By sharing our individual profiles with each other and focusing on our 'team wheel' we have been able to develop a much better understanding of our different styles and strengths and how they can be used to complement each other. The team development days and Team Audits have helped us to build better relationships and work more effectively as a whole project team - our communication is more open , collaborative working is more focused and we have a greater appreciation of the contribution each member makes to the team resulting in our project being back on track and delivering against client needs" 9 Month’s Later – Client Feedback Inspiring People, Delivering Results What You Can Do Next • Obtain a free sample Discovery Profile and Team Performance Report • Visit The Colour Works Community page at www.thecolourworks.com for free tips, hints, articles, blogs on leadership, communication and team-work • Connect on LinkedIn
