Team’s that effectively communicate consistently perform at a higher rate and generally find more enjoyment in their work. Differing personalities can provide challenges to effective communication and in the most extreme cases even lead to team dysfunction.
Since we all behave and perceive the world differently, there isn’t a single how-to guide for dealing with the people we encounter in life.
Energy Sourcing leverages the Birkman Assessment & Method to uncover personality insights for each team member to help them embrace the differences that make each of us unique, instead of seeing differences as potential liabilities or areas of conflict.
For over 60 years, the Birkman Method has helped create a common language for communication within teams that enables individuals to understand their own personality strengths and how to better communication with others. Understanding each others strengths, establishes a solid foundation for teams to increase their emotional intelligence and productivity.
