Instinctive Action: How to Maximize Personal Productivity and Energy

Instinctive Action: How to Maximize Personal Productivity and Energy

This is Episode 49 of This Old New Business weekly business podcast with Jeff Korhan.

In this episode former entrepreneur turned Kolbe Certified growth consultant and team builder Jason Cupp sits down to discuss how undertanding your instintive action mode(s) can favorably impact productivity and energy.

Jason notes there are many roads one can take to a destination, with none of them being wrong or right. The question is which one is right for you? That understanding can be particularly valuable for business leaders and people working in teams.

Instinctive Action Modes Never Change

Instinctive Action: How to Maximize Personal Productivity and EnergyWhile all of us acquire knowledge and learn and develop skills over a lifetime, our natural or instinctive action mode(s) never change. As measured by the Kolbe A Index, most of us have a dominant action mode that will reliably lead us to our greatest levels of productivity and energy.

These four Kolbe action modes include:

  • Fact Finder – people that need facts to make decisions
  • Follow Through – people that need structure or proven processes to follow
  • Quick  Start – those of us that succeed by trusting our intuition
  • Implementor – tactical people that want to build a model or show a method for succeeding

Listen in as Jason Cupp shares the nuances of how greater self-awareness and understanding of the instinctive action modes of your team members will help you leverage your most valuable business asset, the people that are its foundation. 

I’d love to hear your thoughts on instinctive action modes.  Meet me over on Twitter to take the conversation further.
