How to Identify Instinctive Strengths and Optimize a Team for Success, Featuring Shelley Moore of Insight Strategic Concepts

When you hire a person with a specific set of professional skills and experience, you are also welcoming a particular personality, AND someone with a specific way of naturally taking action.

Just like a strong team needs a wide variety of skills and viewpoints to thrive, successful organizations need a group with diverse instincts and problem-solving approaches in order to overcome roadblocks and reach their full potential. 

In this episode of Powered by Instinct, host David Kolbe welcomes Shelley Moore. Shelley is the Founder and President of Insight Strategic Concepts, and a Kolbe Certified™ Consultant for 24 years. The two discuss why it’s essential for executives to identify each employee's MO early on and how they can fully optimize the strengths of their team members to take their business to the next level.

Podcast Insights 

🎙️ Kolbe helps us understand that different approaches to doing things strengthen a business. Companies comprise members with different talents and skills. However, while executives know they need to hire people with different areas of expertise, it's often challenging for them to understand that even people in the same departments approach the same tasks differently. But once they acknowledge that — and Kolbe plays a significant role in this — they can take their business to the next level. ''The collaborative aspect of everybody working together with different modes of operation and knowing how to do that started to take hold. And there became less of an attitude about it and more of an appreciation of how energy works and how you get things done.'' 

🎙️ Transparency is critical in business. Shelley has been a Kolbe Certified™ Consultant for almost 25 years. Her job is to help companies upgrade their business by understanding and embracing everyone's talents and strengths. To do that, she generally connects with each member separately. ''It's one of those things where connecting with people individually, hearing what their challenges and struggles are, and oftentimes, the misinterpretations they have about themselves or other people and their intentions — which can be explained by talking about the three parts of the mind. So when people bring up their issues and their challenges, you're able to show them how that's an attitudinal thing, or you have differences in how you're operating, and you're turning [it] into something that it's not." 

🎙️ Kolbe helps us work on the personal aspects of life. The results of taking a Kolbe assessment are mind-blowing for many. They want not just their coworkers, but also their family members and friends to take it, as it can change the way they approach every connection in their life, whether business or personal.
