Managing Self and Others by Enneagram

Led by Ludmila Mládková, University of Economics Prague

In the unstable and highly competitive environment which many organizations now exist there is a call for managerial tools that support development, sharing and exploitation of knowledge. Enneagram, is a system of evaluation and work with a human personality, which perfectly serves this purpose.

Enneagram enables us to understand an individual, their motivation and their behaviour, to allow us to predict and influence it. It helps to find right placement and tailor the future development of an individual in with their abilities.

Unlike other personality classification systems, Enneagram is dynamic. It works with nine personality types, three subtypes and nine levels of personal development. It also recognises interrelations between an individual’s personality and their own life situation. In our knowledge intensive environment, Enneagram provides tools for the personal development of employees, the management of knowledge workers; it helps to improve communication and builds trust, shares knowledge and builds successful teams.

You will learn

  • What is Enneagram? How can it be used?
  • How does Enneagram work? – The types of personalities and other aspects of the system.
  • The nine types of personalities – strengths and weaknesses of individual types, their impact on behaviour, their management, personal development and communication.
  • How to use Enneagram in everyday life and in business.

Afternoon Workshops

14:00-17:00

Assessment  of  Knowledge Risk and its Mitigation

Led by Rongbin W.B. Lee and Haley W.C. Tsang, Knowledge Management and Innovation Research Centre (KMIRC)

Most Knowledge Management (KM) programs place an emphasis on the importance of capturing, retaining and sharing organizational knowledge among its stakeholders. As the beneficial effect of these processes often cannot be felt immediately, there can be a lack of urgency to implement knowledge management initiatives from the senior management. To combat this issue, another approach is the assessment of knowledge risks and its effect on the daily operation of a company.  Knowledge risk refers to the potential threats caused by knowledge when it is not managed properly. For example, leakage of trade secrets to outsiders and loss of critical knowledge because of system security problems or employee turnover may negatively affect the reputation or even the competitiveness of a company.

A tool has been developed by the Knowledge Management and Innovation Research Centre (KMIRC) at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University to assess the knowledge risk factors of companies. This tool works with two connected assessments. This workshop will explain the use and purpose of this tool and also allow participants to participate in an assessment.

  • Introduction on the knowledge risk assessment tools.
  • Self-evaluation of knowledge risks by the workshop participants
  • Briefing on case studies  conducted, followed by open discussion on methods to prevent or reduce knowledge risks for business sustainability
