Misunderstood as The Challenger with Libby Cole
Libby Cole, owner of Expand Coaching and Consulting and an Enneagram 8w7, joins me on the podcast to talk about her experience as The Challenger personality type. She has learned through her life and business experience that Challengers who are women are often times the most misunderstood Enneagram type. Libby wants to set the record straight that female 8s can be soft, influential, and great leaders all at the same time! I couldn’t agree more that she shows up with empathy, sensitivity, and a lot of fire for her mission in life. Libby’s background professionally was mostly higher education before taking the leap to become a business owner and empowering herself to lead others through Enneagram coaching. Libby believes that misunderstanding and miscommunication is what holds people back in relationships. In her words, “When people begin to learn more about themselves, they can also be more understanding of others. This is a beautiful outcome of learning the Enneagram, the awareness that there are 8 other ways of approaching something. It can also give you permission to step into your true, authentic self without apology.” If her message resonates with you today, please connect with her on Instagram @enneagramtoexpand or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org To connect with me about in home personal training, click fitlifechampions.com now to book a complimentary consultation to learn more about your top three goals in fitness and wellness!

Anger and The Challenger
On today's episode, I discuss how the challenger personality type becomes solidified within us and often times, that is as a result of an instance of trauma or repeated trauma in our formative years. I alert you with a heads up at the time during the episode where you may want to fast forward. We will dive deep into the enneagram, attachment styles, and self-leadership to learn more about what our anger is trying to teach us throughout the episode and it will be confronting, I promise. The challenger personality type on the Enneagram reacts first with anger, as do the 9 and the 1, as they are part of the body feeling triad. Over the past few years, it has been part of my journey to get in touch with that anger to understand more clearly what is lying beneath it. I also answer our audience members' questions of how to recognize and display a clean version of our anger so that we can form deeper and more intimate relationships without blowing our lids!

An Embodiment Practice and The Challenger
On today's episode, I will share what I've learned through my own embodiment practices and how they relate to The Enneagram, attachment styles, and self-leadership. As a challenger on the Enneagram, I tend to lean towards more intense activities that teach me how to embody strength, confidence, humility, and direction in my life. If you say someone embodies patience, you may see them pausing before they respond to you in ALL situations, no matter their emotional state. If you say that someone is present in the moment, you may see them joking or laughing with the group or supporting one person off to the side, speaking softly as they comfort them through a difficult time. If you say that someone is the embodiment of a quality, you may mean that that is their most noticeable characteristic or the basis of all they do.

Empathy and The Challenger
On today's episode, I will walk you through how I learned that I needed to show more empathy for others and the journey I've been on since. What is empathy? There are three types of empathy: cognitive, emotional, and when you combine the two... compassionate. It took a series of tough life experiences to show me that I could communicate with empathy in a more compassionate way. In today's episode, I dig deeper into empathy with a Maya Angelou quote to exemplify this, "Do the best you can until you know better. Once you know better, do better."

Creating a Safe Space in a Relationship with Morgan Wade, type 2
On this week’s episode of the podcast, Morgan Wade and I discussed how the body holds onto memories in “trauma knots”. Morgan, a Focalizing Practitioner, believes that healing is a return to wholeness for us all. We ask the question, “What is change?” and want to remind you that when we change, our relationship dynamics change as well. My biggest takeaway from our conversation is that “whatever is coming up within us, is coming up for us”. To me, that means that the only way out is through the emotions and experiences that caused the hurt. Our conversation led us into a story from my parenting experience where my daughter Madison told me “Don’t ever shake a baby!” That's good advice. Morgan and I had the opportunity to discuss how attachments with our caregivers form in childhood to inform our adult relationships. We close out the episode with some scenarios where a parent can create a safe space for their child to form a secure attachment!

4 Things that Break Trust in Your Relationship
On this week's episode of the podcast, I share the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse in your relationship when you are having conflict with your partner. They are defensiveness, stonewalling, criticism, and contempt. If you've ever been in a long term relationship, you know you will come across some kind of conflict with your partner.

How Your Enneagram and Attachment Style Impacts Relationships with Leanna and Jared
Joining me this week on the podcast are Leanna, type 7, and Jared, type 2, from the Hello and Goodbye Podcast. We share the passion for what the Enneagram, attachment theory, and consciousness can bring to relationships.

Today’s episode is one of my favorites so far because I get the chance to speak with two REAL people sharing their lives on their podcast.

How to Become Exclusive when Dating in 2020
I'm not new to the singles scene. For three years, I have been digging deep and peeling back the layers of my relationship story while surrounding myself with as many positive and uplifting people I possibly could through the podcast. If I were to have someone tell me point blank, "How to become exclusive" with someone I liked, I would have laughed out loud. It sounds so simple. You like someone, you tell them so and you're exclusive, right? Almost. Not quite. Consider that everyone has a breakup story the found transformational at one point in their life. That's me. Broken and at a turning point in my life three years ago so I set out on a personal mission to uncover how my past traumas and experiences impact my relationships today. And on today's episode, I share with you three things to be mindful of when becoming exclusive with someone (casually, spoken for, exclusive, or any level or relationship) while dating in the modern world; ie. texting, online dating, and ghosting for starters. Those three steps are: 1. Be clear about what you want 2. Be clear about what you don't want 3. What does healthy communication look like to you?

Where Heart Break Can Lead You with Sierra Melcher, type 5
On today’s episode, I am joined by Sierra Melcher all the way from Medellin, Columbia. She believes that when people are held back in their relationships, it is because they are not quite sure who they are because they spend so much time trying to be the “right” kind of self or desirable. During our conversation, Sierra and I compare travel and dating as a metaphor that I think you will enjoy! “It isn’t about the destination so much as it is about the journey together.” Sierra’s mission is to support women to discover and deepen the relationship with themselves so that she can know what she wants and have the courage to pursue it. She calls it attuning to the “inner author-ity” to really be the author of her own life. As we talked during our interview, Sierra described love as, “Deeply investing in your own and someone else’s spiritual growth” and I truly enjoyed that perspective. Sierra hosts weekly women’s circles as well as a weekly podcast called Integral Women Soundbites, so if her message resonates with you today, please connect with her via her website – integral-women.com on Instagram – integralwomenmentoring or on Facebook – IntegralWomenHeartSisters If you have a question for Dave regarding your own relationship, please connect with him via email at firstname.lastname@example.org and he will reach out as soon as possible!

How do Attachment Styles Show Up in a Quarantine with Shawntres Parks, type 2
On today's episode, we welcome back Shawntres Parks from Couples Learn. We went live on Facebook recently to follow up on our previous episode, Your Needs or You're Needy, which aired a couple months ago! Since shelter in place orders occurred in LA first, we wanted to go deeper into attachment styles and their responses to the stress of the Coronavirus and quarantining with a partner! When our worlds were turned upside down about a month ago and we were encouraged to shelter in place, new couples faced an immediate need to make a choice in their relationship: shelter in place together or take the isolation route. This could place new and existing couples without a strong foundation to their relationship under the microscope to show where the weak points live. Tune in to the full interview and if her message resonates with you, connect with Shawntres at coupleslearn.com or on Instagram @sparks_therapist If you're looking for more support in your quarantine life, join our community group calls with Dave each Tuesday at 7 PM MST by clicking here now!

Why Men Need a Purpose with Bryan Reeves, type 1
Like me, Bryan Reeves grew up surrounded by women; mothers, sisters, and friends. So naturally you would assume we would be in tune with what they want and how to make a relationship work with them. That couldn't be further from the truth as we have both moved on from the typical Nice Guy behaviors we learned would please our mothers and eventually our romantic partners. On this week's podcast, Bryan Reeve, life and love coach from Los Angeles, CA, joins me to talk about the three stages of a relationship and how we bounce back and forth between codependency and independence. The beauty within a committed and lasting relationship is putting aside all of our bulls$!t and getting curious about our partner's needs, wants, and uniqueness. Lastly, we discuss how having female friends holds us back from truly connecting deeply with our intimate or romantic partner.

Are You Sharing Your Needs or Being Needy with Shawntres Parks, type 2
Are you being needy? Or just sharing your needs in a relationship? Last fall, I was asked a very big question and at that time, I didn’t know the answer to. The question was, “What do you need?” At the time, that question was so much harder for me to answer than it is today after many hours of soul searching and diving into myself to find that answer. For myself and not anyone else. You can read all about it in the recent blog post The Missing Pieces! That reflection that led to me taking complete ownership and inspired this week’s podcast episode with Shawntres Parks, from Couples Learn in Los Angele
