Design a blueprint for constructive communication
Trust is key to team harmony. And it's often won and lost in one area - communication. When team members aren't able to effectively communicate with each other, they can't work together to agree on expectations and accomplish team goals.
Birkman helps teams understand each other's preferred communication style, opening the door to constructive dialogue and healthy conflict. The result? Improved problem-solving and accelerated innovation.
Help leaders understand their team's workplace needs and stress triggers
It's easy to see how employees show up in the workplace, but much more difficult to understand the hidden needs that drive that behavior and factor into productivity and job satisfaction.
Like any relationship, the employee-employer relationship suffers when needs are not met. But how can leaders meet unspoken employee needs and make intentional efforts to minimize workplace stress?
The missing puzzle piece of employee workplace needs is uncovered with Birkman, allowing leaders to intentionally create a culture in which each employee can be most productive.
Prepare teams to engage in healthy conflict
Conflict is a natural part of the collaborative process but can be a significant obstacle to innovation and project management if managed ineffectively.
When team members have a greater awareness of personality differences that can cause conflict within the team, they can learn to engage in the healthy conflict that leaves everyone feeling respected and heard in the face of disagreement.
Develop appreciation of diverse personalities
A personality is like a fingerprint – no two are exactly the same. This means leaders will never manage two identical people, and team members are always adapting to personality traits different than their own.
These personality differences are often a source of division for teams. But what would happen if teams learned to harness and appreciate these differences for the unique impacts they make on collective goals? Birkman makes it possible.
Create a more collaborative workplace
For most teams, effective collaboration can mean the difference between success and failure. Birkman helps companies and teams collaborate more effectively by creating a shared purpose, ensuring clarity throughout the team, and fostering a culture of psychological safety.
The result? Less confusion and more connection.
