Personalities @ Work
Our signature program, Personalities@Work, introduces our unique, practical, and pragmatic approach to the Enneagram and uses it as the foundation for helping our clients reach their leadership-development needs. We don’t use the Enneagram to change people into something they are not, we use it to help them rewrite the software of their minds and bring out the best of who they are.
Organizations are, by definition, groups of individuals working together. Sometimes, they are not as “together” either in location or direction. People are complex, and they bring different sets of values and habitual patterns of thought, feeling, and action to their interactions.
In short, they have personalities.
Unsuccessful organizations ignore those differences, assuming people will figure out how to overcome their differences and disconnections.
Successful organizations understand that to effectively influence people, we have to understand what motivates them and adapt our approach accordingly. We have to help people understand each other so we can work toward our common goals as efficiently as possible.
Equipping them to do is the focus of the Personalities@Work program.
Improving collaboration and communication across teams, and bringing out the highest performance in individuals, starts with an understanding of the internal logic of different personality styles. There is no better tool for understanding personality and its impact on our interactions with those we work with, or how to create growth in a way that honors our core values, than the Awareness to Action Enneagram.
The basic program is an overview of the Awareness to Action Enneagram, particularly the three instinctual biases, the nine Ennea-type strategies, and how each influences organizational behavior in positive and negative ways.
From that starting point, we tailor programs to our clients’ needs and goals, providing synchronous, asynchronous, and hybrid virtual programs as well as live, in-person training and consulting.
Topics we can address with the Personalities@Work program include:
Understanding Differences in Organizations
Teambuilding and team-coaching
Collaboration and communication for intact and dispersed teams
Leading in times of change
Bringing Out the Best in Our People

"I had the pleasure of receiving Mario’s coaching as an Executive of a $2b organization. Mario’s assessment process, 360 review and coaching were instrumental for me to unlock additional potential. I, with emphasis, recommend Mario’s firm for those seeking to unlock further potential of their leadership team’s ability to lean forward as well as solve problems within their respective organizations. His ability to reach in and “rewire” those who are excellent performers but are somewhat “hardwired” is truly amazing and the outcomes are equally amazing. Well done Mario!"
– Drew Levine President, Secure Solutions USA
"Mario uses awareness to help leaders develop their own personal action plans while providing consistent feedback and guidance. I have directly seen how Mario’s coaching has helped a number of teams break down barriers and improve communications and efficiency across the organization. I highly recommend Mario as a personal leadership coach and team coach for organizations of any size."
– Kevin Keefe, Senior VP, Broadband Networks at CommScope
“In searching for the right executive coach, I interviewed a number of candidates. Mario was different from the others in that he was able to quickly assess what I needed from a coach. Working together we developed an individualized plan that leveraged my strengths and focused on specific areas of development. The result is that I have enhanced confidence and maturity as a senior leader in my company. Given his background, style, and my personal experience with Mario, I highly recommend him.”
– Ken Manne, Vice President & General Counsel, Nuclear Electric Insurance Limited
