Be More Productive

Effective communication is an essential ingredient for the success of any organization. It directly impacts employee engagement, retention, and—most importantly—productivity. Unfortunately, training on the intricacies of effective communication is rarely a priority set by management, producing an unintended void that can negatively impact progress.

This is where True Colors International can help.

Addressing the Source

Poor communication can quickly lead to employee frustration and a decrease in collaboration. We help address ineffective communication on individual, team, and organizational scales so every corner of your organization maximizes its most important resource: its employees.

Our Methodology

As individuals, we don’t all communicate in the same manner. We each have a unique personality that affects the way we work, convey information, receive feedback, and make decisions. Our consulting methodology harnesses this basic principle to help establish a culture that values differences and creates unity—important factors in boosting employee engagement and productivity.

Establishing an “Environment of Understanding”

Step One

True Colors International begins with an assessment that helps employees understand why they each do what they do (that is, why they convey information, receive feedback, and make decisions the way they do).

Step Two

Harnessing your employees’ newly acquired insights about themselves and their colleagues, we then provide communication training and consulting through fun and engaging workshops to show how your organization can achieve the ever-important “environment of understanding” that dissolves communication barriers, improves collaboration, and increases productivity.

Workplace Communication Statistics

Internal communication is one of the biggest influences on employee engagement, yet only 24 percent of North American employees are highly engaged in their work. What’s more, according to Gallup, employees who are actively disengaged cost their companies $3,400 for every $10,000 worth of salary. 

Communication Case Study

This case study covers the barriers created by a civilian-versus-military mentality that can create dissent and frequent miscommunication among peers, and how True Colors helps combat it.
