Mario Sikora

Mario Sikora is founder and CEO of Awareness to Action International and an executive coach with over two decades of experience advising leaders across the globe. Since 1997 he has worked with executives in numerous multinational corporations, including Motorola, TE Connectivity, Dow Chemicals, Panasonic, Arris Inc., Rovi Corp., Pfizer, Siemens, Celgene, Technicolor, G4S, and Johnson & Johnson.

Mario founded Awareness to Action International in the early 2000s as a way to bring together the most useful insights from cognitive psychology, personality studies, critical-thinking and decision-making methodologies, and the fundamentals of management and leadership. His work interweaves these insights in a coherent and systematic way to enable ATAI’s clients to develop new levels of awareness about themselves and other people, and to translate that awareness into bold action.

Mario is a pioneer in the theory and application of the Enneagram model of personality, especially as it relates to business and other practical applications. He brings a clarity and simplicity to the system that makes it easy to learn and implement in the real world. In particular, his innovations related to the three instinctual biases have revolutionized the field of Enneagram studies.

In addition to his work with corporate clients, Mario is an internationally recognized speaker and author. He is co-author of the ground-breaking “Awareness to Action: The Enneagram, Emotional Intelligence, and Change,” and author of numerous other books. His writings have been translated into Italian, Spanish, French, Turkish, Portuguese, Arabic, Russian, Korean, and Danish.

Mario lives outside of Philadelphia with his wife and four sons.
