Step One in The Trusted Transition Process is The Conceptual Transition Experience which will begin with a comprehensive interview so we can determine both your financial and emotional needs for the match you are seeking for yourself, your staff and your patients. We will work directly with you to set objectives, identify the transition options for your particular situation and implement plans to meet those objectives. You are in total control of the process.

About the Kolbe System (for Associateship Matches) The Kolbe System uses a distinctive approach to personality testing, going beyond the cognitive (IQ) and the affective (personality) parts of the mind and on to the conative (instinctive) part of the mind. Understanding how instincts combine with intelligence and personality will help optimize the match. The Kolbe A Index is a thirty-six question assessment that measures and describes the natural way a personal takes purposeful action, known as Action Modes.


Numerical values indicate how a person uses their instincts to:

- Prevent problems
- Respond to opportunities
- Initiate solutions

Taking it a step further, Kolbe has a Rightfit system that measures each individual within the context of your environment. This is a valuable tool when searching for a partner match - measuring how close the candidates match the ideal profile you have helped to generate. Additional Kolbe testing is available to assess staff strengths and improve performance.
