Perspectives Report Training
As described in recent Birkman Next communications, Freedom and Challenge will no longer be included in Birkman reports as part of the list of Components. The reason for this is that Freedom and Challenge are best regarded as attitudinal, rather than behavioural, since they describe perspectives that you have about the world and yourself.
But presenting an attitudinal Component as if it was a behaviour, has been a source of confusion for many people (for example, why the Challenge Component didn’t have a Needs or Stress score). Hence, Freedom and Challenge have been removed from the new Signature Report since Birkman International believe there will be improved coherence and consistency across the Component profile. As the Birkman Next project evolves, Freedom and Challenge will be presented separately from the behavioural Components in the more established Birkman reports.
More than this, however, Freedom and Challenge are much more complex scales that are unlike the other Components and we believe they deserve a dedicated training.
This training is designed for those that will use the Perspectives Report as a part of a robust and in-depth coaching relationship with respondents. The course focuses on using the new scales to help respondents understand the impact of their perspective of self and others. The course will help you prepare to use, analyse and interpret the Birkman Perspectives Report in your consulting practice.
- Recognize the science behind the four Birkman Perspectives
- Identify the concepts of Social Norms and Social Desirability and discuss them in different scenarios
- Describe the terms Distinctiveness, Alignment, Image Management, and Social Acuity and be able to interpret them accurately
- Recognize the high and low end of each Perspectives scale
- Use Birkman Component data to add insights into the Perspectives interpretation
- Recognize when a client is ready to use the Birkman Perspectives Report (This may be only 25% of your clients)
- Demonstrate confidence providing a feedback using the Birkman Perspectives Report
After completion of this workshop, the new Perspectives Report will be activated in your Birkman account. You will also receive credits to maintain your status as a Birkman Consultant.
The Perspectives Report will be a separate purchase, in BDirect, and is not included in the price of the Signature Suite. The list price for the report is $124 and the Certified price is $99 per report.
Pre-requisite: You will be Birkman Certified and, to benefit from this high level training, you will need to be a regular user of Birkman. Prior attendance on a Birkman Advanced Programme with PN Group, or Senior Certification, will also be an asset. Participants are advised to complete the Birkman Next e-Learning modules prior to coming to class.
The course fee is £1,600 + VAT
