Podcast Insights 

The Kolbe A Index helps you define and embrace your strengths. It gives you a unique perspective on what you can bring to the table and helps you get to know yourself better. ''The Kolbe A is going to tell us all about our striving instincts. It's not about how smart you are or the skills that you have. It's not about your personality, what motivates you, or whether you're an introvert or an extrovert. But what the Kolbe A Index measures are what we call your striving instincts. And so, this is how you naturally solve problems, make decisions, and take action. But specifically, it's about how you take action when you're free to be yourself.'' 


After you take the Kolbe A, you get a customized report full of tips and tricks. The report contains multiple pages that include suggestions on how to use your strengths, audio explanations, ways to maximize your energy, career advice, and much more. “Make sure you go back to listen to the online version of your Kolbe A results because Kathy's going to add some additional tips, give you some additional insight into your specific four number result there. And then again, if you've read your Kolbe A result, but it was a couple of years ago, a couple of months ago, go back through. The more you read it, the more that you learn more about yourself and the more you pick up additional things.'' 


Dos and Don'ts put a light on what should be your focus area. However, we often waste a lot of time and energy on tasks and activities that we are not good at for a good reason — our approaches differ from what is expected in a given situation. Therefore, taking an assessment such as Kolbe makes it easier for everyone to develop working models resulting in efficiency. ''The dos and don'ts are part of what makes it actionable for people. People get confused with the dos and don'ts. The dos are what you would naturally do if free to be yourself, and the don'ts are what you would not naturally do. So a lot of times, people look at the don'ts list, and they're like, 'Well, wait a second. Do I do these, or do I not do these?'''
