We use the Kolbe A™ Index.
All Kolbe materials have been developed by Kathy Kolbe and Kolbe Corp. At The Instinctive Advantage, our job is to bring this content to life. Every journey into Kolbe starts with the Kolbe A™ Index. Your answers to this 36-item questionnaire reveal how you take action, instinctually. Actions are organized into four innate categories, represented by the four Kolbe Action Modes®.
To capitalize on the power of instincts.
Skills can be taught and aspects of personality can change, but instincts are hardwired. Because Kolbe Wisdom™ is based on instincts, it’s a proven way for companies to determine the adequacy of potential candidates for specific jobs, create highly synergistic teams, and forecast potential team performance.
