However you begin to solve a problem is not the whole picture. It is simply the beginning of your process. Getting your Kolbe results will give you a clear picture about how you spend your energy and the order in which your strengths are deployed.
Understanding your conative strengths within Kolbe allows you to see how your strengths and those of your colleagues and teammates complent and work together. Your results also help understand and strengthen relationships with your employees, board members, and even within your family.
My work with Jennifer included a Kolbe A assessment and consultation, which opened my eyes to why I work the way I do. Approximately two months into working with Jennifer, I found myself considering a new professional opportunity. It was the perfect opportunity to apply my new knowledge of myself during the interview and onboarding period.
Now several months into that position, my self-knowledge and advocacy have provided nearly endless positive returns. I frequently find myself in a state of flow that leaves me energized and ready for the challenges that present themselves.

Advocate for yourself in life and work.
You have likely found yourself adapting to the rules and processes in a school or work environment at somepoint in your life. Whether learning systems to get through school at any level, or to navigate "the way" your workplace requires to get the job done, to trying all the methods out there to be efficient, manage time, and/or to "correctly" communicate with clients and colleagues, your ability to adapt has likely led you to lose sight of your unique way of getting things done.
Conciously or unconsciously adapting to these situations requires you to change your approach to problem solving to fit into a particular situation. This happens to everyone at some point, whether in their personal or professional lives.
Adapting yourself over the long term can lead to burnout, frustration with yourself, and with others.

The Kolbe A is essential to understand an individual's approach to solving problems when the brain is actively engaged.

Absolutely not. The purpose of Kolbe assessments for the individual, job position, or team trainings is to understand the individuals conative strengths and abilities. With individual results plus additional team analysis, results are reviewed to understand and demonstrate how a team as a whole works together.
The Kolbe methedology recognized three parts of the brain. First, the "smarts" or a person's IQ that constitutes lived experience, training, and education. The second part of the brain is the "affective" part of the brain. Most tests you may have taken, Myers Briggs and others, focus on a person's values and feelings. The results of these types of assessments can change over a person's lifetime.
Kolbe assessments looks at the "conative" part of the brain, the way a person actively seeks to solve a problem "their way" as in following their own modus operandi.
Having experienced the transformative change in viewpoint about herself after taking the Kolbe A, she set a goal to become a Certified Kolbe Consultant.

Absolutely. Team trainings introduce individuals to the Kolbe method and their unique results. Once this is understood, groups participating in training get to explore and understand how each person's approach to problem solving is different from, and complementary to, the team. Understanding how each other operates removes assumptions about behavior and can lead to each person speaking up for their needs in communication and achieving team goals.
