Thanks Bevin Niemann for sharing the Archetype Alignment Grid. Very useful. You are right, there are different models and some work better than others depending on the nature of the “client”.

In the case of the “Guru” archetype is where I see the most manipulation and abuse. I don’t know if the “True Guide” or “Connectors” styles can fall into that trap too. Of course, the “Guru” archetype speaks from a position of knowledge (AKA power) probably that’s why. Now I have homework to do :)

Thanks for the thoughtful and thought provoking answer.

Have a wonderful day!!
