Assessments

Change Starts With Insight

Assessment is a key component of personal and professional growth. We leverage it as a core component of our leadership development and executive coaching approaches.

The Birkman Method

Using a variety of assessment tools selected to best match your needs, we help people discover their potential to grow, taking into account leadership traits that can be gleaned and measured depending on your organization's needs. We find that the psychology-based Birkman Method assessment is particularly effective in providing insights that enable people to self-manage, avoid unproductive behaviors, and improve their impact and effectiveness as leaders.

The Birkman Method has over 65 years of proven reliability and validity and is used worldwide (40+ countries, 20+ languages). By reaching further into more complex behavioral components, Birkman shines a light on the unique leadership styles among us. It paints a comprehensive picture of an individual's personality and motivations by measuring four core aspects of personality.

Keirsey

Temperaments are a configuration of observable personality traits, such as habits of communication, patterns of action, and sets of characteristic attitudes, values, and talents. Each temperament has its own unique qualities, strengths, communication preferences, and challenges. Keirsey has identified four basic temperaments: Artisan, Guardian, Idealist, and Rational.

Understanding one's temperament can enhance self-awareness and self-management, two key leadership skills. Leaders also need to recognize different temperaments to better communicate with and leverage the strengths of each type of person.

"Any time we're in session training, the thing that I like the most is the time we spend applying training concepts to specifically the issues that we have. As an executive coach, Mike is able to take the complicated and turn it to the simple."

"The Birkman was frighteningly accurate. Also, the results were absolutely non-judgmental in approach; important for the subject to objectively review the results for maximum personal benefit."

"I really liked working together with our management team in these sessions. It has helped the entire team to open up about the issues they face, offering solutions and common experiences. The sessions have also created a new level of accountability and opened communication among the team, which has helped us determine when we need to pivot and reassess versus when we need to realign our thinking."
