Team performance solutions

For the best coaching results, you need more than an assessment. You need solutions.

Our assessment is the best in the industry, but it’s only the beginning of the Birkman journey.

Accessible to every employee

Across entire organizations, Birkman coaches make the greatest impact with the most precise tools.

The best results come when coaching is accessible for every employee. Some assessments and coaching programs are designed only for leaders and executives, while others are used for those within the ranks.

Our suite of solutions let organizational coaches impact organizations at scale, providing opportunities to engage with companies for consistent, long-term results.

Grounded in positive psychology

Coaching through the lens of positive psychology

At Birkman, we don’t focus on the dark side of personality. Our coaching framework sheds light on the potential each employee has to contribute to the team, as well as any behavioral blind spots that could be blocking career success.

The balance in this approach means that you can help each client – from the college classroom to the boardroom – better understand themselves and improve business relationships and outcomes.

Talent Selection Icons Unique Work Style

Provides coaching around key business problems that hinder organizational performance

Talent development. Team performance. Selection and alignment. Every business leader knows these are the human capital issues that can stand between good companies and great companies.

Birkman provides the resources you need to help companies overcome these common – but complicated – obstacles to organizational performance. The result? Clients who respect your contribution and refer you to others.

Icon needs

Only Birkman highlights what employees need to be at their best in the workplace  

It’s easy to see how people show up at the office. But how an individual behaves is often different than how they want to be treated. And it’s the gap between the two that can lead to conflict and stress.

Your clients will be amazed at the difference it makes when they understand their own workplace needs and those of their teams. Relationships improve, stress is reduced, and engagement soars. And it’s only possible with Birkman.

Icon perception

From the individual contributor to intact teams, Birkman solutions provide broad and deep organizational impact.

The best coaches understand that everyone needs to be reading from the same playbook for teams to connect and win. 

That’s why we’ve developed robust coaching frameworks designed for both the employee and team levels. From highlighting how behavior combinations affect team chemistry to pinpointing the foundations every high-performing team needs to excel, Birkman places your coaching fingerprint across the organization.

Icon library

Our ongoing learning resources ensure the best coaching tools are always at your fingertips.

Management Consultants

Working through critical business problems with clients is what you do. And there’s a common thread running through the fabric of things like supply chain, finance, and strategy – people. 

Without the right people and leadership team in place and working in harmony, a company will always fall short of its goals. When you coach with Birkman solutions, this part of the performance puzzle clicks into place.

Executive Coaches

Whether you’re working with existing leaders or those rising through the ranks, you need the right tools to uncover the strengths, blind spots, and mindset they’ll bring to the role.

Birkman insights help you instill self-awareness and develop actionable coaching plans for leaders to hone the personality characteristics that will best serve their teams.

Organizational Coaches

Where there’s a team, there are differences in perception. And these differences can lead to conflict that fractures organizations of all sizes.

Birkman individual and comparative data pinpoints the areas that can divide teams, and unites them through solutions centered on providing purpose and clarity within their roles.

Talent Development Managers

You work within the four walls of your organization, and have the most detailed knowledge of the opportunities and challenges within its teams. But you might not also always have the tools to affect the positive change you know is possible.

Creating momentum towards a healthy, engaging culture is within your reach when you partner with Birkman and integrate our solutions into the everyday flow of work. From individuals to teams and new job entrants to executives, we equip you to ensure all talent is working at their best.
