  • Executive Coaching to assist individuals in reaching their personal potential and professional goals. As leaders we need opportunities for professional reflection and consultation to identify our goals and develop strategies to achieve them.
  • Four Color Leadership Training and Team Building to assist organizations in transforming organizational life and leveraging the tools and talents of their system. Personality is the organizing principle that influences all aspects of people’s lives. It drives the way people gather information, make decisions, and interact with others. It determines people’s work habits, stress points, and responses to change and conflict. Most importantly, however, personality points toward people’s unique giftedness, strengths, and competencies.The Personality Color Indicator identifies predominant personality traits specifically pertaining to your preference for gathering information and making decisions. It classifies different personality types into Four Color Personality TypesRed, Orange, Yellow, and Green. Your results will offer insight into why you think and act the way you do and help you better understand yourself. As an added benefit, the PCI can also help you better understand the other people in your life and help you learn to interact with them more effectively.
