Presentation: Powerful Tool for Leading Virtual Teams
Leading a team is challenging enough in normal times. In these extraordinary times we need better tools to maintain team effectiveness and productivity. The Enneagram is a powerful tool that helps leaders understand core motivations and needs of teammates—information that you can use to tailor your conversations with your team to keep them progressing even when working virtually.
Speaker Bio: Matt Schlegel, Schlegel Consulting
As a systems thinker, Matt Schlegel has always been fascinated by team dynamics and what makes some teams successful while others fail. His 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. He 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 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.
