GreenBlueRed Foundation - Art of Conscious Communication
The GreenBlueRed® Foundation training is a pre module of a broader Conscious Communication training package, which gives you easy access to get familiar to the GBR method.
The GreenBlueRed® Foundation training will give you a solid overview of the GreenBlueRed method, its value and potential. Participants can immediately use the learnt techniques in their work and personal lives.
" I use the insights from this almost daily at work to lead Finnair's design projects. "
Maria Lumiaho - Design Director at Finnair
Is this just another personality model or a "business horoscope" that will put us in a new box?
Nope. GreenBlueRed® is a behavioural model, a new communication language that anyone learns to understand in 3 hours.
During this interactive 3h training you will learn the basics of the GBR method. You will be able to recognize the three colours of communication and get an idea of how to use them in practice. You will be able to analyze your behaviour and consciously choose your behaviour in future communication situations. This method works in all interactions from sales to customer service and teamwork.
What is GreenBlueRed?
All communication can be colour coded with three colours, regardless of the channel.
Green communication focuses on other people’s feelings, hopes or thoughts. It is also known as empathy.
Blue communication is telling others about yourself: your knowledge, opinions or ideas.
Red communication is about actions that can be shared, for example, suggestions, decisions or agreements.
How is this any different to other corporate communication trainings?
We are not boring.
This means that there are no tedious theory sessions. You'll study the theory in your own time before the workshop with high-quality online videos. In the workshop, you'll learn in an engaging and energising hands-on way, not just by listening. Our trainers educate and entertain at the same time.
We use only behavioural models - not personality models.
We don’t put people in a box. You always have the freedom to choose the way you behave and communicate.
We use action-learning.
Everything you learn can be implemented instantly in your daily work and personal life, with a “personal-trainer” like approach after the trainings through email activations.
We are ethically and psychologically safe.
This means that our team develops, customises and delivers training and coaching covering the widest range of communication expertise in the industry. The core is the psychological and emotional safety of the participants so that they can to learn how to deal with even tricky and difficult topics.

Who are we?

To do this we need to upgrade the quality of our exchanges, to make our communication more effective and respectful. We believe this can be achieved by empowering driven individuals and organisations with the right tools and techniques, which they can use to benefit from the collective intelligence of their communities. Our practices are based on the GreenBlueRed® framework and designed to enable meaningful conversations, both online and face-to-face.
