TRUE COLORS

 
True Colors is a fun, informative, communication system that provides the keys to personal success. Based on the Meyers-Briggs Type Indicator and the work of Dr. David Keirsey, True Colors offers a research-based approach to understanding human behavior and motivation. True Colors uses a metaphor of colors (Gold, Orange, Blue, and Green) to identify four distinct perspectives and personalities. Once you begin to incorporate these concepts into daily language and experience, you are able to recognize and appreciate diversity and your own unique strengths and preferences, as well as those of people at work and at home. Differences in human behavior patterns create natural obstacles to clear interpersonal communication blocking effective interaction between individuals of different personality types. True Colors provides a clear, fundamental and universal way of translating complicated individual perspectives to help overcome the barriers to progress.  This understanding improves collaboration, provides a way to strategize and organize work teams, helps increase individual and team productivity and recognition, and provides a way for decision-makers to utilize personality type in day-to-day management decisions.
