What are your True Colours?

Last week I was fortunate enough to attend a 3 day seminar dealing with a subject that has a huge impact in all facets of our lives - peoples different personalities.

We all know that we have certain "traits" that make us who we are, that make us tick and make us respond to certain situations the way we do. I am also sure that we are aware that we respond to certain personality types more favourabely than others.

This 3 day, True Colors, seminar was the tip of the proverbial iceberg for us, but what an interesting iceberg it turned out to be.

Without delivering the entire seminar to you in this posting the primary purpose of True Colors , is, "to provide a model of personality identification that is easy to understand, remember and apply."

And boy did it deliver!

A simple process using 4 color coded cards, and a word cluster evaluation, allowed us to identify our primary color (the one that represents us the most), and our secondary, tertiary etc colors.F

From here, we began to delve into a number of relevant and extremely enlightening discussions and activities.

Each one brought us a better understanding of the different colors and what motivates them, what they value, what brings them joy and what brings them frustration.

In fact, a complete 360 degree picture appeared of all 4 of the personality types. How they operate at work, in love and in life.

This insight allowed us to identify and develop strategies to improve personal relationships and elevate job performance.

In fact, we were all surprised how simple, and logical, the whole process was.

As an organization, Innovative Fitness is extremely excited about implementing True Colors into our corporate culture and we are extremely confident of the positive impact it will have.

True Colors provides a FREE online assessment for you to get a better understanding as to what it is all about. I highly recommend you take 5 minutes and work through the questionaire.

And if you are interested, I am a primary Gold, followed very closely by Green, then Blue and finally Orange.

What are your colors?
