Show Notes

#1 | Welcome to the first episode of Leaderhood & Parentship, brought to you by CultureSmith Inc. In this episode, co-hosts Shane Wallace and Morgan Berna explore “the colours,” a behavioural framework created by CultureSmith Inc. All of the information Shane is commonly asked about the colours is covered, from: what the four colours are and what people routinely get wrong about the colours, to the reasons why we often marry our opposing colour and how to safely talk about the colours with your children. Shane also shares a quick way to determine what your colour is. This information is foundational to what will be discussed on future episodes and is the perfect starting point for all new listeners.
