Data-driven insights

Use data-driven personality insights to create a focused talent development plan for each employee

Talent development is not one-size-fits-all. But often, organizations lack the data needed to step outside a cookie-cutter approach to moving employees up and across different roles.

Birkman uses personality measurements backed by 70 years of research to help leaders create a plan tailored for the intentional development of each unique employee.

Effective communication

Help employees communicate better and rise faster

Effective communication is a soft skill required for success in today’s workplace. But everyone has a different way of communicating, and what works for some won't work for others.

Birkman helps employees understand how their communication style impacts those around them, and adapt to the various communication needs. The result? Communication becomes a bridge to career success, not a barrier.

Core Strengths

Identifies the core strengths each employee can tap into

Every team member has key personality attributes they can harness to best perform their role and contribute to team success. Birkman helps you discover them.

Blind Spots

Sheds light on behavioral blind spots that could hold employees back

When personality strengths are overused, they become blind spots that can stall employee development.

Birkman shines a light on these behaviors and provides tips to control them so employees can chart a bright future for themselves.


Highlights what each employee needs from those around them to be at their best in the workplace

From the entry-level employee to the rising stars, we all have unspoken needs. Meeting these needs can be the difference between engaging an employee and encouraging them to head for the door.

Birkman identifies these silent expectations so employees can give voice to them and be a partner in creating their most productive work environment.


Pinpoints the activities that fuel employee motivation

Every team member is more energized when they’re able to spend time in the workplace doing things they’re passionate about. 

With Birkman insights, leaders know which tasks energize employees and which tasks drain them. When employees learn to seek out roles where their interests meet their work, they're more motivated and engaged.

Stress Burnout

Uncovers sources of stress that can lead to burnout

When workplace needs aren’t met, employees can slip into unproductive behaviors that hamper professional development.

Stress in the workplace can’t be avoided, but it can be managed. Birkman identifies the stress-induced, counterproductive behaviors of each employee and strategies for stopping them in their tracks.

Action Plan

Equips employees to create an intentional action plan for development

Insights are most useful when there’s a framework for forward momentum. 

Birkman helps employees turn personality insights into positive behavioral development with a step-by-step action plan template. The result? Employees who can take the most active role in their own development.


Provides access to a robust library of additional personality reports
