Birkman Group Feedback
The Birkman Method® measures and reports behavioral data differently from most other assessments. Most assessments work hard to eliminate social desirability (the tendency to strive for creating a good impression) from participant responses. The Birkman Method® uses a participant’s understanding of social desirability along with motivational desires, to measure and report the way that person interacts in everyday life situations where people actually do color their behavior according to their understanding of social desirability.
Descriptive And Prescriptive – The Birkman Method® offers both descriptive and prescriptive information for the individual. Many instruments provide effective descriptions of certain personal mo- tivations and behaviors. The Birkman Method®, unlike most other assessment approaches, describes desires, strengths, motivational needs and stress reactions for the individual and provides basic recommendations for developing skills when faced with varying environments and people. This helps individuals manage life and work situations in ways that fulfill their motivational needs, and govern frustration where stress can cause reactions that so often damage relationships and occupational effectiveness. All of this is provided in a single integrated assessment and reporting system.

I have participated in many corporate development initiatives in my career and I can truly commit that this is the absolute best team exercise I have experienced. The most impact for the time spent - I promise.

Having taken our managers through the Birkman assessment and Michael's training, I'm happy to say that we're functioning as a team much smoother now. Having a better understanding of each other creates a great deal more efficiency -- not to mention, pleasure in working together!

I have always been skeptical when it comes to analytical testing. As I trudged through the questions of the Birkman I was doubtful that I would receive an analytical report that would truly teach me something new about myself or even how I might become a better leader. Upon receiving the report from the Birkman, I can honestly say that I was completely wrong in my skepticism. As I read through my report, I found myself nodding my head in agreement. There were even times where I said out loud “oh, that makes sense.” To further my pleasant surprise, I found it incredibly helpful to walk through our assessments with Dr. Godfrey. There you have it; I was wrong to doubt the Birkman test.

The Birkman is non-biased/ straight forward which you can continually reference as you make decisions. It will be an affirmation of your personality and an 'aha moment' in others. It helped me have an awareness of who I am and how to handle myself in different situations.
