Explore how to enhance Military unit performance, build resilient teams and strong leaders.

Strong leadership is foundational for successful units. The most productive military members are clear and strong communicators who bring out the best in those around them. Effective communication requires active listening, understanding biases, and tailoring the delivery of messages to each situation. Enhancing the way military personnel and their leadership communicate with each other positively impacts resiliency, engagement, morale and productivity.

True Colors teaches military personnel at all levels how to communicate more effectively and how to apply techniques for maximum impact within their base, at home and in their communities. And we do it cost-effectively and quickly. Each year True Colors donates a portion of our revenues to charitable organizations that serve the men and women who have proudly served our country. We thank you for your service. We gladly accept O&M funds as a form of payment, and we are registered with SAM (cage code 63BU5) and also on the CCR.

A book for all members of the USA military, to help build resiliency and gain self-awareness and an appreciation of others. Available for purchase through a certified facilitator.
