Integrating psychology and the Enneagram framework to understand personality profiles in order to bring out the best in individuals in a personal and professional context.

Using the keynote presentation as a launching platform the work Tamryn does with the Enneagram starts at a dynamic team level which explores the ways in which individual personalities contribute and complicate the teams in which they work; and then further expands to working closely with each individual team member in one-on-one personal coaching sessions.

The individual sessions have been helpful for addressing underperformance by team members, helping individuals communicate and operate more effectively with others, enhance leadership styles, and help team leaders make sense of conflictual or strained team dynamics they confront on a daily basis.


Meeting Julia Gillard – former PM of Australia

With her Masters Degree in Counselling Psychology, her Masters Degree in Research by Dissertation, being an Accredited Enneagram Practitioner and a  Psychology lecturer, Tamryn helps clients by developing insight into their teams and those they work with.

You know what works and what doesn’t – but insight through the enneagram teaches you the ‘why’ behind the success and failures. Knowing the ‘why’ allows for better judgement, more accurate and intelligent decision making, and enables you to build effective teams through personalised character development and employment selection.
