When you walk into a room do you emanate confidence and create a magnetic pull for people to want to meet you? Your presence is the first thing people notice when they meet you – and that experience is either pulling people in or silently repelling them. My guest Kim Seltzer shows entrepreneurs and business leaders how to ramp up that first impression and transform your presence into a brand attraction magnet!

Hiding out behind your computer isn’t going to cut if you want to increase your success. Wearing five layers of black isn’t going to do the trick either. But you can discover simple ways to package yourself so you boost your confidence and feel like a million bucks.

On episode 113 of Amplify Your Success Podcast, Kim Seltzer joins me to reveal her simple techniques for creating more power in your presence.

Do you ever wonder why you just don’t fit in with the popular people around you? Or get frustrated with how other’s handle situations? Maybe you wish you had a crystal ball that would give you clues to the important people in your life that you just don’t connect well with.

The Enneagram tool has become my crystal ball. Instead of feeling frustrated with people who don’t share my approach, I now have empathy and tools to navigate our differences.

My friend Ben Saltzman had also been curious for many years on why people do what they do – and through the Enneagram discovered a tool that unlocked Spiritual Liberation and Business Success. Ben joins me on episode 109 of Amplify Your Success Podcast. We get raw and vulnerable about our own styles and how using the Enneagram Profile has transformed our relationships.

 

Key Takeaways

  • What the Enneagram is and how it can profoundly transform your relationships, your success and your leadership impact.
  • How knowing your Enneagram Style helps you navigate tricky relationships, deepen connection and build trust with your ideal clients.
  • Ben explains the nine Enneagram styles (you’ll probably see yourself in more than one style!)
  • I share how learning about my Enneagram style helped me radically shift tension and stress in a high-powered women’s group I lead.
  • Ben reveals how being a Type Seven (which is a common type for entrepreneurs and creatives) shows up – and how he’s grown using this information.
  • Ben and I discuss how to use tools like the Enneagram Profile to become better in business and as a leader.
