Learning The Influencer's Mantra
the Philosophy, Archetypes, Dynamics and Forces Influencing
Change artists practice the art of influence. Have you wondered how
they know what to do at just the right time? What forms the basis
for their practice? Would you like to improve your influencing
In this workshop you will:
The Influencers Mantra:
- Gain skill in creating safety for change through Influence
- Learn how Influencer archetypes and Dynamics both enable and
- Take away your “Mantra” to help you influence Agile adoption
or any change
Mantra (n): A word or group of words, an act or a series of acts -
all considered capable of creating “transformation”. (“man” - mind +
“tra” - liberation).
This workshop examines the Influencer's unique challenge and
provides a “Mantra” for the Influencer to become more effective. We
start the workshop with the Influencer’s philosophy, archetypes,
dynamics, and forces before, during and after change.
This workshop is for Influencers. Change Artists who want to knowing
themselves deeply and understand the “hero’s journey” that has been
their life so far, and what’s next for them.
The Journey Inward:
We journey inward into the Influencer’s the mental models.
Participants will create their influence map. They’ll learn what
influences them, how they influence, and where they are on their
Influencer’s journey. This results in clarity of their true personal
vision and Influencer archetypes.
The Journey Outward:
Turning outward, we’ll interactively explore the Influencer’s
philosophy, archetypes, dynamics, and forces during change. In
groups we’ll experience how Mantras interact. Then we’ll draw the
Influence map based on the interactions. Using that Influence map
we’ll generate information and ideas on how to improve their change
experience. Finally we’ll apply those ideas to the change process.
Finally, we summarize the “Mantra” that helps Influencers during
change in any context. What does the context want/need? What is the
philosophy for change? What archetypes are available or missing?
What forces are involved in the change?
At the end of the workshop participants will have clarity into their
personal vision. They’ll be able to draw influence maps showing the
philosophy, archetypes, dynamics and forces for change. As a change
artist / influencer they’ll know the mantra for adopting and
influencing successful change initiatives.
