Communicate better

Avoid roadblocks caused by miscommunication

According to a 2023 study, poor communication costs U.S. businesses an estimated $1.2 trillion annually from losses in productivity, duplicate work efforts, and increases in turnover. With so much on the line, it’s important to make sure your teams are communicating effectively.

Birkman helps teams understand their different communication styles and how to bridge the gap between these styles so they can stay aligned and on track.

Collaborate more effectively

Turn frustration to collaboration

Meaningful team collaboration unlocks the innovation that propels your organization forward, but can be stalled by frustration around unclear direction or expectations. 

Birkman helps teams collaborate more effectively by creating a shared sense of purpose and ensuring clarity in every stage of the project lifecycle.

Encourage team transparency

With all their cards on the table, teams always win

Effective teams require connected people. Without meaningful connections, people are less likely to speak up, less likely to take risks, and less likely to raise important issues.

Birkman clears the path for robust innovation by creating a team culture grounded in psychological safety. When no team members are silenced, the sound of team success can be heard.

Ignite team engagement to drive performance and do better work

An engaged team is an effective team, and you want your team to stay engaged. You want your team to bring their best ideas and challenge each other in a healthy and productive way.

Birkman helps teams do just that. By giving insights into team dynamics and personal workstyle preferences, Birkman is able to help team members be their most effective selves—improving engagement and keeping teams stable.

A healthy team has a shared sense of purpose. They know how to celebrate wins and help each other during challenging situations.

Birkman helps your team understand how each member contributes to team chemistry through their unique strengths, motivations, and needs. And when teams use these insights to act with intention, they begin to understand the true power of “we.”
