to motivate our volunteers"?
Look no further. The Enneagram is a sophisticated, powerful, and ancient system for self-understanding and personal development, and is used worldwide as an effective tool in work, spirituality, and psychology. Come spend the morning studying this tool which will reshape the way you approach volunteer management.
The Enneagram offers a roadmap to address the specific challenges of each personality type and to develop the unique virtues of that type that are waiting to be discovered. Support for better relationships and communication is a focus of the system, because discovering the “lens” through which we view the world is the first step in our comprehending how others may experience the world differently. Just a basic understanding of the Enneagram broadens your skill in communicating with others.
The Enneagram helps people intentionally relate to each other by understanding what motivates themselves and others. Common problems caused by miscommunications and other misunderstandings often result from people assuming that others see, or should see, the world the way they do. The Enneagram puts organizational members on the fast track to improving their working relationships. With knowledge of the Enneagram, one can respond and interact in a manner that results in deeper understanding, better communication, and a more skillful use of energy toward achieving mutual goals.
