Synopses & Reviews
Adapting a centuries-old psychological system of personality profiling, The Enneagram Advantage gives invaluable insight into your own business persona as well as those of your colleagues, bosses, clients, and corporate cultures. Best-selling author Helen Palmer has written the ultimate guide to using this remarkable system at the office and in business relationships.
The Enneagram is a powerful tool that is reshaping the face of business in the 1990s. With straightforward techniques that are easy to understand and simple to apply, The Enneagram Advantage helps you break free of rigid perceptions about yourself, your business environment, and the way you think and act in the office. Palmer teaches you how to identify yourself as one of the nine personalities--the Perfectionist, the Giver, the Performer, the Romantic, the Observer, the Loyal Skeptic, the Epicure, the Boss, or the Mediator. She then pinpoints the strengths and weaknesses of the types: how they interact with others; how they think and perform in their jobs; what motivates them; and how they communicate. The Enneagram Advantage provides a powerful and proven method for self-discovery and gives you the tools you need to improve and enhance all of your professional associations and activities.
