THE BIRKMAN METHOD

A Powerful Tool to Help Individuals and Teams

We use this powerful instrument to help people learn about themselves and others. With the Birkman Method, we help identify:

• Your most effective leadership style
• What you need from your environment to be that most effective leader
• What your stress behavior looks like when your needs aren’t met
• How to get out of stress, and how to keep yourself from getting stressed
• What motivates and interests you
• What your team profile looks like
• What makes it easy for your team to work together
• Where you might get into trouble as a team, and how to keep that from happening

The Beauty of the Birkman

• Do you know what you need to be an effective leader?
• Are you feeling stressed about work, or maybe even life in general?
• Is your team in conflict, or maybe just stuck?

The beauty of the Birkman Method is that it provides answers to people in all of these situations and more. With the Birkman, we help individuals and teams understand what they need to be effective. They also learn how to get out of stress – and how to stay out of stress. Collectively, we have used the Birkman with hundreds of teams and thousands of individuals, and we can attest to how this instrument helps leaders and their teams work effectively to deliver results.
