UNACCPETABLES”
(Kathy Kolbe)

It’s unacceptable to say you’re doing everything you can, when all you’re doing is thinking about it.

It’s
unacceptable to confuse natural conflict in conative ways of getting things done with ‘personality problems.’

It’s unacceptable say you’re brainstorming then tell a contributor “You’ve already had a turn.”

It’s unacceptable to think one conative MO makes you more intelligent than another ( as per college entrance exams).

It’s unacceptable to label someone a leader when they don’t bring out the best in other people. 

 


It’s unacceptable to tell a kid he or she did a good job when they didn’t make a commitment to the task.

It’s unacceptable to waste years of education to learn to do something for which you’re not naturally well suited. 
 


It’s
unacceptable to evaluate people on whether they did a good job of doing it your way, instead of on the results they achieved
 


It’s
unacceptable for us to ask each other to do things in ways that set us up for failure
 



It’s
unacceptable to drug kids because their natural abilities require them to learn in ways that don’t fit the conative MO of education system.

It’s
unacceptable to label a kid ADD or ADHD when the system is not enabling them to use their God-given conative strengths.

unacceptable to say testing for selection is racially biased when the Kolbe A Index has proven unbiased by gender, age and race. 


It’s unacceptable to say women do things differently from men when conative research proves that’s just not true. 



It’s
unacceptable for the academic world to demean conative drive, the energy behind how we get things done.
