As we prepare for a new academic year, it is essential for us to continuously reframe our perspective and remember how to communicate with other coworkers. Recall back to when you went through True Colors training and how the facilitator reframed the perception others have toward a dominant color with the individual’s perspective of how they see oneself. Reframing your perspective is vital to working efficiently with others towards the common goal. Find a positive attribute in every person you work with, which will lead to reframing how you view them and what they contribute. Once you have reframed, remember each person has a different listening style when you communicate.
Keep your thoughts positive because your thoughts become your words.
Keep your words positive because your words become your behavior.
Keep your behavior positive because your behavior becomes your habits.
Keep your habits positive because your habits become your values.
Keep your values positive because your values become your destiny.

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 a common language because we talk about it and use it to articulate our perspectives to each other. Keep it going.
