Everyone makes decisions differently. In that we’re all the same.

We would now like to give you a better idea of just how varied and different the individual constellations of the eight decision-making dimensions can be. By way of example, we have taken the different constellations identified in various KAIROS® decision-maker profiles, displayed them in a text cloud and supplemented them in each case with a few sample comments from the in-depth results report and/or corresponding coaching session. The names given to the individual clouds are totally neutral and serve merely to identify them and provide a rough orientation.
