    79. Building Better Relationships at Work Using DiSC with Nancy Marmolejo | Type 7 [Personality Assessments Series]

    79. Building Better Relationships at Work Using DiSC with Nancy Marmolejo | Type 7 [Personality Assessments Series]

    Would you describe your preferred working style as dominating, influencing, steady, or conscientious? Maybe a blend of two?

    The DiSC assessment can compliment what you've learned about yourself through the Enneagram by sharing both validating insights and and new perspectives about your preferences and tendencies. Like the Enneagram, it should be used for dialogue, not a diagnosis.

    To help us jumpstart that conversation and be able to use and apply the DiSC to our own personal growth journey and relationships at work, we have DiSC certified, leadership trainer, and owner of Talent and Genius, Nancy Marmolejo on the show today.

    Inside Part 4 of our Personality Assessment Series, you'll learn about what DiSC is and the 4 main styles within the framework: 

    The D (Dominance) Style prioritizes getting immediate results, taking action, challenging themselves and others and is motivated by power and authority, competition, winning, and success (sound familiar Type 8s and 3s? :) )

    The i (Influence) Style prioritizes expressing enthusiasm, taking action, encouraging collaboration and is motivated by social recognition, group activities, and friendly relationships (Type 7 anyone?))

    The S (Steadiness) Style prioritizes giving support, maintaining stability, enjoying collaboration and is motivated by stable environments, sincere appreciation, cooperation, and opportunities to help (sensing some Type 2, 6, and 9 - What do you think?)

    The C (Conscientiousness) Style prioritizes ensuring accuracy, maintaining stability, challenging assumptions and is motivated by opportunities to use expertise or gain knowledge and attention to quality (hearing some Type 1 and event Type 5 in there?).

    The only Enneagram type that I didn't see a direct DiSC Style correlation with was the Type 4 (which you probably appreciate :)), but what do you think? Where do you see this energy show up on the DiSC?

    And more importantly, where do you see yourself? How does that overlap (or not!) with your Enneagram type?

    77. What the Kolbe Tells You About How to Grow a Business Your Way with Elizabeth Cook, Type 6 [Personality Assessments Series]

    77. What the Kolbe Tells You About How to Grow a Business Your Way with Elizabeth Cook, Type 6 [Personality Assessments Series]

    When it comes to data and information, are you a bottom line person who prefers a quick answer or do you like to get (and share) all the details?
    To accomplish a goal and get through a project, do you prefer a lot of structure and processes or do you more often find yourself winging it along the way and more flexible in your approach?
    Do you have a lot of ideas that you jump into and experiment with or are you more deliberate, protecting what's already working and doing your best to remove uncertainty? 


    Just like with the Enneagram, there are no wrong answers. This is information that the Kolbe gives us understand about ourselves to help know our natural gifts and preferences for solving challenges and taking action. 


    Inside this interview with Elizabeth Cook, Certified Kolbe Consultant she walks us through the 4 areas of our work style we can gain a deeper understanding of:  


    1) Fact Finder - how you gather and share information
    2) Follow Thru - you best way of organizing; how much structure and organization you need
    3) Quick Start - your method for dealing with risk and uncertainty 
    4) Implementer (Demonstrator) - all about your deal with physical space and tangible items 


    You'll also hear about: 
    How is it different from the EnneagramHow to use the information you learn about yourself from Kolbe and Enneagram togetherWhat the Kolbe can tell an entrepreneur about how they can most naturally grow their business How a business partnership or team can use the Kolbe to better understand how each works bestMy own Kolbe results that Elizabeth helped me interpret Life and leading as a Type 6 What about the Type One also really resonates with Elizabethand stay tuned for the end to hear how she defines her best life - it's so good!

    76. Getting to Know Yourself Better Using 360 Reviews, Tara Nesser, Type 7 [Personality Assessments for Work Series]

    76. Getting to Know Yourself Better Using 360 Reviews, Tara Nesser, Type 7 [Personality Assessments for Work Series]

    Experts tell us that our unconscious mind makes a majority of our decisions. Which means, most of the time, we're cruising through life on autopilot.

    This isn't necessarily a bad thing. 

    It would be impossible to be constantly "awake" to every thought, feeling, and behavior. We absolutely need autopilot turned on. The problem happens when our autopilot never gets a tune up. 

    Left unchecked, these blind spots, or unconscious biases, can end up steering your life, possibly in a direction you don't want to be going in.

    Identifying these blind spots is the first step to course correcting, but doing it on your can be difficult - hence the name - "blind spot." :) So, what do you do then?

    Getting feedback from others can be tremendously helpful in uncovering where you might be running on autopilot in a way that's not serving you, and also what strengths you have you may not realize you have.

    Our guide today for learning more about how to get feedback from trusted sources and conduct a productive 360 Review (and how absolutely not to do one), is Level Up Talent CEO and Founder, Tara Nesser. 

    Inside this interview with Tara you'll learn so much about being a new or emerging leader including: 
    common challenges new leaders face and how to navigate around them the importance of self-awareness as a growing leader why she focuses on both strategy and  mindset in her leadership coaching what life and leading is like with the Type 7 energy 
    Tune in to this first episode in the Personality Assessments at Work Series and let Tara know what you're taking away with you!

    75. Leading From Where You Are with Fan Experience Consultant and Career Coach, Jahaan Blake, Type 2

    75. Leading From Where You Are with Fan Experience Consultant and Career Coach, Jahaan Blake, Type 2

    When you hear the word leader what comes to mind? 

    Is it a person in a power suit leading from the front of a room? 

    Maybe someone leading a big team, inside a big corporation? 

    Leading as an owner of a business? 

    Leading a large community online or from a big stage?

    I'm going to guess, if you're like a lot of people, the initial image wasn't of yourself. 

    Maybe because you don't have the title or a team yet, or you don't own a business, or because you don't have "that many" people in your community yet. Or maybe people you just don't feel like you have the personality for it. 

    Whatever the reason you may not feel like a leader (yet!), inside today's episode you'll learn how to start operating with a leader mentality and leading from wherever you are this minute. 

    Our guest today is Jahaan Blake - fan experience consultant in the sport and entertainment industry, career coach to high-achieving women wanting to land leadership positions in that industry, and host of the Game of Her Own podcast. 

    Listen in to hear about:
    the 4 traits of a successful leaderhow to start leading from where you areleading as an introvert and Jahaan's personal experience leading as an Enneagram Type 2Connect with Jahaan and learn more about how to work with her:

Elizabeth Cook Consulting ,

Great variety of topics and biz application

I have used the Enneagram as a personal development tool for years, so I was delighted to see how Sarah brings it to so many business applications. Her style keeps the conversation light and fun, which could be tricky when you are talking about people’s core motivations and fears. Really excited for her new series on Enneagram and Leadership!
