One of the biggest challenges for project managers is understanding what motivates their team members.
Likely, project managers have a good idea of what motivates themselves, and they may project their own motivation onto others. That strategy may or may not work. Some individuals may have completely different motivations, and the manager may struggle to understand those differences.
The Enneagram is a tool that describes nine distinct personality styles, each with a distinct - and distinctly different - motivation. By knowing the Enneagram style of team members, and by understanding each person’s intrinsic motivation, a project leader can individually motivate team members to complete assignments.
About the Instructor:
As a systems thinker, Matt Schlegel has always been fascinated by team dynamics and what makes some teams successful while others fail.
Matt's degrees in general engineering from Harvey Mudd College and electrical engineering from the University of California San Diego provided formal training in problem solving, especially in solving technical and engineering problems. As he worked on bigger projects, Matt realized that successful problem solving was contingent more on effective teamwork than technical prowess.
Matt began studying the Enneagram in 2002 and started applying it in corporate settings in 2003. In 2004, he began developing the tools that Schlegel Consulting (www.evolutionaryteams.com) now uses to optimize team-based problem solving for innovative companies. His realization that the Enneagram can be applied to the analysis of teams as well as individuals led to the tools and strategies for work-team effectiveness described in his book, Teamwork 9.0.

About Teamwork 9.0—Successful Workgroup Problem Solving Using the Enneagram
Teamwork 9.0 cracks the code for extraordinary team effectiveness. In this book, Matt Schlegel shows you how to use the Enneagram as a basis for team analysis and team-based problem solving. This thought-provoking text uses neuroscience and real-world case studies to illustrate how the nine Enneagram dynamics fit together like pieces of a puzzle to optimize your team for success. In Teamwork 9.0, you will learn about the unique strengths that each Enneagram type brings to problem solving as well as each type’s underlying motivations, leadership characteristics, and other key traits. All of these qualities contribute to successful problem solving, and the Enneagram provides the framework for understanding when, why, and how to apply each personality dynamic. Struggling teams will appreciate the diagnostic tools and suggestions for adjustments, and high-performing teams will learn how to maintain and replicate their success as teams and projects change. Teamwork 9.0 explains how to put the right people on the right projects at the right time.
