Birkman Advanced Interpretation (Houston)

May 21 @ 8:30 am - May 22 @ 5:00 pm

Led by Patti Hansen
May 21-22, 2019
Houston, TX

Registration Deadline: May 17

This comprehensive two-day seminar builds on the foundation of the knowledge gained from Birkman Signature Certification. Class size is limited to allow small-group interaction with the seminar leader, who has extensive knowledge and experience in using Birkman.

Day One explores the impact of scoring patterns on each individual Component. The relationship between Usual and Needs scoring –and the resulting gap– will be a key focus on properly interpreting the impact of that Component on behavior.

The Components are also explored in-depth from a social psychology context with core emotional and rational factors identified. We also explore how the Components are identified on the Birkman Map, as well as statistical pairings of Components that can be used to bring insight to the conversation when that “natural” pairing is broken.

Day Two shifts the focus from one Component to multiple Components, and onto “real world” issues and topics that are impacted by combinations of several Components. We know that most people with high Physical Energy Usual scores also have low Thought Usual scores. But why? And what is the impact on decision making if that pattern is reversed?

After exploring all of these new insights into the instrument, participants will engage in case studies that will challenge even the most experienced Birkman Certified Professionals.

NOTE: Completion of this course is one of the requirements for Birkman Advanced Certified Professional (BACP) status.
