The Challenge

Effective communication is an essential ingredient for the success of any individual or organization. Yet across industries, organizations of all sizes commonly misunderstand the complexities of communication.

Communicating effectively doesn’t come naturally. Rather, it’s a critical skill people need to learn. The cost of poor communication is high: Miscommunication costs companies of 100 employees an average of $420,000 per year. Companies with 100,000 employees? An average of $62.4 million per year.

The cost of poor communication isn’t just monetary either. Due to increased confusion, conflict, and loss of productivity, miscommunication damages relationships, cultures, and retention.

Need help? You’re in the right place.

How True Colors Can Help

True Colors programs improve organizational culture through communication development at the individual level. Our Communication Workshop first helps participants recognize their own way of communicating. Then it teaches how to appreciate the different communication styles of others.

True Colors collaborates with you to develop customized online and in-person programming for your entire organization. While each solution we offer is unique, all our solutions promote improved communication through shared experiences, increased self-awareness, a common language to discuss differences, and elevated empathy for others.

We help foster the healthy relationships needed to build engaged, collaborative, and successful teams. Together, we can improve communication and workplace culture throughout your organization.

Our Evidence-Based Approach

The True Colors proprietary methodology distills complex temperament theory into practical tools and actionable programs. We use colors — Orange, Gold, Green, and Blue — to differentiate the four primary personality types and illuminate how these types best interact with each other.

By helping individuals better understand themselves and others, our evidence-based approach reveals the “why” behind communication issues within organizations.

Utilizing this knowledge, True Colors provides programmatic solutions that improve relationships, cultures, and retention.
