Back in July, I attended a brilliant accreditation workshop called “Click Colours”. The Click Colours concept looks at why we seem to click with some people and why others may drive us crazy.
Getting along with people in all walks of life is important to our success and includes skills such as :
- Decision Making
- Career progression
- Personal well being
Click Colours looks at the different communication styles that people have, and the strengths and limitations of those styles when dealing with others who may not think and communicate like them. Similar to some of the more complex communication style profiling tools such as Myer Briggs and DISC, Click Colours is a simple to use version that does not require the learners to complete lengthy and costly profiling processes.
Learners get the opportunity to self- assess their profile through a number of tools and discussions and then develop an understanding of the other styles and how to ensure you adapt their style to facilitate effective communication.
We will be able to incorporate the Click Colours into our training in a number of ways. In fact any situation where people need to communicate will be well supported by Click Colours. I have already incorporated the concept with great success into workshops on mentoring and a one to one coaching session on leadership skills. I am also currently developing a workshop around creative thinking and strategic planning incorporating the Click Colours concept.
Some of the comments I have had from people who have used the Click
- “Now I understand how a small change in the way I communicate can make a big difference” – Individual coaching session on leadership skills
- “I loved the Click Colours session, now I know why my colleague and I drive each other mad at work – we can now appreciate each other and work on developing new ways to communicate” – Group workshop on
- “The Click Session was really fun, and a very simple way to look at communication styles” – Group workshop on mentoring
Think Communication – Think Click Colours!
