Personality Assessment

    Do you have a Key Person who just cannot seem to get along with others? Someone talented and valuable who nobody likes?

    Or maybe they’re the nicest person in the office who just has trouble dealing with someone with a very different management style?

    DBP’s Personality Assessment & Briefings will reveal your Key Person’s personality interests, style, needs, and stressors utilizing The Birkman Method® Assessment and detailed reporting.

    The Birkman Method ® is a scientifically developed, multi-dimensional assessment designed to assist achievement at work and at home.

    The Birkman integrates behavioral, motivational and occupational data together to predict behavior and work satisfaction across situations.

    Success achieved at work can largely depend on how well we understand ourselves and those with whom we interact.  Much of our time is spent working with others to accomplish objectives. People skills are one of the most critical we can develop.  

    The Birkman Method ® Assessment is a power tool to help understand ourselves and how we can better work with others and our teams.  The Birkman Method ® is the personality assessment for improving people skills and aligning roles and relationships for maximum productivity and success. It provides insight to:

    • Usual Behavior
    • Underlying Needs
    • Stress Behavior
    • Interests
    • Management Styles
    • Work Environment

    “The Personality Assessment with DB Pargman is incredibly insightful.
    Addressing people issues is often viewed as a soft skill – but the hard data of the Birkman and the objective reporting brought a whole new level of buy-in with our team.
    The Assessment showed quantitatively what I had been trying to convey subjectively for years!
    Thank you!”
