  1. 1. How, what do you mean? • Unlike HARDSKILLSwhich are about a person's skill set and ability to perform a certain type of task or activity • SOFTSKILLS are interpersonal skills that characterize a person's relationships with other people. In the workplace, soft skills are considered a complement to hard skills “It's often said that hard skills will get you an interview but you need soft skills to get (and keep) the job” 1
  2. 2. Professional Development SOFT SKILLS • Ever wondered why some people can really ‘annoy you’ and why you seem to ‘get along really well’ with others? • There is good explanation for these differences! • And much we can do as a Team to learn more about… • WHAT MAKES US TICK? • ONCE we do that, we can use this knowledge for our own career advancement and the betterment of SIPU and Deakin more broadly. 2 Me My TEAM SIPU
  3. 3. What is Enneagram? • Enneagram is a condensation of universal wisdom, common- sense philosophy and psychology which provides extraordinary insights into human behaviour, particularly our own. • The primary goal and purpose of the Enneagram is self knowledge; its ancillary benefit is that it allows us to understand the behaviour of others, and with that understanding, to be more accepting and compassionate. 3
  4. 4. Case Study – My experience • In 2006, I attended Enneagram training as a member of the Planning branch • 15 staff attended the training • Over 2 days • Away from the office location • The team before attending training? - Could be described as ‘Change Fatigued’ - Some staff moving into Planning as a result of Restructure - Some staff moving out of Planning into other Units - Some staff moving out of Planning with a helping hand! - The unit was transitioning to a new place…… 4
  5. 5. My experience cont…… • Working through the 9 Enneagram types was enlightening and at times confronting • By the end of the day, I’d identified ‘MY TYPE’ • Gaining insights about what drove me and my thinking! • And even more intriguing, the insights about my work colleagues! 5
  6. 6. Life after Enneagram training How did it help? • Team members developed a greater mutual respect, built on each others’ strengths, and were more tolerant of individual differences • Knowing how I was different from others around me enhanced working relationships, enabling a more productive working environment • These insights enabled me to work towards controlling dysfunctional behaviours and developing strengths 6
