Kolbe B™ Index

The Kolbe B Index measures an individual's perception of their own job responsibilities. Comparing Kolbe A™ and Kolbe B results helps job holders recognize when they are trying to perform contrary to their natural strengths and abilities.

What does your job require?

Different jobs require different conative abilities. The Kolbe B Index Result identifies which talents are a natural fit for a particular job and how the job holder perceives the requirements for success in that role.

Here’s why you should take the 26-Question Kolbe b Index...

“The Kolbe helped me to look back over my career and understand why some positions weren’t a fit. Not because I didn’t do a good job, but because it was not a conative fit.”

Lesley Erickson (7-7-3-2), Director of Talent Management, Bethany Christian Services

Kolbe B results will change as job requirements and tasks change. Consider using the Kolbe B again whenever supervisors or requirements change, and then periodically as part of a regular review process.


your job shouldn’t kill you

The World Health Organization has officially recognized burnout as a medical condition. Kolbe gets to the root of the problem, which is often that people are required to work against their instinctive strengths. We help create alignment between a person’s conative strengths (Kolbe A Index results) and the demands of the job (Kolbe B Index results).
