How Do Colors Affect Us?

According to October issue of The Watchtower Magazine, “Red has very high visibility.  Red has often been associated with energy, …  .  It is an emotionally intense color and can enhance human metabolism, …  .   Green prompts a reaction opposite to that of red, for it slows metabolism and produces a calming effect. … White is often associated with light, safety, and cleanness.  …  Color can help us remember important concepts. …”

Good things to remember when teaching/mentoring/coaching.

Mentoring – Giving and Receiving

There are many tools available to help each of us. They include personal phone calls, texting, emailing, videos, podcasts, conference calls, etc.

 

Some of us may be mentors, leaders, directors who utilize these tools to reach out to our downline, distributors, marketing assistants — those we are helping, mentoring. We may be diligent in doing that, even when we are not in our regular routine. Rarely can we use all of these tools at the same time, and it is important to realize that not all people respond to a certain type of mentoring the same way. Some need personal phone calls, some are good with just a video, some do better with conference calls and some need one on one. We may need a different form of help at a different time in our life.

 

We as mentors need to do what we can to reach those we are mentoring – make sure they understand that we are trying to reach them, what we are trying to teach them; and learn which way they learn best. Then we can better help others.

 

Being coachable is also an important part of being mentored. We are not only mentors, but we too are always being mentored. We need to be teachable. We need to let our mentors know when we need more help and what that is. We need to realize that our mentors are working hard to help us, and show our appreciation for all the work they do. If we are having a hard time with a certain type of learning, then it would be helpful to let our marketing executive or director know. This will allow him or her to adjust how they are training us to be more beneficial.
