Leadership Dynamics Using the Birkman Assessment

Faculty - Kelly Bean

The Birkman Method is a comprehensive report that details your outward behaviors and strengths, your motivational needs, and your reactive behaviors. It also measures your overall approach to problem-solving and your ideal work environment. The Birkman provides a framework to assist you in developing your leadership edge as a manager. The information provided to you in your report will guide you through becoming more self-aware of your behaviors and how others may perceive your style. It will also open your eyes to how you perceive others. In this session you will:

  • Build awareness of your effective (usual) behaviors
  • Identify your stress behaviors
  • Explore how you are perceiving others, and how they are perceiving you
  • Understand your needs
  • Explore how your style interacts with other styles
