City of Alva employees participate in training at NWTC
April 16, 2021
Last week Northwest Technology Center (NWTC) in Alva hosted a True Colors workshop for City of Alva employees. This workshop was presented by Dr. Jeremy Eaton and scheduled by Angelica Brady, City of Alva business manager. True Colors has been used globally including Fortune 500 companies like Amazon, Google and Ford.
True Colors uses personality tests to determine temperament and personality types. People are defined as one of four colors: orange, gold, green and blue. Orange characterizes someone as energetic, spontaneous and charming. Gold people are punctual, organized and precise. Green is classified as someone who is intuitive and a visionary. People that are grouped in blue are cooperative, compassionate and empathetic.
"The ability to deliver world-class leadership training opportunities directly to our community partners is one of my most rewarding roles as assistant superintendent. The cutting-edge instruction available to our local business and industry are literally just a phone call or email away," Eaton said.
The training helps business and organizations run more efficiently. The City of Alva looks to do the same. "We're planning to create better communication amongst our supervisors and our employees," Brady said.
In the workplace, people with differing personality traits must learn to work together and capitalize on the strengths of one another. True Colors helps to start that process.
"I'm encouraging our supervisors to take this information down to their employee groups and have conversations about this training with their employees and utilize this information more" Brady said.
