A Kolbe profile measures the way someone gets things done naturally; whether they force themselves to do things in a way that goes against their grain, or whether they use their natural energy to achieve results harmoniously.
Presenter Ross Slater of Metris Group Inc. will help attendees learn how to use their strengths for greater focus and productivity, attain maximum leverage from their time, build a better team, better understand how to work successfully with their customers, and even improve their family life, all based on doing what they do best.
Following the general meeting, Slater will lead an interactive breakout session where attendees can deepen their understanding of Kolbe profiles by experiencing a predictive demonstration of native talents in action, i.e.: using their natural impulses/resolve to achieve their goals.
According to Kolbe practitioners, once a leader has mastered this approach, he will find it easier to hire the right people, build a more productive team, and manage more effectively.
Another highlight of this year’s conference is “Zap the Gap,” a fascinating presentation by Larry Johnson and Meagan Johnson of the Johnson Training Group. This Baby Boomer father and Gen-X daughter will share their distinctive perspectives on how members of their respective generations approach the business/work world; demonstrating how each understands, communicates, motivates, and manages different generations in the workplace.
For owners struggling to maintain productivity and minimize disruption with staffs comprising dissimilar age groups and attitudes, this session will undoubtedly provide numerous real world takeaways. PN
