James was, in his words, a ‘middle-aged, middle-management civil servant’ who craved change. He had recently turned 40, prompting him to reflect extensively on life, career, and family. He wanted a fresh direction for these next two decades in the workforce. James was known for creative problem-solving, leading small groups well and for valuing a measure of autonomy in his policy-centric position. He knew his skills were transferable to other roles, but he struggled to see where he might fit in best. Also, he had only ever known a government work-culture; would he flourish or flounder in the private sector? He didn’t want to stop and start a range of careers in the hope of stumbling onto something. James was a good candidate for the Birkman® Career Report—benefitting from its clarity and direction. Perhaps you will too.
Individuals: How will the Report help me on a personal level?
This report provides an overview of personal characteristics. We delve into what motivates you, so that you’re more engaged in tasks and teamwork alike. We explore the setting in which you would be most effective, and by contrast, what workplace dynamics you find most destructive or distracting. We pinpoint the influences that impact how you see yourself as an individual (Self-Perception) and as a member of a broader professional or social community (Social Perception). All this helps shape your thoughts (Mindset) and in turn, how you perceive your role. You will come away understanding the most satisfying job families, roles and titles to consider. You will be guided to weigh the best pathway forward to meet your
interests and your needs.
