Better Performance With the Kolbe ATM Assessment

People perform their best when they’re free to trust their instincts. Personal assessment tools have historically focused on measuring the cognitive (IQ) and affective (personality) parts of the mind. While these tools are helpful in hiring and selection, they can’t measure the instinctive or conative dimension of the mind which is far more predictive of actual performance.

Kolbe A ResultValidated by more than 30 years of case studies and academic research, the Kolbe ATM Index measures four instinctive patterns of behavior, or Action Modes®, which determine an individual’s natural method of problem solving:

  • Fact Finder – ways of gathering and sharing information
  • Follow Through – ways of arranging and designing
  • Quick Start – ways of dealing with risk and uncertainty
  • Implementor – ways of handling space and tangibles

Unlike personality tests, which tell you what’s wrong with you and how to change it, Kolbe tells you what’s right with you and how to make the most of it. We are most productive, work with less stress, and get a greater sense of accomplishment when tasks are done in ways that are true to our instinctive nature.

Nearly one million individuals on five continents have completed Kolbe ATM index.  Kolbe is recognized by many Fortune 500 Companies, business executives, government leaders, universities, professional sports teams, nonprofits, management consultants, bestselling authors, surgeons, and job holders to maximize performance and increase productivity through identifying, understanding and using conative talents.

The Kolbe SystemTM analyzes the way people take purposeful action and provides strategies for improving individual and group performance. As a Kolbe CertifiedTM Consultant, I have the unique tools, training and expertise to help you:

Consultation with Silvia provided me the insights I needed to move my business to the next level

Silvia is a thorough and very knowledgeable Kolbe Certified Consultant. The insight she provided during our consultation session was of great value. This is truly a springboard to a deeper understanding of my key strengths and the value that I provide to my clients.

Silvia’s insights made a huge difference!

I received my Kolbe A™ Index results before meeting Silvia, and I thought I had a good understanding of what it meant after reading and interpreting my Kolbe results on my own. I found the results interesting but I didn’t feel like I gained any real insight. Silvia told me about her becoming Kolbe Certified Consultant, and she was so excited about it. Her enthusiasm made me think that I must have missed something…if she was this excited, there must be more to the Kolbe Index than I realized! So I agreed to meet with her and have her review my results. WOW! I am SO glad I decided to see what had her so excited… because now I know! She was able to help me understand why I was struggling in a few areas and, using my Kolbe results, she helped me know how I can handle those situations successfully in the future. Silvia helped me understand the results better, but more importantly, she helped me apply them to my daily personal and professional life. I enjoyed this experience so much that I am going to work through a different Kolbe assessment with Silvia!

Thanks so much for reminding me about my unique strengths. Your diligence in your plan is something I admire, but if I tried to work like you I would pass out. hehe! It’s great to understand MY best way of running my business. I am now very aware of how I work and how to create my best results. I’m also more aware of how people are and trying to figure out what they need. I move on quickly. It is great. My whole mindset on things has turned a corner and I’m starting to see more sales. Thanks so much for all your help.

Lynette Donovan

I’m blown away… at first I didn’t think the Kolbe could really be that insightful but not only was it helpful, but I’ve seen how badly I beat myself up for being something I’m not instead of embracing my true strengths… even when I got the strengths presented to me. I still managed to look at it in terms of what I’m not. I love how God uses things to help us bring light to what is in darkness and shapes us into the person we were created to be. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU Silvia!!!


Thank you for the video, Silvia. That helped a lot. Now I am going to use my Kolbe strengths – specify, adapt, modify and restore – to describe to my clients what I have to offer them.

Jane H.S.

WOW! Thank you so much Silvia! I really appreciate your thorough answers, it’s like you KNOW me? I resisted taking the Kolbe assessment last year when I found out about it, but it has done nothing but grow me in the right direction in a short time and your answers just helped me grow even more. I feel like I’ve already gotten my money worth just from talking to you, everything else is all a bonus for me.


Silvia Pencak your video has been SO helpful! I’ve watched 4 times & taken notes as ideas come to me on how to interpret and use my strengths. Thank you!


Thank you Silvia! Having my Kolbe result was enlightening & freeing and you just helped to illuminate it more.


Hi Silvia! I am very blessed to have you give me a deeper understanding as to how to read the Kolbe A results. Thank you!


I just watched video and it was great! Thank you so much! It has me thinking though… LOL! Thank you Silvia!
