Colorful Connections DVD

This workshop provides the foundational understanding of different personality types in a fun, interactive and informative format. Participants will learn the basic building blocks of personality type, assess their own personalities, learn how to assess others within seconds and, most meaningfully, learn how to apply that knowledge to have better interactions with everyone they currently know, or will meet in the future.

The following workshops build on the knowledge gained in Basic Colorful Connections, but can also stand alone as the personality types are reviewed at the beginning of each of the sessions.

Many employers don’t attract the employees and team members they really want because they don’t take the time to properly seek them out.

Attendees leave the session with a real process to apply to their specific jobs.
