True Colors Meets Be Brave. Lose the Beige

16 Mar

I was recently certified as a True Colors facilitator.  True Colors  is a color version of the Myers Briggs indicator.  The founder of True Colors, Don Lowry  liked using color as a metaphor to translate complicated personality theory into practical application.

It was kind of a no brainer marrying True Colors with Be Brave. Lose the Beige, since there is a fun color centric focus to the process of identifying your color spectrum.  While Be Brave. Lose the Beige is not just about color, I liked the idea of using color as a metaphor in our quest for self discovery.  Yes, even at our “age” as Lady Boomers, there is still room for self discovery and increased self awareness.  My colleague, Jackie, and I have been conducting a four week study during Lent.  The Lenten season provides an excellent opportunity for journeying into the wilderness of your selves and gaining an appreciation for your own skills, talents and abilities, as well as that of those around you.  Once our participants (and there have been at least 25) identified their true colors (blue, orange, green, or gold), we encouraged them to engage in a “brightening” exercise in which they illustrated their color spectrum.  The following are a couple of photos of our Lady Boomers’ art work.











As an an avowed “Blue”, I have loved listening to the stories from our Lady Boomers and beholding their creative efforts.  I look forward to more.

      I have the True Colors materials and assessment tool if you are interested. You can also go to True and they have materials for you. I would be happy to help.
