Develop your emotional
intelligence 

Research proves that emotional intelligence (EI) is one of the best predictors of success. EI is the ability to understand, accept and lead yourself and to interact effectively with different people. It requires finding out what kind of classes use, which means the filters through which we see ourselves and the world.

To develop emotional intelligence True Potential utilises, among other approaches and tools, the Enneagram.  The Enneagram is a powerful tool and dynamic system to help you to discover your personality pinpointing also motivational factors and the coping strategy behind behaviour. It shows the automatic patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving and the core beliefs driving them. It helps you to find our core strengths and typical areas of development and also suggests practical ways to develop yourself, increase your agility and resilience; to meet changing and often ambiquous situations without falling into trap of your own habitual ways of thinking, feeling and behaving.

The Enneagram also helps you to understand and appreciate different personalities and what motivates them. It shows good intentions behind the behavior, even though others do not observe them that way. In addition, it gives suggestions on how to develop high-performing teams that can harness those personality differences in a positive way, instead as seeing the differences as a problem. The Enneagram also teaches us what to consider when collaborating with different enneagram types, recognizing our typical patterns of interaction, conflict, leadership, team work etc.

Enneagram is a tool that can be used in separate sessions or integrate it as a part of other development processes, combining great fun and deep insights at the same time!
