Birkman Assessment

Could You and Your Executive Team Benefit from the Birkman Assessment?

What is the Birkman Method?

As the leader in your organization you must understand who YOU are, how you are perceived, and what you need to effectively use your strengths before you can be successful leading others. The Birkman Assessment is a powerful tool that can help with that process.

The Birkman Method® consists of a 298-question personality assessment and a series of related report sets that facilitate team building, executive coaching leadership development, career counseling and interpersonal conflict resolution. 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 on-line and should take about 45 minutes to complete. It has been translated into 11 languages in addition to English.

In brief, The Birkman Method® includes the five following major perspectives:

  • 1. Usual Behavior - an individual's effective behavioral style of dealing with relationships and tasks.
  • 2. Underlying Needs - an individual's expectations of how relationships and social situations should be governed in context of the relationship or situation.
  • 3. Stress Behaviors - an individual's ineffective style of dealing with relationships or tasks; behavior observed when underlying needs are not met.
  • 4. Interests - an individual's expressed preference for job titles based on the assumption of equal economic rewards.
  • 5. Organizational Focus - the perspective in which an individual views problems and solutions relating to organizational goals.
