Episode Note

We spend a lot of time working on our business that we forget to work on the most important aspect of it - ourselves. Josh Lavine joins us on today's podcast to discuss the Enneagram, a valuable system for holistic inner development. We discover different Enneagram types, their specific vulnerabilities and defense mechanisms, and how you can use this information to not only gain clarity about yourself but to also communicate and connect with other people better.

3:22 - Leaders who are the most committed to the success of their business are also the most committed to gaining clarity about who they are on the inside.

10:21 - The Enneagram and its role in Inner Work

20:17 - When you push hard, people get defensive. When you listen and ask questions, you can influence other people better.

34:29 - How the Enneagram decodes our ability to interact with people who aren't exactly like us.

41:27 - Deep conversations don't necessarily arise out of social situations. You have to intentionally seek or start deep conversations.
