Birkman Information



There are TWO common scenarios that happens far too often in workplace “leadership.”

1A company hires a candidate whose past experience suggests they are proficient as a manager and have leadership written all over their resume. But THEN, once that person is on the job, they fail miserably because they have little or no real training as a manager of people.

2A company promotes an outstanding performer into a leadership role, however their team suffers under their leadership because their ability to manage their own projects successfully doesn’t mean they understand the different styles of how others work effectively and how to lead them according to their strengths.

When it comes to being a real manager or leader, there are so many essential skills – like knowing how to motivate your team, make needed changes while minimizing pushback, and create accountabilities and reward systems to breed a healthy corporate culture. But few have learned how to develop the concepts of trust, open dialogue and being transparent as a leader.

In short, it takes real training coupled with hands-on coaching and accountability from their directors to develop a skilled leader.


The Program

Successful businesses have three things in common:

  • Solid Structure
  • Well-Developed Processes
  • Strategic Management of People

Our leadership program mainly focuses on the management of people. We do this by:

  1. Gaining support from participants’ Directors/VP’s (pre-work before training begins).
  2. Two days of hands-on interactive training.
  3.  The implementation of training at work – real on-the-job coaching.
    Certification is earned once documentation/examples showcase that the principles taught have been applied to real life leadership experiences.


There are many topics and skills we cover in our Leadership Development Program. Here are some of them:

  1. Emotional Intelligence
  2. Opening Lines of Communication
  3. Developing Accountability
  4. Giving and Receiving Feedback
  5. Holding Effective Meetings
  6. Conflict Resolution
  7. Building Productivity Through Teams
  8. Managing the Power of Expectations

If you are looking for one of the most validated career assessments in the market you have found it here with The Birkman Method. The Birkman Method was created back in the early 1950s and has been translated into over 22 different languages.

Many assessments describe socialized, visible behavior. The Birkman Method® reaches further to analyze and report what drives and motivates behavior. We call these “Needs” — the expectations one has about relationships and situations in a social context. These Needs motivate personal actions and behaviors. When Needs are met, they drive behavior in positive and productive directions. Unmet needs can create potentially negative and less than productive behavior (Stress).

Preview report offers a nonjudgmental approach to individual differences. It is designed to be both descriptive and prescriptive.
The Birkman Preview will also discusses the occupational and organizational perspectives that will shape teams, career and job role fit.

There are over 40 different reports that can address a variety of career needs. Here are just a few examples of these reports.

  1. Basic Report – Strengths & Needs analysis, Areas of Interest, Organizational focus, Occupations/Job Titles
  2. Hiring Selection Report
  3. Management Report
