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.
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.
By taking this assessment, you’ll discover the natural strengths needed to do a specific role and how they compare to your own natural strengths.
The B Index helps identify conative stress – called strain - involved with your daily tasks.
It can be used in regular performance reviews and job design.
You’ll get tips about where to commit your time and mental energy, and how to reenergize when you’re feeling sluggish or unproductive.
“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.”
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.
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).
