True Colors for Non Profits

People don’t quit their jobs, they quit their bosses and/or the people they work with.
Research shows that 60-80% of all difficulties in organizations come from strained relationships between employees, and non profit organizations are no different than their for profit counterparts when it comes to employee challenges.

The cost of turnover in the workplace is extraordinary. Ernst & Young reports that the cost of losing and replacing an employee may be as high as 150% of the departing employee’s annual salary.
( The cost of turnover also includes the manager’s time training new employees.

So if you want to:

  • create or maintain a healthy working environment;
  • help staff improve or develop their interpersonal relationship skills
  • boost productivity and improve employee/volunteer  communications;
  • help new employees/and or volunteers build rapport quickly with an existing team, a True Colors Workshop will do all of this and more.

A True Colors Workshop can improve your workplace culture by training all levels of employees, from executives and managers to front line staff, volunteers and mentors to recognize their greatest strengths and create a more collaborative environment

True Colors has been used successfully for over twenty-six years in non-profit organizations. True Colors programs foster positive, healthy, productive personal development that improves communication, teambuilding, leadership, morale and conflict resolution skills both at work and at home.

The Personal Success workshop was good.  I really believe that this will help the team get to the next level as now they can all relate/understand why people do what they do and how to be a better team mate.  Gillian was very effective.
