You may lead with one colour energy, but it is the combination of the four colour energies that create the unique you! We are all nuanced, and how these colours interact may differ depending on the day, surroundings, external and internal pressures. An awareness of how you are ‘showing up’ to others each day is crucial not only to elevate your self-awareness but also to understand how you interact with your team.

Your team is unique, so leverage these individual preferences and treat others not as you would like to be treated, but as they would like to be treated! The result? Harmony in your team through a shared understanding of preferences.
