Caregiver

The caregiver Archetype

An oasis of comfort
in a bustling world.

The CAREGIVER IN INDIVIDUALS

The Caregiver is highly sensitive to everything going on around them, picking up on unspoken fears, lacks, and negative emotions.

These trigger a sense of compassion and protection; they are the first to offer a hand, a shoulder, or an ear.

Caregivers are driven by a passion to help and are able to give freely without expecting anything in return.

The CAREGIVER IN ORGANIZATIONS

Caregiver workplace cultures put people first. They are stable, responsive, nurturing environments where it’s possible for others to grow and heal.

They create systems and structures that keep people safe and secure. Caregiver teams and organizations are customer-focused.

Dependency, martyrdom, over-delivery, and sleepless nights from caring too much may signal a Caregiver has slipped into the shadow side.
