Assessing Instinctive Strengths
The first step in the Kolbe System is to determine the instinctive traits within an organization. This is done with the Kolbe ATM Index, a 36-question assessment which measures and describes the natural way a person takes purposeful action in four distinctive behavior patterns, or Action Modes®:
Fact Finder - Ways of gathering information
Follow Thru - Ways of arranging and designing
Quick Start - Ways of dealing with risk and uncertainty
Implementor - Ways of handling space and tangibles
The four-number Index result identifies an individual’s natural tendencies in each Action Mode and determines his or her modus operandi or MO. The numerical values indicate how a person uses their instincts to prevent problems, respond to opportunities and initiate solutions.
Building Successful Teams
Achieving a diverse mix of instinctive talent on your team will do more to help you meet your organization’s goals than almost any other factor. The Kolbe TeamSuccess® program of seminars and consulting sessions is designed to help an organization find the ideal formula for true team synergy. Kolbe Index results can also be used to generate
the full suite of Kolbe’s Leadership AnalyticsTM (LEAN) solutions, which offer a quantifiable diagnosis of obstacles to team productivity and efficiency. LEAN solutions may be ordered from Kolbe Corp or accessed through the WAREwithal Team Tactix® module.
improving Hiring and Retention
Selecting job candidates who have the highest potential for success can be a challenging task. Kolbe RightFitTM provides a proven system for measuring the methods of problem solving the position requires, and defining the instinctive traits of an ideal candidate. Individual applicants are assessed and graded based on how closely their Index results match the profile, or Range of SuccessTM report. RightFit can also be customized for specific hiring needs such as replicating top performers, filling unique positions or replacing critical team members. The RightFit system is compliant with EEOC guidelines and is free of gender, race, and age bias.
Neuroscience of Conation
Kolbe and Wigton used a protocol developed for an earlier study by ASU that identified neuropathway patterns related to conative energy in the brain in a resting state (Kolbe & Balthazard, 2010), to identify the location in the brain from which conative energy appears to originate.
Kolbe for Life
Gain a competative Edge
With scientifically validated Kolbe technology, identify your athlete’s natural and instinctive talents to optimize individual and team performance.
Kolbe Science helps elite sport teams understand the instinctive talent of each player so coaches and managers can optimally align players’ strengths to win.
Using a protocol developed by Kolbe and Wigton and applied to US Army soldiers, Kolbe science helps you understand how an athlete will act when asked to perform…combining his/her raw talent and natural instincts for a true competitive advantage.
We have used the Kolbe with thousands of Financial professionals, individuals to help them do just that.
The Kolbe Index® is the only known measure of instinct. Kolbe Technology is the only valid and reliable method of assessing the innate strengths of individuals and teams as applied to their instructive methods of complex problem-solving. Understanding these strengths leads to improved effectiveness and efficiency. This makes it different from other measures you may be familiar with (DiSC, Myers Briggs, POP). In our work with top performing teams we have found the Kolbe Index to be incredibly predictive of how people will behave when learning, making decisions or working toward a goal.
During our working sessions you will discover the different ways instinctive talents play off one another. You will also identify each team member’s individual abilities as well as the probability of team success.
Learn positive strategies for trading off individual abilities, taking advantage of individual differences and making the most of knowing who can be counted on to perform necessary tasks.
