We would all like to know more about the personalities of the people that we work with on a daily basis, wouldn’t you? Imagine how you might be able to build deeper and more meaningful relationships with your fellow travelers–interested?
You are in for a treat because this podcast is about a new book entitled “Archetypes at Work“, and the authors Laurence Hillman and Richard Olivier written a book and an online assessment that can become the defacto for anyone attempting to improve employee engagement.
The authors believe that humanity has reached a crucial moment in history-a turning point-and in order to survive and thrive in the future we will need all the help we can get. Understanding the 10-Archetypes outlined in their book can and will become an invaluable tool to help people engage with personal, professional, and cultural development in this increasingly complex and fragile world.
Archetypes are the underlying patterns of human nature and experience that recur throughout history and across all cultures. They are the organizing factors and primordial principles that lie behind appearances but give things and people their distinct energetic footprint. As such as they are -often invisibly-running the show. They deeply inform the character we present to the world as an individual, and the culture we present to the world collective. They inform our values and motivations, and often dictate our mindset and behavior. The better we understand these patterns, and the more consciously we use them, the more effective we will be.
