Fire Earth Tie

What is The Five Archetypes?

  • A science-based system that teaches people to thrive in the face of challenge, improving personal well-being, relationships, and the effectiveness of business strategies.
  • A systematic approach to build confidence, empathy, and a growth mindset.
  • It's not a personality test; its primary goal is to guide us to grow ourselves, others and our organizations - especially in the face of chaos and adversity - rather than merely emphasizing our differences.

How to use your Five Archetypes results:
  • Step 1: Notice your highest and lowest archetypes. You may have ties, which is fine!

  • The assessment takes about 10 minutes. As you consider how to rate each phrase, be careful not to fall into the trap of “I should.”
  • Instead, pause and reflect on how frequently in the past three months you have felt aligned with each statement. The more accurate your answers, the more spot on your personalized action plan will be.
