  1. The colour of learning
    There are various theories on the psychology of colour. No one colour mix is right for every person, every room or every purpose. But creating the right environment does mean being prepared to challenge the norm of office beige. For example, if your room has limited natural light and will be used for various types of training, you might like to try sunshine yellow accented by a warm red – good for energy, empowerment and a positive atmosphere.

    For more information on the use of colours go to: or (go to colour then select psychology).

    You might also want to think about plants, posters, furnishings, lighting, music, aromas and much more, in which case try the Accelerated Learning Handbook by Dave Meier.
