We can also create a custom, professionally-led workshop for your team’s needs, whether – improving team dynamics, motivating teams, or simple team building. For other ideas, check out our blog.
Q: I have a team of people not interested in spending time on developing communication skills. Can Birkman help?
A: Birkman is a great solution for those that are in the STEM fields or those that may be more naturally interested in their project execution than communication styles, and some of our largest clients love using Birkman with software engineers, accountants, and other technical or scientific roles. Focus on the hard numbers. Our 1 to 99 scales for the Birkman Components show percentile scores that will resonate with those more comfortable describing styles in this way.
Q: What makes Birkman the best for Team Building?
A: Birkman has many unique components. Our “Needs” element helps you understand what you need from coworkers to stay productive and less stressed, plus how you can support them. Birkman explains the applicable “why” behind the fact that 70% of the time, the way we act is not how we want to be treated by others.
Q: How can I incorporate Birkman into my team’s daily routine?
A: Using Birkman creates a memorable language to discuss personality in the workplace. The use of Birkman symbols, colors, and component names crafts a language that can become a part of the fabric of an organizational culture so that you have a non-judgmental way to discuss stylistic differences that can be assets or challenges for the team. We also have a variety of products that you can incorporate into meetings and conversations.
In every organization, unique personalities merge to create a dynamic environment that drives morale, engagement, and performance. Personality diversity leads to higher, more holistic performance but also increases the probability of misunderstanding and conflict within the team dynamic.
Connecting teammates on a high-performing team with differing communication and work styles is one of the key challenges that organizations face. Birkman provides the tools to integrate diverse individuals into productive teams that achieve better productivity and success, and have the framework to resolve conflict and become more resilient. Birkman allows for individuals to have a better sense of self-awareness.
