As the United Way of Madison County Director of Resource Development for 11 years, I used teambuilding rope courses to enhance our Loaned Executive Training Program. It served as a tremendous asset in giving the team additional tools to help work with a small group of people who were tasked with coming together and accomplishing a daunting task of raising millions of dollars for the community in a very short period of time. Fast forward 10 years . . . I was recently introduced to REAL COLORS and knew immediately that I needed to replace the ropes course with REAL COLORS! It was the best thing I ever did! All of our volunteers had participated in personality assessments before, but REAL COLORS was significantly different. Not only does REAL COLORS shed light on WHO we are and how WE operate, it clearly identifies how we can appreciate and work more effectively and productively with others who may be polar opposite of our personality and not be negatively affected by our differences. Since our training, as a team, there have been many times when we have been preparing for a company presentation and discussing strategy and someone will ask: “What color are they?” I am also thrilled to be able to return these volunteers back into their perspective workplaces with valuable tools that they can use every day to enhance their careers and positively impact their relationships with their fellow co-workers. Thank you, Paul Finley, for working your magic with our United Way Loaned Executive Team and Staff. There is no doubt in my mind that, in the very near future, we will be announcing record-breaking fundraising totals thanks to REAL COLORS!
