Tried to communicate with a person, with whom you normally communicate well, but couldnt get them to see your side? Consider this Each person approaches projects and conversations differently. Most people approach professional life differently than personal life. Sometimes, understanding how you may be perceived can help you understand how to better communicate.

Don Lowry, creator of True Colors Successful people know who they are and what their True Colors are when you know what your core values and needs are and feel good about them, you can perform at your highest potential in every area of life. And when you share a working, mutual understanding of other core values and needs, you have the basis to communicate, motivate, and achieve common goals with utmost dignity, efficacy, and mutual respect. Conclusion Everyone has some of each color. We each have our strengths and our weaknesses.

Try to play to each others strengths and consider how others approach ideas, projects, and communication. Use this information to become a better communicator and team player. Assume Good Intent
