The 12 Type Enneagram can be employed as a psychometric tool for all aspects of personnel management:

  • Hiring – Understand someone’s essence type at the outset. This allows for a much better job-person fit. Weed out applicants who present well but lack the essential qualities needed for the job
  • Team – Recognise and work with team members’ strengths and weaknesses. Be alert for predictable issues.
  • Development – Use the progressive value of the 12 Type Enneagram to accurately grow team member performance.
  • Feedback – Identify type to overcome limitations. Problems develop out of a lack of information about essence types and utilising the right energy.
  • Disciplinary – Knowing a defaulting worker’s essence type enables precise, appropriate disciplinary action. Individuals will experience relief once they discover it’s not them, it is type limitation. This also provides the solution: by knowing where they need to go to fill in what they are missing, workers achieve higher productivity
