Birkman Method – Personality Assessments

Since 1951, Birkman has helped people and organizations improve performance through their extensive behavioral and occupational assessment – The Birkman Method.

Companies and consultants use The Birkman Method to encourage personal growth by acknowledging strengths and challenges alike. Individuals and teams benefit from The Birkman Method through better communication and a clearer understanding of people’s Interests, Needs, Usual Behaviors, and Stress Behaviors.

The Birkman Method is a favorite assessment of experienced executive coaches, organizational and HR professionals, mentors, and counselors because it paints a comprehensive picture of an individual’s personality and motivations.

The Birkman Method uses one online questionnaire to produce more than 40 reports that facilitate:

  • Team building
  • Leadership development
  • Executive coaching
  • Career Exploration
  • Talent Selection
  • Sales and Negotiation
  • Professional development
  • Interpersonal communication and relationship building

Each reporting package describes a person’s personality in different levels of detail, but they all are based on the same data points gathered from The Birkman Method questionnaire.

The Birkman Method combines motivational, behavioral, and interest evaluation into one single assessment, which provides a multi-dimensional and comprehensive analysis, thus reducing the need for multiple assessments. The questionnaire is delivered online and should take about 45 minutes to complete.

Birkman Method offers the most robust tool to provide leaders and others with:

  • Self-awareness
  • Self-management
  • Social awareness
  • Relational management
  • Occupational and recreational interest profiling
