We […] truly appreciated her taking the time to come out and show us how to apply this knowledge for a more streamlined, harmonious, profitable business environment!

I was recommended to Vikki by a mutual friend and out of curiosity wanted to look into the Kolbe testing for both myself and my company’s General Manager. We have a team that works well together, but in a growing small business, things are always changing, evolving, and improving, and I wanted to make certain that I was doing my part to best support my team. We took our tests (I dove right in, just like my strengths may suggest) and my GM spent two days researching it before completing his portion (just like his results would confirm as “normal”) and while we had a laugh about our inherent strengths and tendencies, it seriously helped us to work together in a more streamlined way that I’m seeing dividends on. My team knows what I’m great at and supports the small details to make sure I stay focused on the big picture, while I know that they respond best and are more innovative when given time and autonomy to figure it out for themselves rather than me attempt to fumble out a solution. We loved having Vikki explain our results in greater detail and truly appreciated her taking the time to come out and show us how to apply this knowledge for a more streamlined, harmonious, profitable business environment! Thank you, Vikki!

I’m a big believer in Kolbe, and so much appreciate the great work Vikki has done for us in that realm.

For nearly two decades, I have been a huge fan of the Kolbe Index. Everyone in my firm takes this assessment so they can learn how they naturally approach tasks and projects, as well as understand what frustrates, pleases and motivates them. With this information, we can learn about each other. I was so excited to find Vikki, a Kolbe Certified Specialist, at Upside Business Solutions right here in Las Vegas. She was able to take my entire team’s Kolbe Index results and put together a group presentation to further our understanding of the Kolbe findings and give us direction on how to make the most of them. With all team members working within their unique abilities and styles, productivity and job satisfaction are maximized. I’m a big believer in Kolbe, and so much appreciate the great work Vikki has done for us in that realm.

Vikki’s full explanation of the system made it easy to understand and translate to our needs.

Vikki, came to our office to explain the Kolbe system to myself, my Business Partner and our Business Manager and what we can expect from our job and employees. We were intrigued as to how this could help us, as we have been working together for over 10 years. Well, we were surprised and delighted to find out how each of us has our own style and how that will help us work better to together. We found out each of us has our own way of looking at something, and why sometimes, it seems that it takes a while to make decisions. Now that Vikki has explained how we interact with each of us, we have started to implement what she has shown us through the Kolbe system and have seen a marked improvement in productivity.

Vikki was professional and fun to work with. Vikki’s full explanation of the system made it easy to understand and translate to our needs. I highly recommend having your staff and new hires complete the Kolbe system to make sure they are the right fit for your business.

Vikki’s coaching that goes with the assessment is invaluable.

Recently, I took the Kolbe assessment with Vikki Kempker at Upside Business Solutions. I was thrilled to see the results. It helped clarify why I collect lost of facts before taking action, and how I can be even more efficient. I was in a group who also took the assessment. It helped me understand and appreciate how each of us is different in how we process things, and our communication improved as a result. I recommend this for everyone personally and especially for those who hire employees. Vikki’s coaching that goes with the assessment is invaluable. Thank you Upside Business Solutions!

Thank you Upside Business Solutions for simplifying my life!

I have been attempting to create job descriptions for most of my 35 years in business. Never seem to be able to get past the infinite details needed to get started. Turned the project over to Vikki and the first two were completed within a week with minimal interruption in my workday. Vikki is amazingly knowledgeable and very professional in the way she handles every process. I am looking forward to finishing the remaining job descriptions and moving on to the safety manual. Thank you Vikki & Upside Business Solutions for simplifying my life.

I’d recommend Vikki Kempker to anyone who is in a position to get more done with and through all different types of people.

Taking the KOLBE assessment helped me understand why I jump on some responsibilities and procrastinate about others. It also explained why I may frustrate people who need more detail than I do in making decisions and moving forward. Vikki Kempker’s presentation about the KOLBE assessment and how to apply it to my business relationships was engaging, enlightening and the most valuable part of the assessment. I’d recommend Vikki Kempker to anyone who is in a position to get more done with and through all different types of people.

Upside Business Solutions is a must have for any company that values their people and their bottom line.

As an HR Professional, knowing which services carry merit for my clients is important. The Kolbe testing that Upside Business Solutions provides is invaluable in many areas.  When choosing a new candidate, the information provided lets the Employer know if the candidate in question can handle the position and the personalities of the potential co-workers.  When used with existing employees, the Kolbe ratings make team creation viable, as we are able to see strengths and weaknesses, and match the staff accordingly to the benefit of all. This data makes creating job descriptions much easier.

Upside Business Solutions is a must have for any company that values their people and their bottom line.
