    Enneagram 2: The Helpers

    Enneagram 2: The Helpers

    This week on the Behaviorist Podcast, Kimberlee Peifer interviews the lovable Lissa Holland about what it was like realizing she's an enneagram type 2: the Helper. The Helper is the caring, interpersonal type. They are generous, demonstrative, people-pleasing and at lower levels can get possessive. They do intensely enjoy helping others so it makes sense that Lissa works at our public library! Some well-known 2s: Desmond Tutu, Eleanor Roosevelt and Elizabeth Taylor. If you are a 2 or work with one, you'll want to hear this episode.  You can follow Work Wisdom on LinkedIn, Instagram, and Twitter at @workwisdom, and learn more at our website at

    Grieving In The Workplace

    Grieving In The Workplace

    Grief is a universal human experience. Yet workplace culture is often inhospitable to people suffering profound loss. How do we work to bridge this gap? On this extraordinary episode of The Behaviorist, we are truly honored to be joined by Ashely Garcia and Tom Baldridge of the Lancaster Chamber of Commerce. Last year, Ashley went through an unimaginable and sudden loss in her family. She and her supervisor Tom sat down with Kedren to talk truthfully, bravely, and frankly about how her loss was felt and responded to in her workplace. There isn’t much more we can say about this episode except to express our deepest thanks to Ashely for opening her heart so much to us and our listeners, and to Tom for being such a powerful example of what it means to lead with authenticity, vulnerability, and towards human-centered work spaces.

    Authentic Self Communication

    Authentic Self Communication

    What is a cognitive distortion? It’s when your mind convinces you of something that simply isn’t true. Cognitive distortions can manifest in many ways, such as black and white thinking, filtering (only seeing the bad stuff), overgeneralization, blaming, emotional reasoning (“If I feel this way, it must be true.”) catastrophizing, and taking things personally. There is no magic wand to eliminate one of the most powerful scourges in the workplace (people lying to themselves). But fear not! On this week’s podcast, Kedren and Sarah explore the depths and power of Authentic Self Communication. What five concrete tools can you start using today to combat cognitive disorders? And what does all this have to do with Schitt’s Creek? Tune in to find out.
