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 unwraps the “why” behind organizational issues.
