Your Personal Style and the Archetypes of Change Agents
Are you a magician? Or a hero? These are some of the 13 archetypes of change agents that Risto Sarvas presents. The archetypes are based on real life experience in the design, business, and corporate world. Before the thought-provoking (and humorous) archetypes, a quick introduction to finding your own style as a facilitator is given.
1. Finding your own style as a facilitator
2. Archetypes of change agents
The exercises were part of the course in spring 2020, originally done in pairs and submitted by email to receive credits from the course. In this online handbook, the exercises cannot be submitted for feedback, as it is not possible to receive credits. Yet we highly encourage you to check the exercises, and do, or at least think about them. They are best done with a pair, for example a colleague or a fellow student, but can also be done alone, thinking of your own current situation.
This chapter’s exercise is about making your own facilitator “passport” or profile, listing all the things your are really good at, and the things you have space for improvement. Listing your strengths helps also in finding your own style.
