Building our Individual Strengths – Functioning Together – Changing our Communities
by Alison Acker
We started the session with a discussion about the assigned readings and videos we did over the month, getting into the mindset of applying these tips and skills to our own lives and how we can take these skills to become more effective leaders. Then, we discussed each other’s colors and questions in a safe place in order to try and better understand each other and work together. Everyone functions differently and is not exactly like any single color. Finding a balance within ourselves and with each other is important. What does frustration look like for each color? Be able to identify triggers in yourself and gain a better understanding of each color in order to interpret and help each other. Understanding what a person needs when frustrated (alone time, comfort, etc.). Blues would prefer people to be there for them while greens need alone time.
