Are you doing what comes naturally?

I’m passionate about Kolbe!

Kolbe is an assessment tool to measure your instinctive way of doing things. And we all have own way. The result is called your Mode of Operation (MO). It reveals how you execute, not your IQ or personality. It measures the intrinsic way you take action when you strive. This applies to actions like making a decision, finding a solution or creating something new.

What Kolbe did for me

Kolbe has been around since 1974, when Kathy Kolbe converted her theory into a tool. I was introduced to it in 1998 by my business coach when I was pivoting my business for the first time (I'm currently on pivot #5 as we continuously refine how we deliver our services).😊

The results were incredibly insightful. Kolbe explained comments I received when I was younger, like “Why don’t you finish what you start before starting something new?” Or “You’re so creative, you’re always thinking outside the box!”

Kolbe was quite specific and authentic to me. And our team and clients find it a validating reflection for them as well.

What I discovered is my natural way of doing things—my action style, my MO.

What Kolbe can do for you

By aligning your action style and goals, you can save time and energy… and be more productive with less stress and tension (who doesn't want that)!

My assessment results helped me to rethink the positioning of my business based on the strengths revealed. It allowed me to let go of certain tasks and roles and to build an A-team to support myself, and my business goals. And I haven’t looked back.

Knowing your Kolbe Index can help you to recharge your energy in the most efficient way to avoid burn-out. This is something I make a point of sharing with all my clients.

Your Kolbe Index

Every client we work with knows their Kolbe Index. And just as importantly, they know mine.

Can you imagine everyone knowing how they can authentically be themselves and thrive in a world that frequently likes to label or limit us? Your natural style sets you apart as a leader and is reflected in your unique value proposition (UVP) as a business owner. The way you do what you do is as unique as your fingerprints.
