Here are some of our own resources as well as a few of our favourite sites, offering a range of ideas, advice and techniques to support your development.
Keeping Clarity4D® Alive
We meet so many people who leave our Clarity4D® events having had a fantastic learning experience, yet they then get sucked back into the manic day-to-day of working life. Sound familiar?
The following links contain helpful resources, guides and activities that you can use within your team to make sure that learning from the Clarity4D® profile continues long after the event.
RESOURCE: An Overview of Clarity4D
Whether you’d like to refresh yourself on key information or a reminder on the four colour energies and their traits, we’ve got you covered with our handy debrief pack!
RESOURCE: Adapting and Connecting With Others
Clarity4D is about self-awareness; and then using this self-awareness to more successfully adapt and connect in our interactions with others. This one page guide succinctly summarises some colourful information to be mindful of.
RESOURCE: Create Your Clarity4D Team Map
Use the template below to create your very own Clarity4D Team Map. Many teams display their map in a prominent position as a great visual reminder of how to adapt and connect more successfully with each other.
TEAM ACTIVITY: Communicating with Impact
A great follow-up activity to any Clarity4D® event. Ever wondered how you could better tune in for even more effective communication with your team? Or how to tell those around you exactly how you’d prefer them to communicate with you? Well now’s your chance to find out!
TEAM ACTIVITY: Talking About Clarity4D
Lots of teams ask us “How can we keep the focus on Clarity4D once the initial buzz dies down?”…and the answer is often to simply keep talking about it! In this activity, you’ll find 10 talking points to use during your team time; either all at once (although that might take a while), or you could pick out a couple to put on each agenda across a few team meetings.
TEAM ACTIVITY: Your Value to the Team
This is one of our ultimate favourites, because it gives each and every team the opportunity to do something that they seldom do: offer each other positive and constructive feedback! Find out what your team sees as your biggest value…chances are, you’ll be surprised.
TEAM ACTIVITY: Leveraging Strengths & Hidden Potential
Once you have reflected on your Clarity4D profile, this can be a great activity to use the balance provided from the Strengths and Hidden Potential sections. Use it to hone in on how to leverage what each person is great at and develop the things they want to focus on, then commit to action both individually and for the team.
