Sheridan Nurseries is a grower of nursery stock and operator of retail Garden Centres.

Solution - Two half-day True Colors workshops for two groups of about 100 people in size each.

First group was senior management and the second group was retail managers and supervisors. The focus of the workshop was to improve communication and teamwork.

True Colours Workshop

In January 2010, we held our annual manager and supervisor meetings at Paramount Conference Centre in Vaughan, Ontario. On each day, our attendees were treated to the True Colours exercise hosted by Gary Bernier. Gary taught our employees the four different colours, Gold, Green, Orange and Blue. Each colour helps identify our perspectives and personalities in ourselves and others. The exercise taught each of us what to expect and more importantly how to communicate with individuals of different colours. We realized that most of us have a dominant colour and are shaded by others in the spectrum. Learning how to appreciate the differences in each of us will lead to more success in our personal and business lives. Thanks for a great presentation Gary!!
