A Brief Conversation About True Colors

Where has the time gone?

June is just about finished and we’re heading into July. We think of July as red, white and blue. How about we add Gold, Orange, Green and Blue? Are you using the True Colors language in your area? If you haven’t done this in a while, try it. During a conversation, weave in a True Colors compliment: “That was very blue of you. Thank you!” If you notice someone being green, in other words, being inquisitive or looking at the big picture to help solve a problem let them know. “Wow, your green is really bright.” Let’s say you want to brighten your orange, ask someone to lunch you may not normally see. It’s spontaneous and it will certainly surprise them. When was the last time you cleaned your office? Brighten your gold and organize a part of your work space you’ve been meaning to do. July can be a slow month for some areas on campus so add a little True Colors to your space. The brightening can be contagious.
