TLS #106: How The Enneagram Can help You Grow & Improve Relationships with Leigh Kramer

 

TheLivelyShowWithLeighKramer

Happy almost Thanksgiving! Today we’re bringing The Lively Show to you a day early so that you can enjoy the show while you may be travelling to visit family and/or friends this holiday weekend!

Today’s episode with enneagram coach, Leigh Kramer, is designed to help you to understand yourself and your family members in a greater way. Which will hopefully provide a more peaceful holiday (if family dynamics can be challenging), or simply provide fun table conversation.  

The enneagram is a personality typing system with nine different types. By understanding our enneagram type and the types of those we care about, we can identify our healthy motivations – and sometimes not-so-healthy motivations – so that we can relate to others from the healthiest place within ourselves.

This episode is perfect for anyone who is interested in learning more about the enneagram, loves learning about new personality typing systems, or who wants to learn how to increase the quality of their motivations.

TheLivelyShowwithTalBen-Shahar

Today’s episode of The Lively Show is a huge honor for me to share with you.

I’m talking with author and lecturer, Tal Ben-Shahar. Tal taught two of the largest Harvard classes in the history of the school, and I was a lucky student of his Positive Psychology class — tuning in “un-officially” during my time at The University of Michigan.

His work has made a huge impact on my life and I am pumped to get to share him with you today on TLS(!!!).

In the show we cover a wide range of topics including: positive psychology, the origins of “self help,” the importance of diversifying our self-worth, perfect vs. optimal, and how to effectively implement habits that will boost our happiness.

This episode is perfect for anyone who geeks out on the topic of personal development or wants to get some easy takeaways to start improving their life one optimal step at a time.
