Archetypes. What is an Archetype?

With the result of the competency assessment, each employee can receive feedback and internal positioning based on an archetype.

The archetype is a behavioral profile that reflects an employee's strongest competencies, as determined by annual assessments.

These profiles are tailored to each client's specific competency model and aim to facilitate personal development.

Each archetype contains:

* An image

* Motto

* Description

* Characteristics

* Points to consider

* Development tips

They provide employees with a comprehensive view of their strengths and suggest targeted development tips for improvement.

Each year, employees can access their updated archetype following their performance evaluation. This profile may change or stay the same, depending on the employee's progress in various competencies.

To establish these archetypes, it's essential for the client and the integrator to collaborate.

This ensures that the archetype algorithm is well-aligned with the company's specific needs and realities.

Here is an example of an archetype with the name "Navigator":
