Save your time and avoid this one

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Content and value

What was most disappointing about Kathy Kolbe’s story?

This material is so basic that the kolbe website shared more value then this provides.

What character would you cut from Natural Advantage?

All of them

Any additional comments?

This is so basic that you are best to avoid it. Check out Kolbe's full titles - not these Natural Advantage series.

Absolutely 100% Correct!

I took this test a few years back and just listened to it again and it is definitely 100% correct. Just what I needed to stay in my lane and partner with others who have the skills I do not possess. 100% Innovator

Helpful paid advertising

Interesting but you’re basically paying for an ad. If you’ve already done the Kolbe test and know which audiobook you need to listen to in the series, you don’t need the audiobook. Also it’s dated enough to talk about sending a fax, using a dictaphone, and using an answering machine, which shows how timeless the info is, because it does still apply, but a little cheesy and could use an update to reflect how different natures adapt (or not) to current technology. I do recommend the Kolbe testing but not so much this series of audiobooks.

This was a terrible waste of time, energy and $

I appreciate the Kolbe methodology, but this was not at all helpful.

It was a half an hour interview that addressed virtually nothing.

This audible will cost you more in time and energy to listen to than it does in dollar cost, as it did me.

Learned something new

I love to learn ways I can be better. The Kolbe A has without a doubt provided exactly that opportunity. Just one of many examples, I had a manager who forced me to script every presentation, practice it in front of a mirror and show her my notes and practice in front of her. Well.... Kolbe A says I should wing it and only have a card with bullets. I know for a fact I do 110% better when I have a few bullets and wing it!! As Kolbe says, "Allow myself to be who I am."
