The Birkman Method ®
The Birkman Method ® provides strategic personality and occupational data. This data helps us understand particular needs, motivations, strengths and behavioral qualities within leaders, employees, students, and teams.
In order to understand each individual, we use a combination of personal interviews, self-reflection exercises and the Birkman Method assessment to create a complete picture. This picture helps guide action toward getting the individual or the team to its optimal work environment… an environment that both improves results and enhances job satisfaction.

THE HISTORY OF THE BIRKMAN® METHOD
In the late 1940’s, while developing a psychological screening test for the U.S. Air Force, WWII veteran Roger Birkman asked himself: how is it that two individuals can respond so differently to the same stress-inducing situation?
The answer—which led to a Ph.D. thesis, a training institute, and now, certified consultants providing services in 22 languages worldwide—was this: each individual has particular underlying needs and motivations. These deep-seated needs and motivations, in turn, drive the individual’s occupational interests, perceptions and behaviors (including how they respond to stress). So what’s “normal”—or ideal—for you may be the complete opposite for someone you work with. Or report to. Or manage. There is no one “right way” to deal with everyone, but the more you can understand the individual’s mindset—and your own—the better your chances for success.
