Change & Transformation Development

You can lead change. Here is how to do it

No mat­ter how you look at it, the world con­tin­ues to change — FASTER, but our abil­i­ty to keep up has­n’t kept pace!

If you as a leader have not the abil­i­ty to man­age change that is well received by your col­leagues, the chance for project fail­ure is high. There­fore you need to devel­op impec­ca­ble aware­ness of your behav­ior and of how oth­ers inter­pret it.

Personal Development

Do you want to make your dreams come true?

Did you ever had the sit­u­a­tion that you felt mis­guid­ed by oth­ers peo­ple advise? This was not your fault, but some­one else is not you, nor can meet your needs. He can’t put him­self in your shoes!

Use the Birk­man Method® to iden­ti­fy your per­son­al strengths and inter­ests, and use this as your foun­da­tion to deter­mine what you want to do with your life!

Group Assessment

By using the Birk­man Method® for team build­ing the focus is on the appro­pri­ate com­po­si­tion of form­ing a pow­er­ful team. Com­ple­ment­ing each oth­er in terms of each team mem­bers strengths is the goal, even though every­one is dif­fer­ent and hav­ing his / her own per­son­al­i­ty. The com­mu­ni­ca­tion styles and needs of the dif­fer­ent per­son­al­i­ty types can be illus­trat­ed and con­veyed to each team mem­ber in train­ing and coach­ing, in order to pre­vent con­flicts and mis­un­der­stand­ings. In addi­tion, a Birk­man team eval­u­a­tion makes weak­ness­es and improve­ment poten­tial vis­i­ble.


The Birk­man team eval­u­a­tion is already use­ful for 2–3 peo­ple. There is no upper lim­it. Usu­al­ly teams between 4 up to 20 peo­ple are eval­u­at­ed.


There is the option of the entire team eval­u­a­tion accord­ing to their strengths, work and lead­er­ship as well as lifestyles. If desired, each team mem­ber can also be com­pared with all or a spe­cif­ic team mem­ber to uncov­er conflict‑, but also com­ple­men­tary poten­tial.


Sequence of events:

  • every team mem­ber will receive an email with a link of the ques­tion­naire
  • The ques­tion­naire will be tak­en online in about 30–40 min­utes
  • The Birk­man Con­sul­tant devel­ops the hand­book and pre­sen­ta­tion incl. the per­son­al assess­ments
