Understanding "how you're wired"...

Insights into human behavior are invaluable.  Understanding how we tick allows us to put ourselves in the place of most potential.  Understanding how others tick drives human connectivity.  Knowledge is power.    

The great folks at Birkman International just released a new book, and it is already ranked by Amazon.com as one of the 10 Best Books of the Month (May 2013) within the Business and Leadership category.

Written by Sharon Birkman Fink, CEO of Birkman International and Stephanie Capparell, editor and writer for the Wall Street Journal.  

It is also worth mentioning that the book contains numerous client-stories as shared by Birkman consultants all around the world, including a few of mine.  

 

The Birkman Method® personality assessment combines various dimensions of an individual into one single assessment, and provides a comprehensive analysis that can be formatted in a great number of reporting structures. It provides the following major perspectives:  usual behavior, underlying needs, stress behaviors, organizational focus, and interests.
