One of the first steps to take, as you focus on the direction that you want to go in your life and career changes that you want to make, is to evaluate what you already know about yourself but also to discover some new things.
At Painted Turtle Partners, we are Certified Consultants of the Birkman Method. This is a valid, reliable, scientific assessment of personality, social perception, and occupational interest developed in the 1960’s by Dr. Roger Birkman, Ph.D. The assessment is used to identify behavioral strengths, motivational needs, stress behavior, and occupational interests. Results are used to support career development and transition, employee coaching, leadership development, team building, and conflict management.
You will find that most assessments highlight your usual behavior and interests. However, the Birkman Method goes a step further by identifying your individual needs. These needs may not be visible to others and you may not be aware of them yourself. It also identifies your stress behavior when your needs go unmet.
If you, your team, or your organization are trying to take performance to the next level or you are ready to make some career and life changes but you aren’t sure of the direction to go, a fresh perspective could benefit you. While you can certainly talk with those close to you or others within your organization, what you may benefit from is an outside expert. As Certified Consultants, a few benefits that we can provide include:
Objectivity– An unbiased view of the situation or challenge
Special skills-Experience applied to the situation or challenge
Motivation-Focus, clarity, and confidence for taking action
Accountability-Commitment to action consistent with desired results

“The reality of life is that your perceptions – right or wrong – influence everything else you do. When you get a proper perspective of your perceptions, you may be surprised how many other things fall into place.” —Roger W. Birkman, Ph.D.
