The Power of Coloured Brain Communication and Personal Effectiveness for Career Brilliance


Course introduction

Have you ever explained something so clearly to someone, yet they do not seem to understand you? Or vice versa?

Or wonder why the same exact information can be interpreted differently by different people? Why does this happen?

When communicating with others, or if you would like to persuade or influence decision making, would you be interested to find out how “coloured brain” communication can help you to do so as well as facilitate the working relationship?

This workshop also explains 8 fundamental human drivers that guides our individual actions and decisions. In other words, these drivers can motivate or demotivate performance.

The ranking of these drivers can change with time, based on our environment, our experiences, and especially our traumas.

When we uncover our strongest/top drivers, we will be able to know why we made certain past decisions or will likely continue to make certain decisions or have certain challenges in the future. It also enable us to understand whether we are in the right job or the types of jobs that will best fulfil our emotional drivers.
