Become more effective in any life situation by understanding how you learn.

The way you learn is the way you live make deci­sions, solve prob­lems, change, col­lab­o­rate, inno­vate, and improve. The first step in your aware­ness of your own learn­ing is self-assessment.

The NEW Kolb Expe­ri­en­tial Learn­ing Pro­file (KELP) was cre­at­ed as a self-reflec­tion tool to help learn­ers under­stand them­selves bet­ter through their indi­vid­ual pref­er­ences in approach­ing an ide­al process of learn­ing. 

The KELP pro­vides trans­for­ma­tive self-aware­ness that you can use to improve per­for­mance, learn, and con­tin­ue to devel­op through­out your life.

The KELP will help you and your employ­ees or learn­ers to under­stand them­selves bet­ter, to col­lab­o­rate more suc­cess­ful­ly on teams, and to use new learn­ing meth­ods to meet the demands you face.

Informed by an exten­sive research base of more than 106,000 schol­ar­ly cita­tions and con­tin­u­ous improve­ments through six pre­vi­ous ver­sions, the new KELP gives a broad­er and more per­son­al­ized view of how we learn than pre­vi­ous learn­ing style instru­ments. 

Mil­lions of users in 164 coun­tries around the world have con­tributed to the KELP nor­ma­tive com­par­i­son group of more than 26,000 stu­dents and work­ing adults from a wide range of occu­pa­tions and edu­ca­tion­al backgrounds.

The KELP can help employ­ees and stu­dents under­stand how their learn­ing styles affect prob­lem solv­ing, team­work, han­dling con­flict, com­mu­ni­ca­tion and career choice. The results can help teams find out why they work well togeth­er or encounter con­flict. The KELP strength­ens over­all learn­ing for peo­ple in all walks of life.

The KELP is the newest version and replacement of the 

Kolb Learning Styles Inventory 4.0.

“My facil­i­ta­tion style now breathes every com­po­nent of the Kolb cycle and in return, inspires oth­ers to apply it in their own learn­ing expe­ri­ence. The Kolb Learn­ing Mod­el has become my way of think­ing, my way of teach­ing and my way of living.”

~ Danièle Bien­v­enue, Exec­u­tive Coach & Facilitator

How It Works

The KELP is a self-admin­is­tered assess­ment that you com­plete online. The inven­to­ry takes 10–15 min­utes to com­plete. Once you sub­mit your answers, you will receive an email with an exten­sive per­son­al report, which includes:

  • How you use the ide­al cycle of learn­ing in your life and work
  • Your typ­i­cal learn­ing style from the nine ways of learn­ing 
  • Your learn­ing flex­i­bil­i­ty, which allows you to expand your abil­i­ty to use oth­er styles for full-cycle learn­ing 
  • Appli­ca­tions for what you have learned about your­self to increase your learn­ing pow­er, become more effec­tive, and con­tin­ue to mature through­out life.

Who Should Take The KELP?

  • Indi­vid­ual life­long learners
  • Stu­dents, trainees, mentees and coaches
  • Edu­ca­tors, teach­ers, admin­is­tra­tors, train­ers, coach­es and mentors
  • Employ­ers, man­agers and team leaders
  • Team mem­bers, employ­ees and group members

Under­stand­ing how peo­ple learn can help you to tar­get your train­ing and devel­op­ment efforts, moti­vate teams, and make opti­mum use of your col­lec­tive time, resources and capa­bil­i­ties. The Kolb Expe­ri­en­tial Learn­ing Pro­file rec­og­nizes indi­vid­ual learn­ing pref­er­ences, while encour­ag­ing indi­vid­u­als to expand learn­ing strengths.
