What is Archetypes at Work™?

Archetypes at Work™ is a cutting-edge method to assess and develop people and organisations to become fit for the future. Olivier Mythodrama is the first official partner to undertake this methodology, both in our classic story-led leadership programmes, and as a unique offering.

It offers a comprehensive framework to recognise and understand 'what's really going on' in individuals, teams and larger organisational systems. Combining psychological depth with a unique creative experiential approach to personal and professional development, this system is practical and accessible.

For Leaders:

  • Identify your leadership strengths and what you bring most to your organisation
  • Recognise areas to develop and enhance these qualities to become a more complete leader
  • Recognise personality traits in others and adapt your style to improve communication


For Organisations:

  • Develop a common language within teams
  • Identify strengths and weaknesses in projects
  • Deepen understanding of workplace values and ethos
  • Build a culture of authentic feedback and communication
