Last week I wrote about the simplest version of the ‘language’ we use across all our Birkman-powered products: the 4 colours
The problem is that, unless you’re using the language on a daily basis, it can be tricky trying to remember what each colour means…
Here’s a couple of simple ‘anchors’ we use, to help you remember!
Anchor: Blue skies - as in ‘blue sky thinking’
Remember, Blue is all about thinking, creativity, and innovation. It’s the colour associated with strategy and new ideas.
A better picture of the future.
Anchor: Fire engines - as in urgent action
Remember, Red is all about practical, hands-on activity and getting things done. Like a fire crew, the focus is on completing the job as quickly as possible.
Making an impact, right now.
Anchor: Yellowing paper - as in keeping records and past evidence but also Gold - as in value in stability, security and reliability
Remember, Yellow is all about proper order, keeping things organised and running smoothly, and stable processes.
Keeping track, to stay on track.
Anchor: Spring - as in new life, new potential & possibilities but also Dollar bills - as in selling and deal-making
Remember, Green is all about enthusiastic engagement with other people, motivating and interacting, selling objects, services or ideas.
Seeking and seizing opportunities.
4 colours, 4 different approaches to life and work. You probably relate most to the colour of your Diamond on the Grid (Usual Behaviour), but what does the position of your Circle (Underlying Need) tell you?
