I first met my guest Erin Nicole approximately four years ago, but we didn’t have an opportunity to get to know each other until we joined the same mastermind. Erin doesn’t have much background in the Enneagram, so I thought it would be fun to bring her on the show for another live Enneagram typing session—your favorite!
Erin Nicole Porter is a Spiritual Business Coach, Master Practitioner & Trainer of NLP, Breathwork Facilitator, Somatic Experiencing Practitioner in Training, Adult Attachment Repair Model Therapist, and Host of the Energetics of Business Podcast.
Although she is an Enneagram type 5, Erin recognized that she needed to put all her learning into the world; otherwise, the knowledge was pointless. This essential piece of insight helped me to determine Erin is a type 5 with a one-to-one subtype offering her the ability to tap into the emotional vulnerability that other type 5s don’t have.
On this episode of The Leadership Formula, Erin shares how she grew up on a farm in Ohio with midwestern energy in a blended family where she always protected her mother. This upbringing helped develop her one-to-one nature.
Erin shares her big life story around burnout and the effect that has had on her health. We explore how burnout comes when she’s leaning into her Enneagram stress number, the 7—with 8 million tabs open at once.
Listen in to understand what characterizes a one-to-one Enneagram 5 like Erin as we explore some ways she can change the way she expresses herself using her 4 wing. We’ll also look at how she can use her 6 wing to implement all her Enneagram 5 information gathering and pour it out through her life’s work to change more lives.
