About this Book

"Pure Instinct" is a study that enriches and enhances our knowledge of a little understood but important managerial tool: instinct. Although instinct is eschewed by academics because it evades quantification and analysis, Kolbe maintains that "our best decisions and greatest sense of accomplishment come when we act on instinct." She crafts a matrix showing four types of instinct (probing, patterning, innovating and demonstrating) with the Kolbe Conative Index's (the KCI) four action modes: fact finder, follow through, quick start and implementor.
