Real Colors® Training

The Power of Real Colors®

Imagine having the knowledge to truly understand yourself and others, without requiring years of study. Real Colors® is the key. Real Colors® provides an effective tool to understanding human behavior, for uncovering motivators specific to each temperament and for improving communication skills.

The Real Colors® Personality Instrument used in the workshop is presented in a fast, fun, interactive format where participants can learn how to quickly identify their own temperament or “color” and that of others. Using this powerful knowledge, they can develop more effective communication skills and build better relationships.

Real Colors® is easy to incorporate into all areas of daily life. It is the key to achieving higher levels of success, both personally and professionally.

The Power to Impact Communication

When an individual understands their color, they will be able to gain a more authentic view of themselves, as well as develop a better understanding of others. Communication and social abilities will be enhanced and opportunities for greater success will expand.

  • Discover their personal strengths.

Quotes from past participants

The research-based tool helped us all understand what roles we play on the job (i.e., peacemaker, organizer, pragmatist, energizer), what we seek on the job, take pride in and are stressed by on the job. The training offered fun interactive activities to meet the training objectives, and facilitation by Extension staff was excellent.” 
Ben J., Health Officer/Public Health Manager

"Working with Extension to execute the real colors exercise was both immediately enlightening and practically useful for communicating in the future. Our elected officials and staff learned to self-identify communication styles and the strengths and weaknesses within each other to both make adjustments on their behalf and when working with others in order to foster more direct and actionable verbal collaboration -- both one-on-one and in a team setting.
John W., Village Administrator
