What about Replacing A "Super Star?" We all have team members that have starring roles in our practices. Over the course of time, we all strive to eventually have a team of nothing but Super Stars. Super Stars unfortunately don't stay with us forever. If one of your Super Stars is leaving your practice, the best thing you can do before he or she leaves is make sure that you have a Kolbe `A' profile on them. This will help you set up the RightFit more accurately for the new person taking their place. Test the Super Star in order to hire another one!

Sequence of Events for the AutomaticHiring TM Process 1) Put together a position profile for the job by using Kolbe RightFitTM. See the Appendix A RightFit TM for more details regarding that process. If you have a Kolbe Rep., contact them. If you need a representative go to www.warewithal.com and email Kolbe to get the ball rolling. Appendix E contains examples of actual RightFit TM profiles for a basic front office dental team member, a patient coordinator/phone expert position, a key team member-implementer position, and the BCM Program assistant. 2) After the RightFit TM profile has been set-up, you will receive a detailed description of the profile's attributes from Kolbe. Use this to formulate your Craig's list ad which will have two components. See Example Appendix A. Part 1) the typical hard facts: pay range, benefits, hours, duties, specific things you know they will be doing PLUS Part 2) the characteristics listed from the RightFit TM profile. That list will describe the "doing" side of the job which potential team members can review to see if they feel they fit the description. This detailed information also increases response to your advertisement since the potential team member will have never seen anything else like it and will assume that you are different from other employers. 3) If you are going to also use printed media classifieds, prepare a very short ad listing job title, salary range, and your toll free message line with appropriate extension (see example cost effective classified Appendix B). Use the same detailed description that you post on Craig's list to put on the message line recording about the job. For major daily newspapers, post on Sunday only. 4) Call/email your Kolbe rep and purchase a 10 pack of Kolbe "A's" 5) Post-your description in all the job categories that might apply at Craig's List. At $25 per listing, be liberal with where you think a suitable candidate may be looking. 6) In your Craig's list ad and on the message line recording, state that the resume, 3 professional and personal references, and cover letter are

ŠBCM


to be sent by email/fax only so that YOU don't waste phone time on this first step. 7) The appropriate individual reviews resumes as they come in to your AutomaticHiringTM funnel. The resume will give you the cognitive skills (i.e. previous jobs, training, and experience). You should also read the section entitled "Previous experience" to change your thinking around how critical it is to have previous dental experience when marketing and sales is involved. 8) Invite the candidates who have the right background to take the Kolbe A by sending them an email with the Kolbe test credit. Have them forward you the result. a. Note: Previously, I would have had each candidate do the lengthy application first, and then they would complete the Kolbe A. That's a waste of everyone's time since if they fail the p rofile match; you have wasted your time (and t heirs) w ith t he 1 engthy application. 9) The Kolbe invitation can be emailed to the candidate directly and they will take the test online outside your office and forward you the results. I O)Notify your Kolbe account representative ofthe name of each candidate as they submit their test results. Kolbe will then grade each candidate (included in the RightFit TM fee) against the profile and send you the results (A through F). If they score B- or lower, they are automatically not hired and get a short "thank you for your time" email or fax. I l )For the candidates that are a good match based on the Kolbe, send them the lengthy application to fill out (Appendix C). The application will likely need to be tweaked based on the position you are hiring. Ask them to email a photo of their smile. Remember, if they don't have a nice smile you will have to invest in giving them one. 12)If you are unsure on any candidate, a phone interview may be the next step. See the AutomaticHiring TM telephone interview sheet. (Appendix D).

Don't be surprised if you get back "failing" grades on candidates who have great looking resumes but simply don't match the profile. Some may even have significant past dental experience. Remember, you are taking what you see on paper (the subjective) and evaluating the candidate objectively with Kolbe for how they will perform the "doing" of their position. This can be tough to swallow since it is the exact opposite of how most dentists and office managers have hired in the past or were trained to hire.

"Hire Slow. Fire Fast" Based on multiple observations in many different types of businesses, it's better to be willing to wait for someone with the right traits and "fit" versus hiring too quickly (regardless of experience) only to find. that they don't perform very well since they will have to operate outside their preference for "doing" in the job. People can always temporarily operate against their tendencies (necessity is the mother of invention, right?) but over many years that type of effort leads to either poor performance, you eventually having to fire the employee, or the employee leaves because they didn't really like their daily role in your business as they were acting against their built in nature. 13)Invite all of the B minuses and higher in for an interview (DentalSurvivor TM ) on the same day and at the same time. Send out the invitation by email or fax. (Appendix D) 14)Dental Survivor TM ( see summary sheet for that day) is the day that you put e verything t ogether on who a re t he best c hoices for t he pos ition. TM ahead You wi 11 not let the interviewee's know about D ental Survivor of time. Tell each candidate that they should review the job description, any relevant information you may have sent them, and y our p ractice website s o they ar e p repared to fully discuss why t hey ar e the right person for the job. That is hint enough that they need to be prepared. 15) On "Survivor" day, they will all be in the same room. You will introduce yourself (doctor or practice manager); give your background

ŠBCM


talk about the practice and the job. Finally they will answer the practical questions and play DentalSurvivor TM 16)Post DentalSurvivor TM you will go on to schedule appropriate follow-up working interviews, roll playing interviews, staff lunch, etc. 17)Do your reference checks. See the Reference check sheet (Appendix D). Never hire anyone without checking references both personal and professional. In addition, Google each candidate. Finally, if the position involves management in your practice, perform a criminal background check. Google " background check" and many services well pop up selling this service. 18)Hire and start probationary period. Congratulations! You just made it through AutomaticHiring TM for the first time! Welcome to efficient hiring and a way to build your team far more predictably with less hassle, time, energy, risk, and cost.

Kolbe RightFit TM for Hiring What is Kolbe RightFitTM? Big Case Marketing's "AutomaticHiring TM " uses Kolbe's RightFit TM as part of the hiring process. More details are provided in Appendix A. Kolbe RightFit TM makes finding the "right" person for the job easier and less costly as it reduces the chance of a "bad" hire. Statistically proven, it assists you or your office manager in screening and selecting the best job applicants by determining who has the necessary instincts. Personality tests are often difficult to interpret and apply on a real world basis in the dental practice. The Kolbe RightFit TM is applicable to our situations as dentists and it takes away the difficulty of interpretation of all previous personality tests you may have attempted to employ. RightFit TM ends the headache of guessing how well a prospective employee will perform, by rating each candidate on a scale from "A" to "F," and providing information on how the applicant will take action according to job requirements. Using Kolbe provides great insight into how the potential team member operates when it comes to "doing" tasks and components of their job. The resume still plays a role as it gives indications of the cognitive skills and knowledge acquired (past experience) related to the job. In addition, a selection of interview questions relating to your practice is still necessary during the "live" part of the process. That way you make sure the potential team member shares the same values and/or vision of your practice. Here's the triad of information: 1) Subjective (resume, past job experience and training) TM 2) Objective (Kolbe RightFit results) 3) Affective (interview questions that determine whether they share your business values)

Thoughts on Hiring Those with Previous Dental Experience In the dental office, previous dental employment experience can be a help and in quite a few cases a very big hindrance to hiring or even absolute contraindication to hiring. Why hire those with experience? The good news is that if they have experience there will be less training involved, particularly with clinical staff (think assistant). However, even in such a case, in a practice where there is a stream of elective cases outside the "traditional" model of the `crown a year' insurance club, then hiring someone with only basic experience and training may still be better than hiring someone who is hard-wired with preconceived notions about how a practice operates. An assistant that is stuck in the `insurance model' can sink elective cases consistently if she can't get on board with full mouth care. What about decades of experience? The really bad news is that if they have significant experience, they are very likely to have numerous unsavory habits taught to them (or allowed to randomly form without supervision) in all those previous practice(s). Those habits may or may not be changeable. Be careful the Kolbe will help reveal this.

FOR A JOB MOSTLY ABOUT `SALES' AND CASE CLOSING Previous dental experience is the biggest negative when you are seeking to hire a position that relates mostly to sales (think the phone person covering marketing calls, phone staff closing consults and treatment planner/financial closer at the case presentation).

ŠBCM

6


It is highly unlikely that any previous dental j ob prepared them for what you will need from them because so few dental offices are great at sales and marketing. If the staff member's iob is to strictl y close consultation appointments, the less clinical knowledge they have the better. It takes NO clinical knowledge to be a great closer on the phone but it takes a great listener and a great communicator. It is far better to hire someone with great communication skills FIRST then add in the clinical knowledge as time goes by since they won't be using their clinical knowledge as a crutch to get by if a call isn't going the way they want it to. Here's what Chris Mullins and I see routinely with phone monitoring. Those staff members with questionable communication skills (the ones needed for elective cases) that do poorly closing consults on the phone invariably "fill the void" on most calls with clinical jargon talk which decreases consult closes and case acceptance. VERY IMPORTANT: Finally, if the position is purely treatment planning/financial closing, then a background in an environment where the dollar ranges that your practice's cases average is a very good idea. If they haven't been in such an environment, where something they were involved in cost just as much or more than your cases, they must receive training to be comfortable closing treatment in the fee ranges for your office.

Where to Place Your Employment Ads? As of this publication date, there are 3 main ways to get your hiring message to the public. 1) Newspaper classifieds 2) Online resume sites 3) Local Craig's list online classifieds. 1) Daily and Weeklies Print Publications Traditionally, we all are familiar with the use of classified ads in the main daily papers or weekly papers in your area to obtain dental staff. This type of classified is costly especially when a very detailed job listing is required. By using the AutomaticHiring TM system, you can minimize the cost impact of the printed classified by using your toll free message line to describe the job position fully. If newsprint is still a source of potential job candidates in your market, this method will allow you to greatly minimize the cost of the newsprint classified and devote those resources to Kolbe testing the candidates.

ŠBCM

8


2) Online Resume Sites Outside of printed classifieds there are online job sites such as 'lobster," "hotjobs," etc. These sites are geared towards information and professional po sitions. In addition, they tend to be a national type of classified. For both reasons, they are not a good choice for dental office staff Avoid them as response is bad and cost can be higher than local newsprint!

3) Craig's List Local Online Classifieds As of this printing, Craig's list generates the best response in almost all markets for a local position. Other online resume sites don't work that well for local markets. In addition, if someone is about to move to your area, they will still be more likely to look for a position on Craig's list than other online sites. The postings on Craig's list tend to generate response right away as people searching for jobs are looking at the postings all the time when they are active with their search. Each category is $25 a post. It is a good idea to post in multiple categories in which you might find someone that would fit for your office. Remember, you are broadcasting your hiring message to more candidates intentionally so you have better odds of getting a good pool to test and choose from. This is even more important when it comes ŠBCM

to finding someone for your phone or for treatment planning/financial close. For a position in the front office related to complex cases: Post in admin/office, customer service, legal/paralegal, marketing/pr/ad, business/mgmt, medical/health, salon/spa/fitness. For a clinical assisting position: You have fewer choices. Stick to posting in medical/health and salon/spa/fitness.

Because the response tapers off after a week, report in about 10 days if you need to add more candidates to your A utomaticHiring TM 'funnel."

DentalSurvivorTM No, it isn't a Tom Hanks movie but it is a dramatically better way to hire and it is one of the last steps in the hiring process. If all has gone well, you will be down to 5-7 candidates for your job position. After DentalSurvivor TM , you will arrive at 1-3 candidates that you feel are good possible choices. Those last 3 candidates can then have more live meetings with the appropriate staff and/or working interviews. Why include DentalSurvivor TM as part of your hiring process? 7 Reasons: 1) Saves hours of time (reason enough!) 2) Standardizes the interview process 3) Makes potential hires want your position even more 4) Allows you to see every candidate's ability to truly sell themselves (if they can't sell themselves, how will they sell you or your services?) 5) Shows that you are a progressive office since they will have seen nothing else like it 6) Minimizes the b.s. potential, particularly by those with dental office experience 7) Reduces the chance of getting a "dud" as that type of candidate will not survive the process very well ŠBCM


Your DentalSurvivor TM candidates are all appointed to arrive on the same day and same time to your location for the interview. Have all materials and seating ready ahead of time. Greet them as they arrive and ask them to take a seat. Observe their manner and dress. Were they on time? Listen to their speech. How engaging are they? At the exact start time listed, conduct your DentalSurvivor TM interview.

This is the general flow and dialogue for a DentalSurvivor TM interview. I recommend that you record the responses as things will progress quickly. The Office Manger or Doctor leads the DentalSurvivorTM interview. "Welcome, you've made it through an extensive screening process. A little bit about the practice ........ Here's what we do, here's what this job is about.......

ŠBCM

12


Today's flow is pretty simple and straightforward and will go probably more quickly than any interview you've ever had before. I asked everyone to come prepared with having reviewed the job description and the materials that give you insight into what types of dentistry we do and the types of patients we are seeking to help. Before we go into the next steps, are there any questions? Great....... First off....... (The big surprise!) One by one, I want each of_ you to introduce yourself and give me your sales speech on what you bring with you to this job that makes YOU the best match for the position. Note who stands first and who goes last.....also a good reason to record the interview] The second part..... I also have a few short questions including several real world onesinvolving the position. After you complete the questions, you are free to leave. I'll be checking references over the next week and will contact each of you personally shortly thereafter. [Note these questions need to be developed specifically for the position you are hiring.] ŠBCM

13


Once they complete the questions, they leave and then you have time to review the recording and their responses and decide which are invited on to the final stages of interviewing (working interview, staff lunch, role playing phone calls, etc.). Congratulations, you just saved HOURS of time that is normally wasted at the live interview stage.

Kolbe RightFit TM for Hiring

HOW to use Kolbe RightFit: Kolbe RightFit is the program that makes finding the "right" person for the right job easier and less expensive. Statistically proven, it assists companies in screening and selecting the best job applicants by determining who has the necessary instincts. We provide a simple method for selection by analyzing your requirements to create a Range of Success TM specific to the job opening. RightFit ends the headache of guessing how well a prospective employee will perform, by rating each candidate on a scale from "A" to "F," and providing information on how the applicant will take action according to job requirements. Five Steps to using Kolbe RightFit: 1) Define job requirements-supervisor and/or anyone in a position to evaluate the role completes the Kolbe C TM Index 2) Identify instinctive strengths of supervisors-the direct supervisor completes the Kolbe A TM Index 3) Identify instinctive strengths of current employees in the role as high performers to take the Kolbe A T 4 Index 4) Create a Range of Success-all the above information will be used to create the range. TM 5) Screen applicants-candidate will complete Kolbe A 's and will be compared to the range. Each candidate will be given a letter grade from A to F. We recommend hiring employees at a B- or higher ranking. In addition to the ranking of candidates you can also get an indication whether the synergy of the team will be affected negatively or positively by using cooperatives-fellow team members that the person will be working TM with on a regular basis. They will need to answer a Kolbe A index regarding

15


how they, themselves, naturally take action. This featu r e is best used when there are 3 or more Cooperatives available to provide information.

Why do I need it? • Cost Saving-RightFit helped one company save more than $10 million by trimming interviewing and retaining costs. • Employee Retention-one company saw its retention rate of managers increase from 60% to 100%. • Curbs Absenteeism-in companies where RightFit is used, less than 20% of low absenteeism employees were experiencing job stress. • Eliminates Job-related Attrition-one company found that 11.7% of employees hired using other selection methods left the company for job related reasons compared to 0% of employees hired using RightFit. Replacement costs: Insurances companies put the price of turnover for one sales agent between $50,000 and $80,000 which included the outlay for hiring, training and replacing the person. A national accounting firm estimates the turnover of one clerical staff employee can cost as much as $15,000.

WHEN to use Kolbe RightFit: Kolbe Cora's Polic y Statement The Kolbe RightFit system should always be used as one of many criteria in making selection decisions. The RightFit process and the Range of Success TM give you vital information about whether a person's natural talent fits with the demands of a particular position. However, it won't tell you if the person is smart enough or has the experience necessary for the job. Therefore we recommend that you first screen for experience and skills, then use RightFit with the remaining candidates, screening out those that are clearly not a good fit for the position as indicated by the Range of Success. When using Kolbe's products in selection you must use the RightFit system. We are committed to insuring that our services are used in a way that takes the guesswork and individual biases out of selection as much as possible. The primary way to accomplish this goal is to have our clients use RightFit when doing selection rather than simply "eyeballing" individual Kolbe Index results or guessing what a Range of Success or candidate score might be. 16


This means that we will not sell our services or products to clients who we know intend to use them in selection without applying the RightFit system. The RightFit system should not be used as an excuse to let someone go. If someone is a valuable employee who is under-performing RightFit can point the way to getting more out of them. If someone is not doing the job, a manager has to consider many factors to determine whether the problem can be fixed. RightFit itself cannot identify when an employee needs to be replaced. The EEOC guidelines for using the tests in hiring states that job relatedness must be established in advance. By using the RightFit system EEOC regulations are met.

Kolbe RightFitTM for Hiring What is Kolbe RightFit? Kolbe RightFit is the program that makes finding the "right" person for the right job easier and less expensive. Statistically proven, it assists companies in screening and selecting the best job applicants by determining who has the necessary instincts. RightFit ends the headache of guessing how well a prospective employee will perform, by rating each candidate on a scale from "A" to "F," and providing information on how the applicant will take action according to job requirements. Using Kolbe provides great insight into the conative, or doing, dimension of the mind. It will be important to also incorporate the cognitive (thinking) and the affective (feeling) parts into the hiring process. RightFit identifies the conative part, and resumes usually give indications of the cognitive skills and knowledge acquired. Be sure to ask affective questions during the interview to determine if the candidate shares the same values and/or vision of the organization. The Kolbe RightFit Process 1) Identify your current talent • If the supervisor has not already completed the Kolbe A TM Index, he or she must do so. His or her instinctive strengths will be taken into consideration to build the Kolbe Range of SuccessTM • Is the job replicated or unique? A replicated job is one that has at least six people doing the same tasks in very similar conditions, three of whom are clearly top performers. • If this position is unique, there is an option to see how the candidate will fit into your team by adding existing Cooperatives' (teammates') Kolbe A results to the data. Cooperatives are used for true team scenarios versus a replicated job situation. • It is recommended that you speak with your Kolbe Account Representative to discuss High Performer and Cooperative scenarios.

18 ©2008 Kolbe Corp. All Rights Reserved.


2) Define the job requirements • The direct supervisor and/or anyone in a position to evaluate the job completes the Kolbe C TM Index • All parties who evaluate this position's performance (Other Evaluators) will individually complete a Kolbe C Index 3) Create a profile of the ideal candidate •

A Kolbe Range of Success is the profile that identifies the instinctive talents of the ideal candidate • It will include at least one Kolbe A Index completed by the direct supervisor and one Kolbe C Index completed by the same supervisor. • Once all of the Indexes are completed, contact Customer Service at 1800-642-2822 (option 3) or use the Kolbe RightFit Software to build the Kolbe Range of Success. 4) Rate candidates • Candidates take the Kolbe A Index and their results are then run against the Range of Success for the position • Once the candidate has completed the Kolbe A Index, use our software to rate your candidate by going to http://www.warewithal.com/visitors/user_login.cfm Contact Customer Service for questions (1-800-642-2822) • A letter grade from A to F will be given to each candidate and a Candidate Report will be emailed to you. • Kolbe Corp recommends interviewing candidates whose scores are Bor higher. • Remember to consider how all candidates fit into your organization by assessing all three parts of the mind. For personalized assistance, please call your Account Representative to schedule time with a Master Consultant. Fees for these consultants start at $195 per hour.

Kolbe RightFit TM for Hiring - FA Frequently asked questions about identifying current talent: • Does the supervisor need to complete the Kolbe A TM Index before the Kolbe C TM Index? • Is this a replicated job? • What is a High Performer? • How do I choose High Performers? • How many High Performers should we use? • Can we use High Performers from other companies? • What if one High Performer looks different from the others? • What is a Cooperative? • How do Cooperatives affect the Range of Success? • How many Cooperatives should we use? Does the supervisor need to complete the Kolbe A Index before the Kolbe C Index? Yes, the Kolbe A Index is completed first. A permanent name id (12-digit number) is assigned while completing the A Index and is used again when completing the C Index. Is this a replicated job? One question to ask yourself when considering if a position is replicated is, "How many people are doing this job?" A replicated job is one position that multiple people do individually. For example, sales representatives or call center representatives are two jobs that are usually replicated. What is a High Performer? A High Performer is someone who currently does the job at an exemplary level. How do I choose High Performers? First, it is important to define success in measurable criteria for this particular position. Then, select the people who have achieved the highest level of success in the job (past or present). Kolbe Corp will use the Kolbe A results for those High Performers in creating the Range of Success TM that targets candidates with similar instincts.

©2008 Kolbe Corp. All Rights Reserved.

20


How many High Performers should we use? When choosing High Performers, it is best to use a small percentage (maybe 10%) of your total number of employees currently in the job. Additionally, you should use four High Performers when possible. The software will allow you to use only two, but only use that few if necessary. The most important aspects of finding high performers are that these people stand out as exemplary employees-the elite group-and that we have enough high performers to find a pattern of instincts. Can we use High Performers from other companies? No, Kolbe Corp does not share information from other companies. All high performers must come from your own company. What if one High Performer looks different from the others? If one of your High Performers looks different conatively from the others, we recommend you consult your Kolbe Account Representative. Also, do not use an individual if there is a unique reason for his/her success that would be hard to find in the general public. For example, if Jane is the only person who speaks Japanese in her company and as a result has accounts that no other person could compete for, her Kolbe A should be left out. What is a Cooperative? Cooperatives are people who will work closely with the person who will fill the open job. Usually they make up a team. How do Cooperatives affect the Range of Success? Adding Cooperatives to your Range of Success will allow the RightFitTM software to compute the Synergy impact on your team for each candidate you are considering for the position. A candidate can get one of three ratings: Positive, negative, or neutral. We know that Synergistic teams perform better than non-synergistic teams, so you will want candidates who move your team closer to Synergy (positive) or do not affect (neutral) your current Synergy. How many Cooperatives should we use? Since Cooperatives help determine the candidates' impact on a team, there should be at least three Cooperatives. One of the Cooperatives can be the direct supervisor.

Frequently asked questions about defining job requirements:

21 Š2008 Kolbe Corp . All Rights Reserved.


• What is a Kolbe C TM Index? • How many people should complete Kolbe C Indexes? • Does the supervisor need to complete the Kolbe A TM Index before the Kolbe C Index? • How do I complete a Kolbe C Index? • Who completes the Kolbe C Index(es)? • What if one of the Kolbe C Index results for the same job looks different? • What if the Kolbe C Index result is in Contradiction? What is a Kolbe C Index? The Kolbe C Index measures the instincts necessary for a role as defined by the supervisor(s). How many people should complete Kolbe C Indexes? All people who evaluate the job should complete Kolbe C Indexes. Currently, only one person can be designated the Direct Supervisor; however, the other people who evaluate the job performance will be entered into the Range of Success as Other Evaluators. Choose the Direct Supervisor who most defines success for the job. Does the supervisor need to complete the Kolbe A Index before the Kolbe C Index? Yes, the Kolbe A Index is completed first. A permanent name id (12-digit number) is assigned to each individual while completing the A Index and is used again when completing the C Index. How do I complete a Kolbe C Index? When answering the questions for the Kolbe C Index, the index taker should keep in mind the requirements of the job and what is rewarded — not the job as it is being done currently. Who completes the Kolbe C Index(es)? Anyone in a position to evaluate the role will complete a Kolbe C Index. Choose whoever has the greatest effect on the success of the role. Where appropriate we recommend several C Indexes be completed for a single role. Examples of the appropriate use of several C Indexes include when a role is supervised by two people, and when a second-level supervisor evaluates how the role is performed. For additional examples, please contact your Kolbe Representative.

What if one of the Kolbe C Index results for the same job looks different? Compare all of the Kolbe C Index results. If any Action Mode® has a difference of four units or more between the results, it indicates that significantly different requirements for the role were identified. Two options are to leave one of the Kolbe C Index results out of the Range of Success or to complete a new Kolbe C Index if a new understanding of the role requirements is found. What if the Kolbe C Index result is in Contradiction? There are a few potential reasons a result is in Contradiction. First, it could be that the Index taker is unsure of the requirements of the job. Perhaps it is a new position or the Index taker is new to supervising the position. Another reason a result shows Contradiction is because the actual requirement for how a job is to be completed varies significantly on the continuum in one action mode. Frequently asked questions about creating a profile: • Why is the Range of Success (profile) broad in some Action Modes® and narrow in others? • What happens after I tell Kolbe Corp the Range of Success (profile) is ready to be built? • Can I use just a part of the Kolbe RightFit System? Why is the Range of Success (profile) broad in some Action Modes and narrow in others? The RightFit TM software uses data to calculate a range of talents from the information provided. The broader the range, the easier it is for the candidates to get a higher letter grade. What happens after I tell Kolbe Corp the Range of Success (profile) is ready to be built? Kolbe Corp will email you two reports, one called the RightFit Report and one called the Range of Success. The RightFit Report identifies the natural instincts the ideal candidate will demonstrate, and identifies the evaluators whose input resulted in the Range of Success.

help our clients (and ourselves) avoid potential liability by having them use the complete RightFit System, not just Kolbe A Indexes, when they're using us for selection. Additionally, we believe very strongly that we should help our clients get the best results possible. When you're using us in selection, to get the best results you need to do an analysis of the job you are filling. The process we have for that is building a Range of Success, and when you do that, you get the best results.

Frequently Asked Questions about rating candidates: • Why is the Range of Success TM broad in some Action Modes® and narrow in others? • What happens after I tell Kolbe Corp the Range of Success is ready to be built? • What kind of report will I get after Kolbe Corp runs a candidate against the Range of Success? • Should I hire only "A" -rated candidates? • What if the candidate's Kolbe A TM Index Result is in Transition? • What if I have more than one "A" candidate? • Will all "A" -rated candidates be successful in the job? Why is the Range of Success broad in some Action Modes and narrow in others? The RightFit software uses data to calculate a Range from the information provided. The broader the Range, the easier it is for the candidates to get a higher letter grade. What happens after I tell Kolbe Corp the Range of Success is ready to be built? Kolbe Corp will email you two reports, one called the RightFit Report and one called the Range of Success. The RightFit Report identifies which natural instincts the ideal candidate will demonstrate, and identifies the people included in the Range of Success. A Range of Success Report identifies the possible range of conative talents for a particular role. You will then be ready to start running candidates against the Range. What kind of report will I get after Kolbe Corp runs a candidate against the Range of Success? An individual Candidate Report giving the candidate a letter grade (A through 24

F) will be emailed to you. If you are running more than one candidate against the Range, a Candidate Summary Report will give you each candidate's letter grade. If Cooperatives were used, the Candidate Summary Report will indicate the impact on team synergy as well. Should I hire only "A"- rated candidates? Kolbe Corp recommends hiring candidates that rate a B- or above. Start with the highest rated candidates. However, conative abilities are only one aspect of the review process; candidates must also be screened for skill level, values, personality, etc. For example, you may choose to hire a "B+" candidate instead of an "A-"candidate if the "B-"candidate is a better fit for the organizational culture or has a better skill set or experience level. What if the candidate's Kolbe A Index is in Transition? A Transition result reveals that a candidate is not able to accurately report his/her conative strengths at this time. It is recommended that the candidate retake the Kolbe A Index at an appropriate time prior to being hired. See the definition of Transition. What if I have more than one "A" candidate? Candidates should then be screened for skills, knowledge, commitment and personality to see which would be the best fit. Will all "A" -rated candidates be successful in the job? The Kolbe RightFitTM software identifies conative talents necessary for a job. However, if the candidate does not have the necessary skill set, or the values, personality, etc. he or she may not be successful.

Glossary of Kolbe terms Candidate Report A report that identifies a candidate's grade for the role Contradiction An indication that the Kolbe C Index taker reported a disparity within the job requirements for one Kolbe Action Mode. There are two common reasons for this disparity. The Kolbe C Index taker is unsure of the exact requirements of the job or the job requires vastly different talents in one Action Mode.

Example of Duties and Salary Sheets The following are two examples of the typical "down and dirty" details for ajob being hired for in a dental office. This type of list should be included in any email packet or fax packet that goes to those inquiring about the job along with the Kolbe characteristics. With AutomaticHiring TM , this is only a part of the description since as you know the right characteristics of the hire are just as important as the job duties and salary definitions. Most dental offices use this type of generic description when hiring. That works fine for a run of the mill practice but leaves too many things up to chance on the "doing" side of the position that hasn't been profiled. The primary and most important description of the job relates to the "doing" of the job as defined by the Kolbe RightFit TM and the secondary description are the specific tasks related to the job and finally the actually salary and benefits.

Assistant Voice Script Main Greeting (already recorded) Sub Greeting for 65 ( Word, excel, windows, xp, digital camera operation, scanners, etc.) Hi, this is Dr. James McAnaily. Get ready to hear about the dental assisting job of a lifetime that is now available in Seattle. For the right person, their assisting career has the chance to go to the next level of professional, personal, and economic fulfillment.

This position is in an amazing professional environment that provides the freedom for each team member to express their individuality while enjoying treating some of the most interesting and rewarding types of dental patients possible. This job will challenge you to always be learning and striving for new heights. The facility is excellent with one of the region's best doctors and fellow staff. If you have been in dentistry for any length of time you know that these things alone are very rare in the dental office.

You must have a healthy, stable lifestyle and be a non-smoker. Long distance traffic commutes interfere with a sane work environment therefore you should live in Seattle or be obessive about your punctuality.

ŠBCM

41


The job is full time and the salary begins at $20-25 dollars per hour. Vacation, well time, holidays, bonuses, medical and dental coverage, and profit sharing are all part of the position.

Now that we have the economics out of the way, let's talk about the fun stuff and who should apply for this job. Your ability to communicate effectively will be heard many times during this message.

Great communication skills allow assistants with good technical skills to become great assistants. If you have good technical assisting skills and desire to become an exceptional assistant by continuing to improve your technical skills and combining them with great communication skills then you will work well in this position.

You must be cheerful, kind, and motivated to succeed with a good sense of humor and the ability to laugh in most any situation.

You must have a natural curiosity and always be interested in learning new ideas as well as adapting to the never ending changes in the business and practice of dentistry.

ŠBCM

42


You must have good organizational skills and have an excellent ability to communicate effectively with customers, team members, and doctor.

The practice itself is in Seattle just a few miles north of downtown in Queen A nne and has a m ixture of patients some of whom live close by and some that travel great distances because of their special dental needs.

It is a progressive, high-end, high-fee, low volume practice consisting of mostly adults. 50% of the treatment performed is general, single or multi-tooth implants, and cosmetic dentistry. The other 50% is what we call the "dental disaster" patient. It may be someone who has been in dentures for a long time and now wants out of them, someone who is about to be in dentures, someone missing a lot of teeth with only a few good ones remaining, or someone with a lot of problems that can br fixed without extractions but is extremely fearful of dental care. Our niche is to provide these specialized procedures in one location to meet the complex patient's needs.We also serve the type of patient that demands their doctor spend more time with them. We market aggressively to the patient that needs, desires, and is willing to pay for these typed of care. Some of our patients are even referred to us by other doctors to complete their care or to work with the referring doctor as a team to complete the patient's care. ŠBCM

43


The odds are against you having all of the training to assist in every clinical technique we use in the practice; therefore you will need to be a great listener and a very quick and dedicated learner to bridge the gaps in your knowledge and experience. Specific procedures can always be taught to the right person but the skills of self-confidence, self-motivation, and a willingness to learn must already be a part of your personality.

Communication skills are just as or even more important than assisting skills. It is the doctor's and team members communication skills that help our patients to decide to come into the office for the first time and meet us, to help them decide that they like and trust us, to help them understand that we are the obvious experts that they need, to help them decide to go through with major dental care, to help them decide that their care is worth the financial expense, to help them get through their major dental care, and to keep everyone in the office working effectively as a team.

Communicating in the language and emotions for each patient is far more important than communicating in the dry boring logic based dental facts that most doctors, assistants, and dental team members use in most offices. Patients think emotionally and decide emotionally therefore you must be able communicate with them on the emotional level. ŠBCM

45


You must have effective time management skills for clinical and administrative tasks. You will be cross-trained and expected to be able to handle a variety of tasks that can include marketing tasks and follow-up calls that help our existing patients and those inquiring about our services to decide to go through with their care.

You should already be capable of or know that you are capable of assuming tasks that are mostly unsupervised and then performing them to exacting standards.

It should be obvious to you by now that you must have the ability to learn new ways and new things rapidly to enjoy this job and that you have self-motivational skills.

You absolutely must be comfortable or know that you can become very comfortable quickly with dental care that costs a lot of money. Our patients often pay the price of an expensive new car to get back the dental health they lost decades ago in their life. Life changing dentistry is expensive and insurance often covers only 5% of it. In fact, the average fee for a dental disaster patient starts at $20,000 and can go easily beyond $50,000. If you feel you could never be comfortable in a practice where extremely complex cases are performed that cost this much money, then this isn't the job for you. ŠBCM

46


If you ever had a previous j oh that involved direct sales, then you have a big advantage since you already understand a lot of what is involved with a patient's buying decision with complex dental reconstruction and how each team member is critical to whether a patient chooses to spend their valuable money to get back what they have lost with our services.

Personal development through continuing education and coaching both in the business as well as with outside resources is ongoing. A lot of personal development and practice training takes place at our weekly staff meeting. Full participation with other members of our team at staff meetings is a must. Team members often directly present problems and solutions that affect their area in the practice as well as the whole team at the weekly team meeting. Role playing and reviewing our successes and failures each week are part of the routine. So, once again, the ability to effectively communicate is critical.

Specific Characteristics related to who will do well in this job are: [Insert Kolbe RightFit TM profile here]

I think by now you have a pretty good feel for whether this is a job is one that you could see yourself in or not. You may be ŠBCM

general care, single or multi-tooth implants, and cosmetic dentistry. The other 50% is what we call the "fearful or dental disaster" patient.

We market aggressively to the patient that needs, desires, and is willing to pay for these types of care. Some of our patients are even referred to us by other doctors to complete all of their care or to work with the referring doctor as a team on the patient's care.

Many of these patients need to be completely reconstructed with dental implants and/or dental implants and combinations of restorative and prosthetic dentistry. Most of these patients are treated with the latest sedation dentistry techniques for dental fear or to accomplish large amounts of dentistry in very short periods of time.

Implant surgery and full arch oral surgery is a big part of the practice; needless to say you must be extremely comfortable with blood and the thought of complex surgical assisting for this ŠBCM

56


position. You should already have some complex surgical assisting skills. If you don't have those skills, be ready to learn them very quickly.

Every possible treatment to restore a patient back to dental health could be involved from implant surgery, root canals, periodontal surgery, orthodontics, crowns, composites, veneers, complex motion tomography, computer jaw diagnostics, digital photography and lasers. Do you need to already know everything there is to know about assisting for all of these specific procedures right now? Of course not,training and learning is a part of any new job, but there is a certain level of baseline technique experience beyond routine drill and fill dentistry that I would like to see.

The odds are against you having all of the training to assist in every clinical technique we use in the practice; therefore you will need to be a great listener and a very quick and dedicated learner to bridge the gaps in your knowledge and experience. Specific procedures can always be taught to the right person but the skills of self-confidence, self-motivation, and a willingness to learn must already be a part of your personality.

Communication skills are just as or even more important than assisting skills. It is the doctor's and team members communication skills that help our patients to decide to come into ŠBCM

the office for the first time and meet us, to help them decide that they like and trust us, to help them understand that we are the obvious experts that they need, to help them decide to go through with major dental care, to help them decide that their care is worth the financial expense, to help them get through their major dental care, and to keep everyone in the office working happily and effectively as a team.

Communicating in the language and emotions for each patient is far more important than communicating in the dry boring logic based dental facts that most doctors, assistants, and dental team members use in most offices. Patients think emotionally and decide emotionally therefore you must be able communicate with them on the emotional level.

You must have effective time management skills for clinical and administrative tasks. You will be cross-trained and expected to be able to handle a variety of tasks that can include marketing tasks and follow-up sales calls to help our existing patients and those inquiring about our services to decide to go through with their care.

You should already be capable of or know that you are capable of assuming tasks that are mostly unsupervised and then performing them to exacting standards.

It should be obvious to you by now that you must have the ability to learn new ways and new things rapidly to enjoy this job and that you have self-motivational skills.

You absolutely must be comfortable or know that you can become very comfortable quickly with dental care that costs a lot of money. Our patients often pay the price of an expensive new car to get back the dental health that they lost decades ago in their life. Most of them thought there was no way to regain what they lost. Life changing dentistry is expensive and insurance often covers less than 5% of it. In fact, the average fee for a dental disaster patient starts at $20,000 and can go easily beyond $50,000. If you feel you could never be comfortable in a practice where extremely complex cases are performed that cost this amount of money, then this isn't the job for you.

If you ever had a previous job that involved direct sales, then you have a big advantage for the job since you already understand a lot of what is involved with a patient's buying decision with complex dental reconstruction and how each team member is critical to whether a patient chooses to spend their valuable money to get back what they have lost with our services.

Personal development through continuing education and coaching both in the business as well as with outside resources is ongoing. ŠBCM

59


A lot of personal development and practice training takes place at our weekly staff meeting. Full participation with other members of our team at staff meetings is a must. Team members often directly present problems and solutions that affect their area in the practice as well as the whole team at the weekly team meeting. Role playing and reviewing our successes and failures each week are part of the routine. So, once again, the ability to effectively communicate is critical.

Finally, the following traits are very important to this job: [Insert Kolbe RightFit TM Profile Details here]

This report helps pinpoint the candidates with the right instincts for a unique job. These instincts are measured by the KOLBE A TM index. The human mind has three parts: (1) the thinking or cognitive which is determined by IQ; (2) the feeling or affective which relates to emotions and personality; (3) the willing or conative through which we act, react, and interact with the world, around us. Conation is our drive or volition. In short, it is our ability to bring things or ideas into being, our form of creativity and, therefore, our productivity. An individual's conative talent is the constant we can count on. Unlike learned behavior and social style, it is instinctive. The Kolbe Process TM stems from the discovery of creative instincts through which we initiate all action. These instincts produce a distinctive cluster of behaviors in four Action Modes®. All goal-directed action is initiated through one of these modes. Everyone has equal conative energy, yet individual intensity in any one Mode may vary. These variances give us our distinctive talent. The Action Modes° : CIIC" triodes I Natural Advsn ?ge

People will always solve problems with instinctive energy. Problem solving requires instinct because it requires action. The most effective way an individual will solve a problem is by using the four methods of creative problem solving that are his/her instinctive strengths. He/she will use these methods to initiate solutions, prevent actions that might make the problem worse or that created the problem in the first place, and to respond to the very nature of the problem. For each zone of each mode, there are starter words to help in understanding the individual's actions. The twelve universal approaches to creative problem solving are the Kolbe Impact Factors TM . Everyone instinctively uses four (one within each mode depending upon your zones of operation) to reach peak performance.

Defining The Opportunity This opportunity you see as ideal for a systems-oriented person who creates comprehensive structures that incorporate a totality of needs. You look to this role to provide the base-line of operations or procedures for other activities. It is not a role for a person who hesitates to question omissions or who would accept less than conformity to the basic principles established.

According to your requirements, the most essential talent necessary is the ability to: STRUCTURE CONSOLIDATE TRANSLATE

PREPARE DISCIPLINE COORDINATE

ARRANGE INTEGRATE SCHEDULE

PLAN BUDGET CHART

In order to accomplish to your standards, a person filling this role would also need to function:

Ii

STUDIOUSLY PRACTICALLY EXPERTLY

THOROUGHLY CONCLUSIVELY STRATEGICALLY

TECHNICALLY HANDILY SKILLFULLY MECHANICALLY DEXTEROUSLY TANGIBLY STRENOUSLY DEMONSTRABLY STURDILY Because you consider the following actions to be counter-productive in this position, the person filling this role needs to avoid: CHAOS FLYING BY THE SEAT OF THE PANTS ACTING AT THE LAST MOMENT AD LIBBING UNNECESSARY RISK DEADLINES TOO MANY UNKNOWNS CONSTANT CHANGE

93.


When evaluating another persons performance, it is essential to have provided the opportunity for success. Have you rewarded results rather than insisting on a particular conative process. If the role truly depends upon utilizing a certain Action Mode, you can target that energy by the way you frame assignments. To target: Fact Finder effort: ask for priorities to be established and explain specific expectations. Follow Thru effort: ask for a flow chart of activities and a review of procedures. Quick Start effort: ask for alternatives and challenge with deadlines. I mplementor effort: ask for manual demonstrations.

This report helps pinpoint the candidates with the right instincts for a unique job. These instincts are measured by the KOLBE A TM index. The human mind has three parts: (1) the thinking or cognitive which is determined by IQ; (2) the feeling or affective which relates to emotions and personality; (3) the willing or conative through which we act, react, and interact with the world around us. Conation is our drive or volition. In short, it is our ability to bring things or ideas into being, our form of creativity and, therefore, our productivity.

-

An individual's conative talent is the constant we can count on. Unlike learned behavior and social style, it is instinctive. The Kolbe Process TM stems from the discovery of creative instincts through which we initiate all action. These instincts produce a distinctive cluster of behaviors in four Action Modes®. All goal-directed action is initiated through one of these modes. Everyone has equal conative energy, yet individual intensity in any one Mode may vary. These variances give us our distinctive talent. The Action Modes° e5 J Natural Aelvactapei impact Factors I Sue

People will always solve problems with instinctive energy. Problem solving requires instinct because it requires action. The most effective way an individual will solve a problem is by using the four methods of creative problem solving that are his/her instinctive strengths. He/she will use these methods to initiate solutions, prevent actions that might make the problem worse or that created the problem in the first place, and to respond to the very nature of the problem. For each zone of each mode, there are starter words to help in understanding the individual's actions. The twelve universal approaches to creative problem solving are the Kolbe Impact Factors TM . Everyone instinctively uses four (one within each mode depending upon your zones of operation) to reach peak performance.

Defining The Opportunity This opportunity, as you see it, rewards the ability to work within a regulated environment and determine the probable outcome of complex paths. You look to this role for mapping strategies and forecasting based on historical trends. It is not a role suited to a close-enough-is good-enough mentality, nor for a person who rejects consistency as a primary goal. 1

According to your requirements, the most essential talent necessary is the ability to: PROBE ALLOCATE DEFINE CALCULATE RESEARCH DELIBERATE PROVE INQUIRE FORMALIZE PRIORITIZE SPECIFY EVALUATE STRUCTURE PREPARE ARRANGE PLAN CONSOLIDATE DISCIPLINE INTEGRATE BUDGET TRANSLATE COORDINATE SCHEDULE CHART In order to accomplish to your standard, a person filling this role would also need to function: FLUENTLY FLEXIBLY SPONTANEOUSLY IMAGINATIVELY ADVENTUROUSLY RAPIDLY CONCEPTUALLY INVENTIVELY INTUITIVELY Because you consider the following actions to be counter-productive in this position, the person filling this role needs to avoid: PHYSICALLY DEMONSTRATING BUILDING A PROTOTYPE OPERATING MECHANICAL EQUIPMENT DEALING WITH TANGIBLES EXPRESSING IN CONCRETE TERMS MANUAL EFFORT PROVIDING HANDS-ON SOLUTIONS RELIANCE ON YOUR SENSE OF SPATIAL RELATIONSHIPS

106.


Managing The Options When evaluating another person's performance, it is essential to have provided the opportunity for success. Have you rewarded results rather than insisting on a particular conative process? If the role truly depends upon utilizing a certain Action Mode, you can target that energy by the way you frame assignments. To target: Fact Finder effort: ask for priorities to be established and explain specific expectations. Follow Thru effort: ask for a flow chart of activities and a review of procedures. Quick Start effort: ask for alternatives and challenge with deadlines. Implementor effort: ask for manual demonstrations.

Defining

Opportunity

You have indicated that success on this job requires flexibility in adjusting to a variety of rapidly-changing challenges. It is a role you view for a person adept at planning ahead and anticipating needs. It is not a position that would work for a detail-oriented person as the sequence of activities is ever-changing and leaves little time for complete explanation.

*is

According to your requirements, the most essential talent necessary is the ability to: INVENT DEVISE RISK IMPROVISE BRAINSTORM CHALLENGE PLAY HUNCHES PROMOTE ORIGINATE CONTRIVE REFORM INTUIT STRUCTURE PREPARE ARRANGE PLAN CONSOLIDATE DISCIPLINE INTEGRATE BUDGET TRANSLATE COORDINATE SCHEDULE CHART Because you consider the following actions to be counter-productive in this position, the person filling this role needs to avoid: GETTING BOGGED DOWN IN DETAIL HAVING TO JUSTIFY STRATEGIZING THE WAY THEY DO THINGS EXPLAINING FROM EXPERIENCE HAVING TO WORK WITHIN PRIORITIES DEALING PRIMARILY WITH PRACTICALITIES ASSESSING SPECIFIC PROBABILITIES RESEARCHING WHAT HAS ALREADY BEEN DONE PHYSICALLY DEMONSTRATING BUILDING A PROTOTYPE OPERATING MECHANICAL EQUIPMENT DEALING WITH TANGIBLES EXPRESSING IN CONCRETE TERMS MANUAL EFFORT PROVIDING HANDS-ON SOLUTIONS RELIANCE ON YOUR SENSE OF SPATIAL RELATIONSHIPS

Managing The Options When evaluating another person's performance, it is essential to have provided the opportunity for success. Have you rewarded results rather than insisting on a particular conative process? If the role truly depends upon utilizing a certain Action Mode, you can target that energy by the way you frame assignments. To target: Fact Finder effort: ask for priorities to be established and explain specific expectations. Follow Thru effort: ask for a flow chart of activities and a review of procedures. Quick Start effort: ask for alternatives and challenge with deadlines. Implementor effort: ask for manual demonstrations.

This report helps pinpoint the candidates with the right instincts for a unique job. These instincts are measured by the KOLBE A TTM index. The human mind has three parts: (1) the thinking or cognitive which is determined by IQ; (2) the feeling or affective which relates to emotions and personality; (3) the willing or conative through which we act, react, and interact with the world around us. Conation is our drive or volition. In short, it is our ability to bring things or ideas into being, our form of creativity and, therefore, our productivity. An individual's conative talent is the constant we can count on. Unlike learned behavior and social TM style, it is instinctive. The Kolbe Process stems from the discovery of creative instincts through which we initiate all action. These instincts produce a distinctive cluster of behaviors in four Action Modes®. All goal-directed action is initiated through one of these modes. Eve ry one has equal conative energy, yet individual intensity in any one Mode may vary. These variances give us our distinctive talent. The Ac tion Modes® . —. ' p Netu

A Job Candidate's Natural Advantage TM is determined by the degree of intensity through which he/she acts in each Action Mode®. The Kolbe A TM index quantifies this intensity measuring the extent to which a person will, won't or is willing to use the related actions. There are no good or bad, right or wrong results. The key is identifying how best to use a person's innate strengths. It is a combination of talents that make a candidate better suited to one position than another. A Natural Advantage isn't a job title, rather a frame of mind or method of operation. The following is a list of Natural Advantages: Manager er

People will always solve problems with instinctive energy. Problem solving requires instinct because it requires action. The most effective way an individual will solve a problem is by using the four methods of creative problem solving that are his/her instinctive strengths. He/she will use these methods to initiate solutions, prevent actions that might make the problem worse or that created the problem in the first place, and to respond to the very nature of the problem. For each zone of each mode, there are starter words to help in understanding the individual's actions. The twelve universal approaches to creative problem solving are the Kolbe Impact Factors TM . Everyone instinctively uses four (one within each mode depending upon your zones of operation) to reach peak performance.

Defining The Opportunity This opportunity, you see, is ideal for a person who literally grabs hold of a problem, dissects it, and puts it back together, making it fully functional. You look to the person in this role to assure a consistent quality and standard of endurance. This is not a role for an uncoordinated approach that defies procedural necessities.

What It Takes To Succ eed According to your requirements, the most essential talent necessary is the ability to: STRUCTURE PREPARE ARRANGE PLAN CONSOLIDATE DISCIPLINE INTEGRATE BUDGET TRANSLATE COORDINATE SCHEDULE CHART FORM CRAFT FIX BUILD>RENDER REPAIR MOLD SHAPE CONSTRUCT DEMONSTRATE PUT TOGETHER PRACTICE Because you consider the following actions to be counter-productive in this position, the person filling this role needs to avoid: GETTING BOGGED DOWN IN DETAIL HAVING TO JUSTIFY STRATEGIZING THE WAY THEY DO THINGS EXPLAINING FROM EXPERIENCE HAVING TO WORK WITHIN PRIORITIES DEALING PRIMARILY WITH PRACTICALITIES ASSESSING SPECIFIC PROBABILITIES RESEARCHING WHAT HAS ALREADY BEEN DONE CHAOS FLYING BY THE SEAT OF THE PANTS ACTING AT THE LAST MOMENT AD LIBBING UNNECESSARY RISK DEADLINES TOO MANY UNKNOWNS CONSTANT CHANGE
