"When I arrived, we were in the bottom 4% of schools in terms of academic performance in the state. Every administrator, board member, central office employee, and teacher took a Kolbe A and went through training around it. We quickly became the most improved school district in the state and in the top 1/3 in terms of performance. Kolbe was a huge part of that turnaround." - David Buck, Ed. D., Superintendent, Wright City R-II School District
“Kathy Kolbe has produced a fascinating and insightful work that adds a rich dimension of understanding to the critical task of job performance and individual success. It should be invaluable in helping to direct one’s own efforts as well as directing the efforts of others.” - Steven C. Wheelwright, Ph.D., Professor, Harvard University Graduate School of Business Administration
"I was working with one of my long term leader clients who asked me to run a seminar for their staff. At the end of the seminar, one of the staff approached me with tears of joy. She said, 'all my life it has been suggested I have ADD/ADHD, but today I feel like I have finally found out that its my talent, ...not a problem." - Jason Kolevski
"One of the men cried when he got his results. He thanked us for giving him proof of his value. He literally wore it as a medal of honor! He was grateful that someone put in writing what he hoped was there in himself." - Caroline Sugarman
"I helped parents who were frustrated with their son's bad grades and their poor relationship with him. They suspected he might have Asperger's or a learning disability. I used Kolbe and could immediately see that the parents were resistant implementers, while the son was initiating. I told the father to buy a computer making kit, which he hated, but it changed their relationship. He said it was the best bonding experience they had ever had, and his son's grades skyrocketed." - Arthur Jue
"You will not be able to have an appreciation for the multiple facets of Kolbe Wisdom without the intense discussion, role play, and explanations that come through certification seminars." - Ella Huysamen
"The Kolbe system ranks among the top three pieces of information I have acquired in my life. When I got my Kolbe result, my life changed. I eliminated frustration and guilt." - Dan Sullivan, Founder and CEO, The Strategic Coach
“My favorite thing about the Kolbe Concept is that it can’t be argued….it is the truth and there is data and proof to back it up.” - Noelle Murphy, VP & Manager of Client Experience, Gilroy Kernan & Gilroy Inc.
"Through my work, I've seen miracles in the families and workplaces of people who have learned what makes them tick. Even my 10 year-old son completely turned around after I helped him identify his strengths and understand that he's perfect the way he is." - Pamela J. Morris
