This is our first week of the Workshop A. We talked about the True Color Test. This Test tells you what your color is out of Orange, Green, Blue, and Gold. Each color represents different characteristics. It can help you figure out how you learn best and what strengths you bring to a team. It also helps you decide what jobs you might like or tasks that you prefer. I am Gold which means we like to work before play, we care about traditions, and we like things organized.
Today was our 1st day of the Adult Workshop. We talked about personalities and learning styles. We did a color test that helped us see our different styles and characteristics. I am a Gold so I like keeping things in order and structure. My secondary color is Blue so I am caring and a natural poet! I am also serious and tend to be more traditional and conservative.
To start the Workshop we talked about the orientation packet and our learning styles. It is important to know your learning style so you can be your best! If you are at a job and the boss starts telling you some things you need to do, but you are a visual learner, then you can use your self-advocacy skills to speak up and let your boss know you will do a better job if you can put the tasks on a checklist.
Next we also learned about safety at work, home, and the community. In order to be safe you may need to practice the safety skills, like how to say no.
