Our models build awareness of predictable, easily recognizable response patterns to stress and provide tools to build trust between those who depend on each other’s cooperation and coordination.
Grey, Green, Red, and Blue are the colors we use in our descriptions. Knowing the nonverbal clues of our descriptors boosts our participants’ Relating Effectiveness Quotient.
It’s a way of understanding others. When you detect someone is in a state other than Blue, they are expressing a response to pressure. Therefore, you bypass being judgmental because you understand the behavior (although you may not like it). Grey, Green, and Red are not who people are. It is their response to stress. You can be a facilitator to invite them back to being their best – being Blue. Our programs invite personal awareness and teach skills that help you to be highly effective when serving customers and relating to others. They help build trust and prepare you for unwelcome stresses and even irate encounters. Click here to Read More
Grey, Green, and Red, suggest the presence of stress – nothing more and nothing less.
You will know which approach to choose – directive, supportive, or participative.
You will have more confidence in doing a job, approaching others for help, and participating in the resolution of conflicts.
Watch how people hold their heads. Look at the motions of their hands and arms. What are their eyes doing? There are many clues others give you during an interaction that you may not know what the best response is.
The tools we provide have been used and validated by hundreds of thousands of participants. Before we get to work we will tell you what we are going to do, share a sample of our material, agree on a fee structure, and schedule our engagement.
We also work closely with educational institutions by providing content for a variety of courses and conducting joint research projects.
It’s a neat little package – one that you can trust to be congruent and helpful to you, the listener and observer.
But perhaps the greatest benefit of sensitizing yourself to the meaning of others’ behavior is this reminder:
Blue is contagious. Be in the Blue yourself and when you are not sure about someone else’s color, treat them as if they are in the Blue. You are issuing an invitation and they often accept. You feel better and so do they. Spread it all around.
Our participants report memorable experiences because their personal needs are heard, considered, and addressed.
Our process is built on the premise that you and those you interact with when given a choice, prefer rational discussions to arguments, joint defining of workable options to power struggles, and being effective over disappointing exchanges.
Participants consistently report increased confidence and effectiveness when interacting with others.
