Fire Water 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!
