The Nine Domains Approach
The Nine Domains Approachsm (9D) is a set of surveys and reports, interpretive materials, and specific Interventions and Practices (I&Ps) for understanding and working with teams and groups of all kinds and sizes. The combination of these materials provide precise and practical means to improve the health and functioning of groups and organizations.
The Nine Domains Approachsm is a facilitated method of working with teams which encourages communication, cohesion, and ownership within the group for its health and sustainability. This Approach is applicable for a wide variety of organizations, corporate teams, not-for-profit groups, churches, teaching staffs, and volunteer groups of all kinds.
The 9D Approachsm is different and useful because—
- It allows the administrator to select among four different surveys depending on what kind of information would be most useful for current needs.
- The results of each of the 9D Surveys provide rich and detailed information that form the basis of surprising insights. These insights lead to instructive and liberating conversations and energizing and confident actions.
- With this precise and clear base of information, the 9D Facilitator knows which Domains are working well and which need more attention. The set of 90 Interventions and Practices (I&Ps) that are provided in 9D Training are models for the kind of in-depth guidance that a professional consultant will be able to generate.
The Nine Domains Approachsm is based on the Enneagram personality typology. Don Riso who conceptualized The Nine Domains Approachsm, is respected throughout the world for his work with the Enneagram. With his writing and teaching partner, Russ Hudson, they have discovered many previously unknown aspects of the Enneagram. They are known for conceptual breakthroughs in Enneagram theory that have wide-ranging practical applications. The Riso-Hudson tradition of profound insights, creative thinking, clear writing, and engaging teaching are carried forward by the Nine Domains Group (Monika Adelfang, Barry Coltham, Joni Peddie, and Joyce Stenstrom). Rodger Spiller s a 9D Facilitator able to apply this enneagram related approach in business. For further information see www.ninedomains.com
