This training guides participants through the Awareness to Action™ (A2A) process that is commonly used in corporate and business environments. A2A consists of a practical three-step process that guides participants from initial insights regarding their personality into practical, everyday applications to accelerate their performance and leadership. Among the organizations and businesses that have benefited from the Enneagram are Walt Disney, Hewlett Packard, Sony, Johnson & Johnson, the Federal Reserve Bank, and even the CIA.

Other personality systems, such as Meyers-Briggs, DISC, Predictive Index, are helpful, however they tend to be impractical and cumbersome in their application. These systems focus primarily on surface-level personality traits, therefore failing to address the core motivations and dynamics of one’s personality type which are absolutely critical to understand in order to create sustainable organizational change.

The Enneagram is also completely unique in that it provides an actual roadmap to successfully navigate the change process, including making positive shifts in one’s behavior, thoughts and belief system. Participants not only have increased awareness of their strengths and weaknesses but are shown practical, hands-on tools that can dramatically boost their work performance, communication and leadership.



The Enneagram is perhaps the most effective training approach in ensuring organizational change and a business’s success. In an international benchmark report (The Enneagram In Business Network, 2011), the top three applications of the Enneagram were identified by businesses as important to their success: Communication, Leadership and Team Building. All trainings are facilitated by Brad Kerschensteiner who combines his unique skill set as a licensed psychotherapist, workshop facilitator, and business owner to his work as an Enneagram trainer for businesses (for full Bio, click About Us/The Team).
