Susan Drumm Keynote Speaker: Leadership Growth Through the Enneagram

Enlightened Leadership Through the Enneagram

Create Diversity of Thought and Supercharge Performance

Read the full description

The modern workplace has evolved in ways that we would have never thought possible just a few years ago. The revolution in video conferencing has impacted and shifted the dynamics of interpersonal relationships and teams – not all of it for the better. Creating team cohesion has never been a more critical factor for leaders who want to get the best out of their people and their business results.

For over 20 years, Susan has been at the forefront of applying the Enneagram model to leadership to help executives create high performing teams through diversity of thought.

In this timely keynote, Susan will empower the audience with actionable takeaways, fueled by her Enneagram Applied system. Participants will hear case studies and examples of how teams made up of “personality groupthink” flatline, while those empowered by diverse perspectives thrive.

Susan will share why this tool is far more powerful than traditional tools such as DISC and MBTI for leadership growth —and how it’s particularly impactful for you in unlocking team performance.
