"We cannot overstate the value of the True Colours course that Gary facilitated for our company. It is a wonderfully simple, yet very powerful approach on how to best understand other people's perspectives. This process helps you identify your unique values and recognize strengths in others, and shows you how to make the most of this knowledge to improve working relationships and communicate effectively with fellow colleagues and clients. True Colors helped us learn about others while gaining an understanding of ourselves that we may not have had previously. More than a year after training, we are still utilizing this tool - we introduce new employees to the concept and identify their True Colors profile. We highly recommend it."
