Joshua Dubois on Leading with Self-Awareness and Empathy (Enneagram 8)
Enneagram Eights are charismatic individuals who lead through strength, competence, stability, and control. When self-aware, they learn to balance their intensity with a strategic approach and bring community leaders together to execute big changes.
One of our country’s top voices on community partnerships, Joshua Dubois, joins me in a discussion about the Enneagram and how it has made his team more empathetic and more human with one another.
Alli Worthington on Standing Strong as an Enneagram 7 [S04-018]
With all the craziness of 2020, it’s important to remember that life is full of struggles and, if we let them, our negative thoughts can take over. But, with a little self-awareness, we can learn to quiet those thoughts and manage the uncertainty and self-doubt that arises in difficult times.
Today, author, business coach, and Enneagram 7, Alli Worthington and I talk about managing your inner critic, overcoming adversity, and moving forward when things are tough.

Listen in as we cover:
• Why 3s and 8s often get mistyped as each other
• Whether your personality is hard-wired or driven by the environment
• The importance of knowing your subtype
