Model David Kantor

Kantor explains that people behave differently in different situations, contexts and conversations. They can change into different 'roles':

  • Movers: Think of ideas and keep conversations and ideas moving.
  • Opposers: Challenge new ideas and thus encourage exploration and movement.
  • Followers: are good at adding to and developing ideas and bring support to conversations and progress.
  • Bystanders: Often observers, they bring a quieter voice of support, offering a variety of perspectives to support and develop ideas (source).

The Story

One of the teams working on Personal Mastery compared the different roles everybody can use with the different "houses" inside Hogwarts (Harry Potter):

GryffindorHufflepuffRavenclaw, and Slytherin

Gryffindor: the Mover


Slytherin: the Opposer


Ravenclaw: the Bystander


Hufflepuff: the Follower
