The Birkman Method®


The success we achieve can largely depend on how well we understand ourselves and those with whom we interact. Much of our time is spent working with others to accomplish objectives. People skills are one of the most critical we can develop. 


The Birkman Method® is a scientifically developed, multi-dimensional assessment designed to help you achieve more at work and at home. It integrates behavioral, motivational and occupational data together to predict behavior and work satisfaction across situations. The Birkman Method is the personality assessment for improving people skills and aligning roles and relationships for maximum productivity and success.    


Measures of The Birkman Method®


  1. Usual Behavior – effective behavioral styles for tasks and relationships.

  2. Underlying Needs – internal perceptions and expectations for how tasks and relationships should be governed.

  3. Stress Behavior – ineffective behavioral styles when Needs go unmet.

  4. Interests – vocational and avocational preferences.

  5. Occupational - 22 job families, 200+ job titles (linked to O*Net)

  6. Management Styles - approach to managing tasks and people.

  7. Work Environment - the work environment that brings the best support and fit.
