Why Use True Colors?

The number one reason employees are dissatisfied or leave their jobs is workplace relationship struggles, especially with their direct supervisor or team leader – followed by a lack of communication, trust, appreciation and fair treatment.

The True Colors® methodology has helped millions of people find personal success and dramatically improve their interpersonal relationships in these areas and beyond.

It has a twenty year track record of success with hundreds of companies like Ford, Pfizer, Washington Mutual, ESPN, Kraft, Boeing, JC Penny, Cargill, Sabre, I.C. System, and thousands of schools, hospitals, and government agencies, who have used it to build teamwork, improve communication and enhance customer relations.

 

Embracing Diversity with True Colors

The core of the True Colors® system identifies intrinsic values, motivations, self-esteem, sources of dignity and worthiness, causes of stress, communication styles, listening styles, non-verbal responses, language patterns, social skills, learning styles, environmental motivators, cultural appeal, negative mental states, relationship orientation, and ethical behaviors. A True Colors training provides:

  • Increased understanding of self and others
  • Expanded appreciation for valuing differences
  • Communication skill-building
  • Avenues for a more harmonious, productive environment
  • Easy integration into existing organizational framework and previous programs
  • A universal language that accelerates problem solving, increases trust, and reduces conflict

Imagine, finally understanding why people behave the way they do!

People see the world differently, listen for different information, and feel satisfied by different outcomes.

Orange personalities will talk about how fun and exciting the day was, and how much more energy the group developed to solve its problems. Motivation to work as a team evaporated the old burnout and stagnation.

Gold temperaments will tell you that the workshop was valuable because it improves the bottom line, and the group performs more efficiently and more productively.

Green oriented people will point out that this methodology is intellectually rigorous, and has proven results that can be replicated again and again in developing interpersonal skills that endure.

Blue inclined personalities will feel satisfied by the feeling of group unity that developed, the improved team morale, and the relief to have animosity turn into appreciation.

So, which one of these perspectives is the “right” one to describe the usefulness of True Colors? It’s obvious that they are all correct, even though they are different.

True Colors has shown us that it is a good thing we are not all alike.

“For me it started with my personal life and has now become an OUTSTANDING communication tool at work.

I’m not big on recommending things to people unless they have made a tremendous impact on my life. I’m very excited to share something that has really transformed my life this year …If you’re in a relationship I can’t say enough good stuff about True Colors… It’s been pivotal in my life and I feel it’s made me a better partner and a better business leader.”
