Certification Benefits

Becoming a recognised Birkman Certified Professional will provide the following benefits.



One of the reasons that Birkman is so effective in working with groups is that it validates all behavioural styles, emphasising that each individual has strengths to contribute. You’ll learn how to help different personalities on a team develop an appreciation for each other’s distinct strengths and resolve workplace conflicts with deeper understanding, patience, and finesse.

Understand the Complexities of Behavioural Style

You will practice your interpretation skills with several Birkman report profiles to see how combinations of personality traits may impact the working relationship of those with different patterns. Then, you’ll compare multiple profiles to predict potential collaborative issues and strengths commonly found among teams.

Birkman Signature Certification focuses on individual coaching, as a Birkman report can help immensely in coaching conversations. Self-awareness is the first step toward personal growth – both in developing your strengths and in adapting when the context of the situation doesn’t match your personal narrative.
