EP 50: Enneagram 1 with Cameron Earlywine

Perfection is not attainable. @CameronBlake_93 @KirbyOGreen #SharpenPodcast

Today we are welcoming Cameron Earlywin a type one on the enneagram scale. He discusses how type ones think, what kind of environments they strive in and how following the rules helps ones thrive and be at ease.  As a teacher to 8th through 12th graders, he touches on how being a one affects how he teaches and when its a positive and when he needs to reign in some of his tendencies.

Cameron believes that the enneagram can push us towards a more healthy state, and in today’s conversation we dive into how it can benefit us to understand our tendencies.  He also touches on why when we are not aware of the way we act, we can put expectations on others that are not fair to them. We also discuss working together as numbers that don’t often blend well, and how we can help each other grow as individuals through our understanding of one another.
