Athletic Directors (Parent Presentations):

  • Tom was excellent.  A solid message.

Junior High Students: 

  • It was really fun!
  • I liked this program very much. I liked the mind tricks and games.
  • I think it really helped me know more about myself and ho others feel about me. When we shared which color we are with our friends and classmates, we go to know more about what kind of person they were.
  • I really like the program because it showed me who I was.
  • At first I wasn't very interested, but as it got farther into the program, I became very interested. It is a great way to describe feelings and attitudes.
  • My overall reaction to this program was "COOL". I finally found who I really am and the Color I am.
  • I definitely liked it. It definitely raised the bar for the next retreat.
  • It was interesting to learn about the Colors. The whole program was fun.
  • I found out a lot about myself. I didn't know that I came across to some as fun and others as annoying.
  • It was a lot better than I expected it to be. The True Colors were actually really true.
    It was fun for the most part. I felt like the True Colors course was very accurate for me.
  • I really liked it. It was cool finding out what color you are.
  • My overall reaction was satisfied and amazed. I was satisfied with what I learned from the presentation; I am also amazed because I learned new things about people's personalities.
  • It started off slow and then got better and we left too soon.
  • I was surprised how much I learned about myself - and it was lots of fun.
  • I enjoyed the program and though it presented a unique learning experience. I now feel more comfortable dealing with myself and others.



  • "This made us closer by knowing how to get along with others. There is a lot of value to the Colors."
  • "This system brought us closer together as a team and helped us to learn about each other's differences. Issues within our team were so much easier to deal with because we knew where one another was coming from."
  • "Not only was it a good bonding experience, but it was also the only time we ever actually sat down and learned about each other."
  • "It helped me relate to not only my team better, but to understand myself and how I become frustrated much easier with certain things and people."
  • "I think it helped all the girls try to understand that we have different ways of doing things and not to get angry at each other. When we got upset with each other, we would say something about our Colors and that would help us through the situation."
  • "It gave the team something that we could use to help each other when we weren't doing our best."
  • "It made me understand that other people have different "hot buttons" and how to get along better."

    This was a great experience. It helped me realize how different people think and look at things differently.

  • Very well presented and a fun activity.

Athletic Boards:

  • The relevance to sport was well explained.
  • Valuable planning and understanding tool. Simple to follow and enlightening.
    Very interesting and revealing.
  • Extremely useful exercise - it was very important that the exercise was focused on sport development & effects of "colors" on our sport.
  • Understanding people is key to success. Good small group work and lecture balance.
    Awesome; should be taught in Business Schools, as part of organizational behavior component. I would add this program as part of a hiring process in my future business endeavors.
  • I appreciated the opportunity to learn more about group members with a direction to improved operations.
