Q: How do you describe True Colors®?
My most common answer is that it's a personality communications tool. Truthfully, it's much more. It starts with a personality self-assessment and then focuses on understanding how to communicate more effectively with different personalities and understanding their strengths, stresses, joys and frustrations.
Q: So, is it just another personality or temperament test?
Absolutely not. While the True Colors® assessment will render results statistically valid to various assessments like the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator®, there is nothing in the teaching methodology remotely similar. True Colors® is truly a tool designed to create success in dealing with others.
Q: What makes a True Colors® training different from others?
It's fun and relevant. Organizations can't afford to waste time and money on training that doesn't improve performance, and employees certainly don't want to attend an event that isn't engaging.
Q: What do you like most about conducting True Colors® presentations?
The laughter. True Colors® has a trademarked delivery methodology known as "Edutainment®." This is the primary commodity for delivering the outstanding results for which True Colors® is known. When you laugh, it's easier to learn.
Q: What has surprised you the most about True Colors® applications in the workplace?
Two things really stand out in my mind. First, when an organization completes a training, it changes the language amongst that group. True Colors® "talk" becomes the language for expressing the traits of others and the understanding within that language immediately improves communication, morale and self-esteem. Secondly, I've been delighted at how effectively True Colors® serves as a management tool. It really helps management teams to assess departmental strengths and weaknesses, realign personnel, improve performance and employee satisfaction.
