Kolbe Assessment Workshop: Unlock Your Instinctive Superpowers for Success

November 8, 2022 @ 8:00 am - 9:30 am CST - $35 – $55

In-Person or Virtual
  • $35 (members) | $55 (non-members) non-refundable (includes assessment)

Looking to dive further into professional development topics of interest? Join our small group format with Kim Brown and Ben Bina, Kolbe Certified Business Consultants for facilitated reflection, skill building and peer-to-peer learning.

The Kolbe is an assessment tool for both personal & professional development, as well as a valuable resource to businesses to strategize in recruiting, retention, team-building and organizational strategy. 

Attendees will learn about the Kolbe Assessment and its benefits. This uniquely designed session was created especially for TeamWomen members to provide them an easy, affordable opportunity to take the Kolbe A Index and receive educational insights from two certified consultants in this 90-minute presentation.  This presentation can accommodate 50 attendees (and in-person participation is preferred).  Completing the Kolbe assessment before the presentation is highly recommended and links will be emailed to registrants.  

The Kolbe assessment is the only assessment to measure an individual’s conative strength. When it comes to the Kolbe, there are no right or wrong answers. The Kolbe provides deeper insight into how you operate instinctively so you can use your natural skills to your advantage. 

As the Kolbe website describes, “Philosophers such as Plato knew there were three parts of the human mind. Philosophers since then have agreed. Two of them are well known, discussed[,] and identified. The third is the hidden key to improving human performance.” The first two parts are cognitive and affective; the third part is conative. The Kolbe Team has researched extensively to better understand how it works, how to measure it, and how this can benefit others. 

Your conative mind contains the instincts and innate attributes that define your natural, instinctive method of operation, referred to as your MO. When you work within your natural style, you are more productive and energized. We will use Kolbe to identify your instinctive strengths, explain them, analyze how they align with tasks and other people, and offer practical solutions to put them into practice. The benefit of the Kolbe impacts every aspect of life, from better performance in the workplace, to team performance to personal relationships.
