How Does The Queen Archetype Influence Your Business?

Diving into the world of archetypes can shed light on our business behaviors and decisions. One powerful archetype that stands out, especially for women in business, is the Queen. The Queen archetype symbolizes leadership, authority, and nurturing – think of a figure who leads with grace, but also with a firm hand when needed.

In the business realm, embodying the Queen archetype means leading your venture with confidence and vision. It’s about making strategic decisions, guiding your team with wisdom, and creating a legacy that lasts. But, like any journey, the path of the Queen evolves.

Starting out, many find themselves in the ‘Child Princess’ phase. Here, there’s enthusiasm and dreams aplenty, but perhaps a lack of experience or direction. Businesses at this stage are full of potential, yet they may lack clear strategies or defined goals. The excitement is palpable, but without guidance, it’s easy to veer off course.

As we grow, we enter the ‘Teenager Princess’ stage. Here, there’s a bit more savvy, a touch of rebellion perhaps, and a desire to prove oneself. In business, this translates to taking risks, experimenting with new ideas, and defining what sets us apart. The downside? Sometimes, that rebellious streak can lead to rash decisions or conflicts within the team.

The ultimate goal is to reach the ‘Mature Queen’ phase. This is where true leadership shines. A Mature Queen leads her business with a clear vision, making decisions that benefit not just the company, but also the community it serves. She’s nurturing yet decisive, creating an environment where her team can thrive. However, even Queens have to be wary of becoming too detached or authoritative, as this can stifle creativity and morale.

The shadow side of the Queen archetype, the ‘Tyrant,’ is a cautionary tale for any leader. In business, this manifests as micromanagement, harsh criticism, or an inability to listen to others. We’ve all seen or heard of leaders who, despite their success, leave a trail of disgruntled employees and missed opportunities due to their heavy-handed approach.

So, how do we navigate these stages and embrace the positive aspects of our inner Queen without falling into the Tyrant trap? It’s about balance, self-awareness, and a willingness to grow. Recognizing where you are on this journey can be a game-changer for your business.
