What is a Professional Learning Community?

Equilibria E-Colors

Knowledge of E-Colors leads to a heightened awareness that we do not all think and act the same and that we all have different communication styles and behavioral tendencies that are often largely linked to our personality.

The E-Colors process helps to identify different personality styles, which enables people to better understand themselves and those around them.
