True Colors Workshop
The True Colors
Workshop helps answer why people do the things they do and how to communicate,
understand and appreciate the diversity of our fellow human beings.
Workshop description with learning objectives
True Colors is a lighthearted, but well-researched communication tool
to help participants understand themselves and others in a safe environment. This
tool can assist in more effective leadership and teamwork in the workplace.
Intrinsic in human nature is the need for self-confidence and esteem, two
characteristics widely recognized as the basis for successful behavior.
Recognizing this need for self-confidence, individual respect,
worthiness and self-esteems, True Colors has been created as the vocabulary
through which people can communicate the expression of their character.
True Colors is an easy, entertaining way to begin to understand
yourself and others. Discovering your colors will be fun and exciting and once
you recognize the True Colors in your self and in others, awareness will
become the key to success in personal, professional and social activities.

BaFa ‘BaFa’ is a powerful cross-cultural simulation game to
help you understand the effects culture has in everyone’s lives. It can help participants rethink their
behavior and attitude toward others, examine their biases and stereotypes, and
help participants rethink how they interact with others.
BaFa ‘BaFa’ can take from 30 minutes to two hours depending
on the size of your group. At least two
rooms are needed for this activity.

Simulation is a way to help people experience some of the
sensory changes that occur as we age.
Whether you’re a business organization, a student, or classroom, it is
important to understand aging. Perhaps
you have a customer who speaks to you in a certain manner, perhaps you’re
wanting to be a social worker at a hospital; this simulation will allow you to
experience how aging can affect your customers, consumers, or clients.
