An introduction to True Colors
As a True Colors Facilitator, I work with groups of people to help them embrace the diversity found in communication and working styles. I think the True Colors framework is one of the best ways to introduce a person’s dominant personality type and to help them better understand others.

True Colors is a model of personality identification that is easy to understand, remember and apply. With the colors of Blue, Gold, Green and Orange – True Colors distills the elaborate concepts of personality theory into a user-friendly, practical tool used to foster healthy productive relationships.
