Kolbe is an assessment that helps determine the way individuals use their natural abilities to solve problems. There are three levels of how Kolbe can help your business: create a better understanding of individual talent, develop a better team, and assist in hiring. Our consultants create customized workshops, presentations, and coaching depending on how your organization wants to apply the Kolbe assessments.
Our consultants will issue a Kolbe A index to each member of your team and subsequently conduct a one-on-one interpretation and explanation session. This is designed to help each team member gain an understand of what Kolbe measures, what their results mean, and how they can begin applying their talents to their position.
Alongside individual assessments, we offer a custom workshop for your team. This will generally review Kolbe basics and discuss the interplay of results as a group. The workshop will often focus on team dynamics, communication, adapting for missing skills, and ways to remain efficient when working outside of Kolbe talents, but can be customized to help your team work through any known existing problem-solving issues.
A Kolbe B index is designed to measure an individual’s perception of their own job responsibilities. Our consultants will work with your team members to understand and compare Kolbe A™ and Kolbe B results. This can help each team member recognize when they are trying to perform contrary to their natural strengths and abilities.
Different tasks required by different roles require different strengths. The Kolbe C Index measures the functional expectations of a specific position. Our consultants will compare Kolbe A results from each candidate with Kolbe C results to help reveals how a candidate’s strengths line up with the demands of the job.
