Kolbe is NOT a Glorified Personality Test
Personality tests measure how you feel about things. A Kolbe Assessment is an online test that measures how you do things. So unlike personality tests that give you results based on your feelings and emotions, Kolbe’s results are far more useful. It will show you what you should (and should not) do. It will confirm your suspicions as to what you’re really good at and give you insights as to why you hate doing some tasks. That is because your Kolbe index measures the instinctive way you do things.
The result of your assessment is called your method of operation – or your Kolbe MO. It is the only validated assessment that measures a person’s conative strengths, which define the way you take action and your approach to productivity. Understanding your MO as your strength and leveraging it to do more in every aspect of your daily life – including running your coaching business – will lead to significant insights and personal growth.
Knowing your Kolbe MO will open up a world of possibilities and a path for growing your business and working with your clients that makes sense to and for you. How? Your Kolbe results will give you permission to lean into your inherent strengths and forgo the rest.
Your Kolbe Assessment
The assessment itself is easy. It is a 20-minute, multiple-choice quiz that you take online at your convenience. Your results are shared with you and Michael Dickey, our very own Certified Kolbe™ Consultant. Then you have a 90 minute call with Michael where he interprets your results – giving you insight into how your MO is your strength and how to lean into it to make you a better coach and business owner.
The main thing to know about your results is this: Your Kolbe MO won’t change who you are or tell you that the way you take action is wrong. Your result explains who you are already and helps you identify your inherent strengths. And this insight has the power to change how you see yourself and the work you do in profound ways. And that’s mostly because Kolbe isn’t trying to improve you.
It’s highlighting and explaining who you already are.
