Countless frameworks exist and even overlap one another to help us gain self-awareness and uncover why we work the way we do. Today we’re exploring yet another way to use self-awareness as a planning and productivity tool to help you get organized and avoid burnout. This week, episode 187 of the Positively Living Podcast is about how to figure out your planning style!

Kylie Ota, is a NLP-certified life coach and business strategist specializing in burnout recovery for high-achieving female entrepreneurs. With a background in Army Behavioral Science and oil + gas management, Kylie helps entrepreneurs find their business personality type and create a balanced life and successful business without compromising their well-being or relationships.

In this episode of the Positively Living Podcast, Kylie Ota shares how understanding your personality type helps remove the shame and guilt that comes up when comparing yourself to others and actionable steps to take right now to tweak your planning style to your archetype and increase your productivity. 

Kylie and I cover the following topics:

  • How her four planning archetypes: Powerhouse, Popular, Philanthropist, and Perfectionist loosely relate to the DISC personality types. 
  • The tendencies, challenges, and best planning practices for each archetype.
  • Which archetype struggles the most with planning and areas the other types can support one another.
  • The benefits to understanding your type as well as the archetypes of the people around you. 

Keep in mind the archetypes we talk about today were created by one coach and are not intended to limit you, but rather to encourage you to self-identify, appreciate what you are doing and how you work best, and find freedom in the process.

How to Figure Out Your Planning Style with Kylie Ota
Self-awareness is key to understanding how we work best and finding our purpose, leading to better relationships and avoiding burnout.
Diving into the “powerhouse” tendency and why they operate extremely well as entrepreneurs.
Kylie describes the popular archetype as a "pied piper" with many ideas but struggles with execution due to overcommitment and time management issues.
The Popular type values connectivity and support, and may benefit from traditional planning methods provided by other personality types within a community setting.
It is important for the Philanthropist type to prioritize self-care and establish a morning routine to maintain stability and structure in their life.
Kylie advises the perfectionist to focus on the main goal and not get bogged down in peripheral details.
