Choosing a business partner or hiring an employee, you should be guided not only by their professional characteristics.

The vision of the enneatype is an instant understanding of how your partner thinks. And the correct application and combination of ways of thinking in business processes is the key to success.

The definition of the type and level of thinking of the person will give you an understanding of exactly how he will behave. And also how much he is capable of development. Thanks to the knowledge of the system of enneatypes these predictions will be jewelry accurate. Entering with this person into the business process, you can expect that he will act exactly as you foresaw.

For example, you are the project manager and you need to complete the task in a short time. Knowing about the enneatypes and their inherent ways of thinking, you can easily form an effective team.
