Kolbe Indexes

Kolbe A™ Index

The Kolbe A™ Index describes an individual’s innate or instinctive mode of operation (MO). It provides you and others with valuable information about how you strive, how you communicate, and how you get things done. It is an index, not a test, so there are no right or wrong answers.

When PSG analyzes an organization’s Kolbe A™ results as a whole, we identify the key strengths that are essential for that organization to succeed and the shifts in work culture that will heighten employees’ productivity. We often hear people say, “I can’t believe how accurate this is,” or “you have nailed exactly the way I operate.”

Kolbe B™ Index result

The Kolbe B™ Index defines an individual’s perspective on his/her current job demands. This tool helps the individual, the manager, and co-workers understand the talents that individual perceives as necessary in order to do his/her job. Again, there are no right or wrong answers, just clarification on each individual’s strengths and ideal job fit.

PSG uses the combined results of the Kolbe A™ and B™ Indexes to recognize when job demands are counter to the instinctive talent of the jobholder and to address the level of stress this disparity can cause.

Kolbe C™ Index result

The Kolbe C™ Index is usually taken by an immediate manager and helps him/her fully understand his/her requirements for performance. It also identifies the characteristics that manager perceives as needed for success.

PSG compares Kolbe A™ and Kolbe C™ results in order to identify the similarities/differences in how an employee and a manager each believe a job should be accomplished.  Likewise, we compare an employee’s Kolbe B™ result with a manager’s Kolbe C™ result in order to explore if both are viewing the job at hand in the same way.  These comparisons are an objective tool PSG employs to enhance dialogue and ultimately, performance.
