EP 48: Enneagram 6 and 8 with Janette Barnard

You pull different insights out of each person’s perspective. @JanetteJoyB @KirbyOGreen #SharpenPodcast

Today we are welcoming Janette Barnard as we continue our enneagram series. Janette does not quite fit in the box as she has one foot in the eight box, and one in the six box.  She explains how she functions as both and why she has the behaviors that she has. She also talks about what it’s like reading through the enneagram and not having a number that jumps out at you and how to handle that.

Janette is vice president of marketing and sales for the company DecisionNext.  She talks about how understanding the enneagram helps us both in business as well as in our personal life.  How it enables us to really dive into the why and the reasons for why we do what we do. Her perspective is straightforward and I’m excited to dive into this week’s enneagram number with Janette.
