Kolbe & the conative connection

Kolbe measures your instinctive way of doing things and the result is called your MO (method of operation). It is the only validated assessment that measures a person’s conative strengths. Gain greater understanding of your own human nature and begin the process of maximizing your potential. Find what’s right about you.

Book Summary of The E-Myth Revisited by Michael Gerber

Within the first 5 years, 80% of businesses fail. Why is it that when we live in the information age, with almost all of the information needed to succeed available for free, 80% of businesses are still failing?

The E-myth is that most people who start businesses are entrepreneurs risking capital to make a profit. When in reality most people who start businesses are technicians, people who were good at an aspect of their job and decided to start their own show. The Fatal Assumption is that if you understand the technical work of a business, you understand a business that does that technical work. This is not true. There’s a lot that goes on with a business that a technician will not understand. The issue is that most people set up their businesses as people dependent when they need to be systems dependent. Which means setting up systems and procedures that require people with the minimum amount of skills to keep it operating at a high level.
