Stronger Knowing Your {KOLBE} Strengths.


Thirty-five years ago, my husband embarked on a journey, thinking he had a grasp of what lay ahead. Nearly six years of dating gave him some insights, but little did he anticipate the eye-opening revelation that awaited him in the future. 

Fast forward to today, and he couldn't believe his eyes when he stumbled upon my Kolbe A Index results. With a staggering 125% pegged, it not only unveiled my strengths but also provided clarity to questions that had puzzled him for years. Our differences, divinely orchestrated, became apparent, and as we navigate life with strengths at opposite ends of the spectrum, it's almost as if God himself is amused. 
Have you ever found yourself scratching your head about your team? Perhaps, like my husband back then, you're dealing with individuals who are yet to discover or fully utilize their strengths. It's possible that these strengths remain untapped, hindering their performance in your current work environment. Furthermore, considering the diverse nature of teams, understanding and leveraging these inherent strengths becomes crucial for effective collaboration. 
Collaborative teamwork mirrors the dynamics of a marriage of opposites. Much like my husband and me, deciphering how each team member is wired and understanding the implications for harmonious collaboration need not be a shot in the dark. Let's delve into how you can strategically leverage your innate strengths and those of your team to unlock maximized productivity and effectiveness.
