Truth about True Colors

Occasionally, I will have a True Colors© participant who has been through the program before tell me that their color spectrum changed since the last time they went through the training. Their concern is that they did it wrong. However, it’s a great opportunity for me to remind people that they are never locked in to color order. For example, blue was one of my least dominant colors when I first determined my color spectrum. A lot in life has changed since then. I have had two kids and I would bet that my blue is stronger than it was a few years ago.

Although I have always liked an organized environment, I don’t think that I would have been a dominant gold in college. The process of juggling my professional and personal life has worked out best for me when things are planned and organized. This really points to why gold is comfortably my dominant color today. Circumstances, opportunities, and experiences all play a role in who we are and it’s not surprising for those experiences to have an effect on the color spectrum.

Has your color spectrum changed over the years? How?

Describe those changes to your colleagues. Remember True Colors is a tool to understanding others and ourselves. It is as a common language because we talk about it and use it to articulate our perspectives to each other. Keep it going.
