In this episode of the Lead with the Enneagram, we dive deep into the world of setbacks with the incredible journalist and writer, Amy Shoenthal. As we're well into the new year, many of us find that our initial excitement for our goals has faded, and life's unexpected challenges have thrown us off course. Setbacks are a natural part of life, especially for those of us striving to do epic things in the world.

Amy, a writer for Forbes magazine and Harvard Business Review, brings her expertise and insights to the table, discussing her new book, "The Setback Cycle." This book is a timely resource for anyone looking to turn the less desirable parts of life into opportunities for growth and action.

We explore the four phases of the setback cycle: establish, embrace, explore, and emerge. Amy shares her personal journey through these phases, including her experiences with workplace challenges after maternity leave and how she redirected her ambition into a successful freelance writing career.

The conversation also touches on the Enneagram, particularly focusing on how understanding our Enneagram type can help us navigate setbacks. As an Enneagram 2, Amy discusses the struggle of asking for help and the importance of acknowledging one's own needs.

Listeners will find this episode to be a valuable tool for understanding setbacks and learning how to move through them with grace, class, and clarity. It's an episode you'll want to keep on speed dial, offering insights that are applicable both personally and professionally.

Remember, setbacks are not the end of the story; they can be the beginning of something magical. So let's embrace the messy middle, find our green light, and make the impact we desire in the world.
