All of our services are based on an in depth assessment of interactive abilities, styles and skills. We customize our work to the needs of each individual and organization. We believe that success is based on the degree to which individuals can find meaning and satisfaction in a changing world. Our core competencies in personal development use an array of assessment technologies to realign individual performance through an understanding of passion, interest and ability.

Our expertise in the use of our varied methodologies helps guide the individual to build behavioral range into their ability to respond to a turbulent and unpredictable world.



If you’re looking for help in answering the question, “Who am I” you’ve come to the right place.  Supported by an unrivalled database of occupational and behavioral information, the Birkman Method helps you understand, not underestimate, your strengths, and to take down preconceived barriers that limit your personal achievement and development.

For more than 60 years, professionals, independent consultants, executive coaches, and educational institutions have used The Birkman Method with over three million individuals. The Birkman Method accurately measures productive behaviors, stress behaviors, underlying needs, motivations and organizational effectiveness. The Birkman Method maximizes human potential and achieves results that are both superior and sustainable.

The Birkman Method consists of a 300-question behavioral assessment and a series of related report sets that guide clients through personal and professional exploration and growth.  Areas of focus include:
•    Career and leadership development
•    Team building
•    Support for young adults in their search for majors and career paths
•     Facilitating organizational dynamics.

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 30-40 minutes to complete. It is available in 11 languages.

Organizations use The Birkman Method® to:
• Improve communication
• Increase management effectiveness
• Build cohesive teams and reduce conflict
• Improve sales
• Improve profits through better hiring decisions
• Discover hidden potential of current employees for greater productivity
• Reduce turnover
• Develop accurate job descriptions

Values are traits or qualities that represent an individual’s highest priorities.

Values are the “north star” of your personal and professional compass.  It’s important to know what they are so that you can “course” correct when necessary as well as lay out a plan for your future journey as you strive to reach your goals. - download the Values Assessment and identify your core values.

Your core values reflect what is truly important to you in your work and life. These are not values that change from time to time or situation to situation, but rather they are the essence of who you are. Use the results of the assessment to set your direction as you move toward your desired future.
