Schedule a True Colors to build your team!

It may seem impossible for individuals with different values, strengths, backgrounds and needs to work together as a cohesive team. But, it’s not.

The key lies in understanding. Once individuals understand the needs and stressors of others, they can interact in ways that promote team cohesion and empathy.

An effective team gets results and meets goals. That’s what you want. An unproductive team costs you money, energy and even valuable staffers.

Schedule a True Colors Team-building training. This is the all important first step in equipping your team to understand, appreciate and learn how to celebrate what each person brings to the team dynamic.

The Orange Leadership Style

Let’s talk about the Orange Leadership Style in this post.

Also, if you not sure what in the world I’m talking about with True Colors, click here.

The Orange temperament (#personalitytypes) tends to be flexible, easy-going and naturally open to change. They are rarely bogged down with the struggles of life. Not that they don’t have struggles, it’s just that they choose not to allow the burdens to affect them as deeply as other temperaments might. The phrase “keep it moving” is likely coined by a person of the Orange temperament.

Let’s be clear. The Orange True Colors temperament has feelings.  They may not show them often Andy to everyone (unless their second color is Blue).  Their feelings can be hurt, but they tend to be emotionally resilient and on to the next thing before the “hurt” sets in. Again, they keep it moving.

A Gold Temperament Manager

Are you ready to learn about the manager with the Gold Temperament? Wait!  If you not sure what in the world I’m talking about with True Colors, click here.

Did you catch my previous blog post about the easy-going, peaceful Blue temperament and it’s implications on leadership? If not, check it out here!

Now, let’s talk Gold.

You have lots of strengths!

If you attended my most recent training in Kansas City, you learned Golds use task lists to manage multiple demands on their time. They like having a good “handle” on their duties and responsibilities and never want to be a slacker.

Is that you? If so, people value your ability to get things accomplished and your many  to-do lists may be a tool you help you get all done.

Training Kansas City Youth to be successful

Training Kansas City Youth for Success

I’m a better “aunt” than “mom” …when it comes to other people’s kids, that is.

Allow me to offer some context.

Training Kansas City Youth is my skill; ongoing opportunities and supports are not.

Over the years, I have developed a great reputation for  delivering engaging, effective and fun True Colors training in Kansas City.

I’ve trained the gamete – young, old and everything in between.

But, I recognized a long time ago that I am better with adults than I am

Finding the right career - Kansas City Training Consultant

Find the right career for me

“How do I find the right career for me?”

Age-old question.  Everyone has asked that question at some point.

Finding the right career is the key to not dreading Monday mornings. Well, maybe that statement is a bit of a stretch. But, if you choose a career that aligns with your personality, you’re more likely to have fun at work and find the job personally fulfilling. Before you choose your first (or second career), I want you to consider your natural talents, skills and life goals. You may not be able to attend one of my Kansas City career exploration workshops, but you can start your own journey toward self-discovery with an online session with me. This Forbes’ article is also a terrific place to get started.

Some interests are meant to be your life’s work,
others are meant to be nothing more than hobbies.
It’s important to know which is which.
