Have you ever noticed how most productivity advice doesn’t work for women?

That’s because you’re not a man who has a spouse at home who takes care of all the things. You’re juggling your business, your career, and your family. It’s a lot, and no wonder why things slip through the cracks despite your best intentions to get it all done.

When you treat everything as an urgent priority, you lose all sense of what truly matters. This podcast is here to help you change all of that. One week at a time.

Unlike other shows about productivity, only The Productivity Shift helps women in charge (in their biz, at work, at home, etc) take back their time and use it to make progress on what matters most to them.

Each week, Elise Enriquez, a productivity dork and certified life coach, guides you to redefine what productivity is to you. You’ll get strategies and insights you can implement right away. Lighten your load and focus on what’s most important so you can create a life and business that is meaningful to you.

    Elise Enriquez, your productivity coach and host of the Productivity Shift podcast, is here to help you navigate the complexities of life and work with a bit of Enneagram wisdom this week.

     

    In case you missed it, we've been on a journey exploring the Enneagram system, focusing on the "above the line" and "below the line" model.

    This model helps us understand our mental and emotional states, guiding us to respond more intentionally in various situations.

     

    Be sure to check out our previous episodes for a fuller picture, especially episode 111, which lays the groundwork for the "above the line" and "below the line" concept.

     

    I'm thrilled to continue our Enneagram series with Lisa Alessi, our resident Enneagram expert, to delve into the head center types today. Lisa brings her wealth of knowledge and insights, making our Enneagram journey both enlightening and practical.

     

    Understanding the Head Center Types

    - Lisa breaks down the head types (Five, Six, and Seven) and their distinctive characteristics.

     

    Type Five - The Observer

     - Deep thinkers who love knowledge and understanding how things work.

     - Great observers but tend to withdraw and struggle with overwhelm and sharing information.

      

    Type Six - The Skeptic

     - Insightful minds focused on trust and anticipating problems.

     - They can be risk-averse or counterphobic, challenging authority at times.

     

    Type Seven - The Enthusiast

     - Life enthusiasts who crave variety, excitement, and new experiences.

     - Initiators with many ideas but struggle with follow-through and prioritization.

     

    Elise and Lisa share personal anecdotes and practical tips for each type, highlighting the nuances of Enneagram understanding in real life.

    They emphasize the importance of self-awareness, balancing mental and emotional responses, and intentional decision-making based on Enneagram insights.

    ==========================

    Episode 111: Where are you? - Embracing Change and Cultivating Growth with Lisa Alessi

     

    Introduction:

    This episode kicks off a 4-episode series with Leadership Coach and Consultant Lisa Alessi where we'll explore a developmental concept called "Above the Line and Below the Line" and how this concept applies to the 9 Enneagram types.

     

    Main Discussion Points:


    Above the Line vs. Below the Line: Elise and Lisa delve into the distinction between operating above the line, where productivity and creativity thrive, and operating below the line, where reactions are driven by stress and triggers.
    Navigating Emotional Responses: The conversation explores how emotions like anger and joy can manifest both above and below the line, highlighting the importance of emotional agility and mindfulness in choosing constructive responses.
    Practical Tools for Resilience: Lisa shares practical tools for recognizing and navigating shifts between above and below the line states, including pausing, breathing, and getting curious about your emotions and reactions.
    The Role of the Enneagram: While the episode introduces the Enneagram, further exploration is teased for subsequent episodes, where each Enneagram type's tendencies above and below the line will be discussed in detail.

     

    We'll all be above the line or below the line every day. The goal isn't to be above the line all the time, the goal is to recognize when you are above the line, take a breath and reset to get yourself above the line again.

     

    Stay tuned over the next 3 episodes to explore what each enneagram type looks like above the line and below the line.
