Colorful Communication

Colorful Communication

Session Overview:

The Colorful Communication session uses a variety of interactive activities and an assessment tool, Lumina Spark, to understand personal style and the styles of others. The unique approach on understanding self and others is based on a metaphor of colors to describe personal style. Participants will explore their personas, communication styles, and perceived strengths and weaknesses. Exercises within the session are carefully designed to aid participants in exploring and uncovering personal truths surrounding interpersonal communication. They will be taught a positive common "color" language enabling them to discuss difficult feedback in a positive, more productive method. Time is spent exploring responses to stress and interactions with others learning how to use that information in an affirmative manner.
