Program Overview & Structure

With this new self-guided personal and team transformation system, you can predict and overcome pitfalls that hold you and your people back.

Fire, Earth, Metal, Water, and Wood. These five elements naturally occur in our physical environment and are the building blocks of how all people grow and transform. Understanding the elements and how they interact reveals precisely how employees become rock stars and how resistance becomes resilience.

The Five Archetypes certificate program unfolds in five sequential modules to create content mastery. Students may register for 1 – 5 modules, but you must take modules in order.

The program lasts six months and includes 15 two-hour classes, and requires the completion of a case study. You should expect to spend 1 – 3 hours per week on coursework outside class time. We keep class size small to provide individualized attention for mastery of the material.
