The Story Behind the Colors

The story is real and personal. A few years back my son was getting married to a wonderful beautiful young lady. As I was telling my colleagues about the wedding preparations, I was interjecting my thoughts on how I believe they should do things differently. It was at that moment that my dear colleague looked at me and said, “Lucille you are RED and you need to learn to be BEIGE.”  I immediately got it! It painted a visual picture and the concept was clear. The correlation between colors and personality traits/communication styles was evident. This was the impetus for my program, The Art of Communicating®. Many participants have improved their interpersonal communications skills and have found these concepts easy to learn and implement. 

Target Audience
