Creating understanding through an awareness of strengths and needs
The Birkman Method is a comprehensive assessment system of one’s strengths, needs, interests, and perceptions. It helps individuals increase their effectiveness in their personal life and in their work.
Perceptions: The Perceived Belief of the Truth
Often our effectiveness is hampered by misunderstandings caused by differing perceptions. The Birkman Method offers insights into the unproductive behaviors we might engage in if our needs are not met, how we behave when we are effective, and what our needs are to stay effective.
The key to communication
Misunderstanding is often the result of a gap between differing perceptions and judgments. The ability to understand and be understood is the key to communication. How we listen and how aware we are of our needs, will determine the effectiveness of our communication and the accuracy of our perceptions.
Communication is the key to effective relationships. Collaboration, nurturance, and caring are sustained by the ability to understand one another. The Birkman Method provides a non-judgmental navigational map into understanding the motivation and behavior of others.
Your work interests
Your interests facilitate your success a work. The Birkman Method will highlight your interests in ten key areas as well as evaluate several work categories that are the most suited for you. Moreover, it will prescribe ways to increase your effectiveness while focusing your awareness on your potential.
Working with Others
Many components affect your ability to work with others. The Birkman Method assesses eleven different components that impact upon your work effectiveness, your ability to communicate with senior management, peers, and subordinates, and the value you bring to your team.
