Providing the foundation for communication and career development:

Real Colors® can offer great insight to individuals in different stages of their professional lives—from those who are still deciding on a career path to those who have worked in their dream job for over 40 years.

Real Colors can be used at these various stages:

1. You are unclear about what type of work you would like to do

By completing the Real Colors Assessment Instrument and attending a workshop conducted by a certified Real Colors facilitator, you will gain knowledge of your Color Spectrum, which can guide you to possible careers you may be suited to.

2. If you have a career already, but want to perform better

Real Colors can really help you perform better on a team by providing better awareness of your and others’ communication styles. By acknowledging we each have all four colors and by being aware of the different strengths of each color, you can work more effectively on a team or group.

3. If you want more effective communication at work

By being aware of other people’s Color Spectrum, communication becomes more effective.

4. If you have an upcoming job interview

Being able to succinctly communicate your unique strengths and weaknesses in an interview will clearly shows the interviewer how (or if!) you will fit into his/her established team. Thinking in “colors” as you answer and ask questions will also help you stand out among other applicants.

Real Colors has consistently been the most amazing training we have done in the past 25 years. It has been pivotal in shaping our team dynamics and given us a tangible way to better understand our client’s needs. We are a small team who dreams big, and we have to get along. Without Real Colors we would not have achieved the same level success.

I have been a Real Colors trainer for many years and have worked with over 20 different organizations providing training, follow-up and coaching. I have found that this professional development provides essential clues into the relationships of any organization. This information is instrumental in forming teams, addressing conflict, and explaining behaviors. I do not know of any other training that has the potential to impact an organization as much as Real Colors.

Real Colors is a wonderful tool that helps individuals learn more about themselves, others and provides a common understanding for working through areas of conflict.

’Transforming’ comes to mind when I think about how Real Colors has impacted my world!

’Transforming’ comes to mind when I think about how Real Colors has impacted my world! At Merchants Bank we have incorporated this as part of our Culture – our new employee, supervisors/managers, and committees/ meetings all use this foundation to ensure we have good representation of colors. It’s amazing how once you have identified the strengths of one’s colors and put them on a work team the success that is achieved!

Real Colors is a tool that helped me better understand my self and others.

Real Colors is a tool that helped me better understand my self and others. It opened my mind to the understanding that what is motivating to me, may not be what is motivating others. Knowing somebody's color helps me determine their motivations and a motivated person is very likely to open up and be influenced, especially when it's in their best interest.

I have facilitated Real Colors to over 200 individuals, ranging from hourly to executive level. For me, the most rewarding part is watching everyone have an "ah-ha" moment, and embrace it. Real Colors truly helps people understand each other's differences and fosters a team atmosphere.
