True Workplace Emotional Intelligence
Emotional intelligence (often shortened to EI or EQ for "emotional quotient") is a person's ability to recognize, understand, manage, and reason with their emotions.
We know that the importance of EI in the workplace includes being able to better understand nonverbal cues, properly adjust your behavior, feel motivated, make good decisions, empathize with colleagues and clients, and become a respected leader.
We also know that teams whose members have high levels of EI will perform better, have increased job satisfaction, and experience better employee retention rates. Whereas a team with just one person with low EI may suffer from an increase in workplace conflict, decreased performance, and high turnover.
It’s easy to see why EI has become highly valued in the workplace. Leaders worldwide want employees on their teams with high levels of EI. True Colors has the custom solution needed to develop EI in your employees.
Over 80% of competencies that differentiate top performers from others are in the domain of EI.
How True Colors Can Help
True Colors programs help leaders, managers, and staff better understand themselves and each other through increased EI. While each solution we offer is unique, all our solutions promote EI growth through shared experiences, increased self-awareness, a common language to discuss differences, and elevated empathy for others.
We collaborate with you to develop customized online and in-person programming for your entire organization. Our methodology is the foundation from which to implement a robust EI program with lasting outcomes and benefits.
True Colors programs are appropriate for organizations of all types and sizes. We customize our offerings and consulting services to meet your needs. Our programming focuses on such areas as:
Recruitment & retention
Engagement & productivity
Diversity, equity, inclusion
Our Evidence-based Methodology
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 behavioral issues within organizations.
As a result, True Colors improves organizational effectiveness by providing programmatic solutions to today’s pressing challenges.
