We just wrapped season 1 of the Powered by Instinct Podcast. Here are some of the top insights learned and ideas gained from those conversations with Kolbe experts, team leaders, consultants, and coaches. 

1. What’s the Kolbe A™ Index?

Let’s find out from the award-winning theorist who developed it.

The Kolbe A Index is pretty simple, very straightforward. It is an assessment of your strengths, your natural abilities, the way you do creative problem-solving. It's not how smart you are, not your personality type at all. It's how you get things done when you do it the best; when you do it naturally.

Kathy Kolbe, Founder of Kolbe Corp

2. Why should you compare Kolbe results?

We all have to work with other people. It’s important to understand the strengths of those around you.

3. Should you combine other assessments with Kolbe?

More information is a good thing.

Here's what I can tell you about any assessment, whether it's ours or anybody else's: It's never going to tell you everything you need to know about that person. I want you to use some other assessment, DiSC, StrengthsFinder, Predictive Index, etc. because it actually gives you a deeper view into that person.

Eric Herrera, VP of Sales, Kolbe Corp

4. Why should you use Kolbe for hiring?

It’s the number one predictor of who will be a long-term fit in a given role.

5. Once you find the right hire, how do you keep them?

It’s not enough to hire them. You need to continue the communication process and support their instinctive needs.

6. What happens when your job requires you to do a lot of tasks you’re good at that don’t fit your natural strengths?

Have you heard of the dreaded Curse of the Capable?

7. What’s the path to creating and maintaining an engaged culture?

Stefan Wissenbach, the CEO of Engagement Multiplier, joined Kolbe Corp CEO David Kolbe to discuss this important topic and more.

8. So, how do you use Kolbe to create that engaged culture?

Kolbe offers a complete solution, but it begins with a simple measure.

As a leader, it starts with getting together and making sure everyone understands each other's strengths. Then you know who you can count on to do what, and then that builds trust immediately.

Amy Bruske, President of Kolbe Corp

9. Can Kolbe change a company’s fortunes?

Jessica Mogill of Crisp shares one of the countless times the knowledge Kolbe provides changed everything for an organization.

10. Can Kolbe change an individual’s life?

Our mission is to help people understand their own and each other’s instinctive strengths and use that understanding to improve their lives in the ways they care about most.

It's truly a game-changer. When people really get it, understand it, and embrace it, when they have that language and that's a part of them, I think you see the world completely differently.
