The Birkman Method: Your Personality at Work (Jossey-Bass, 2013) introduces a critical workplace assessment that has given millions of business professionals the awareness they need to reach a higher level of performance and personal satisfaction.
Whether you are looking for a job promotion, seeking peace within your team, or looking to improve your relationships, we can all benefit from learning more about what drives and energizes us. Finding common ground among different personalities can be difficult, but it is critical to a healthy work environment.
Unlike personality tests that rely only on self-descriptions, The Birkman Method® goes beyond behavior to give insight as to why certain things will satisfy or stress you. It also helps you discern your learned behavior and how that might differ from your true self. The assessment is built on the foundation that once you discover your own personality and interests, you can better understand and accept others, resulting in a more fulfilling work environment.
The free assessment that comes with the book helps you understand your interpersonal strengths and core interests to leverage to your greatest potential. Each purchaser of the book is invited to fill out the Birkman assessment to receive a brief complimentary personal report.
The Birkman can reveal some of the following truths:
- What kind of leader will you be?
- How do you take direction and assume authority?
- How do you relate to individuals and groups?
- Do you like to be spoken to in the same manner in which you speak to others?
- Does your public style differ from your personal preferences?
