Understand the impact you make to your organization
The impact of your mindset, behavior, and workstyles trickle down throughout the rest of the organization. Your focus should be on making a positive impact and creating a culture of continuous improvement. After all, you set the example for the entire organization.
By developing leaders through Birkman data, you equip them with the ability to guide members towards shared goals, navigate complex challenges, adjust their behaviors, and take accountability for their workstyles.
Uncover how your behavior drives your decision-making
How do you lead? Do you make gut decisions, rely heavily on processes and data, or lean on talking things out with other people?
Birkman can help leaders understand their decision-making process, risk tolerance, and the role that their perspectives play in those decisions. The result is greater trust from team members – an important factor in effective collaboration and a team’s ability to be at its best.
Aid in succession planning for high potentials
For the team members you foresee climbing the ladder in your organization, it’s important you start developing them before they’re leaders.
Birkman can help you identify these high potential employees on a deeper level than just job experience by looking at their personality, behavioral perceptions, mindset, and motivation. This can determine who is best fit to lead.
See yourself clearly through the lens of perception
Your behaviors as a leader probably differ from your team’s perceptions of your behavior. Learn the unique strengths you can tap into as a leader, as well as how your team may be impacted when those strengths are overused and become your blind spots.
Provide more effective feedback to your team members
Teams deliver their best effort with real-time coaching, but every team member receives feedback differently depending on the delivery.
By understanding your own communication style as well as the preferred communication style of individual employees, Birkman helps you tailor feedback in a way that energizes rather than discourages your team.
