By discovering whether we have a preference for blue, green, red or yellow energy helps us to understand why we behave the way we do and our strengths and weaknesses. This allows us to communicate more effectively and strengthen team relationships.

You can give yourself a tailored energy boost depending on your preferred colour energy. Take these suggestions on board and see if they work for you:

Cool Blue preference: Create new processes to make tasks more efficient; reflect with others to share and reflect best practice in the organisation; and take time to find out all the facts so you are prepared for any surprises.
Sunshine Yellow preference: Suggest a team lunch off-site; visit another department to see how you can get involved and help; and get creative and share solutions to the problems you see.
