The Birkman Method® is a state of the art and industry leading assessment tool that provides highly personalized guidance to set career direction and refine professional focus.

Personalized reports are generated after completing The Birkman Method® assessment which consists of 298 questions and takes approximately 30-45 minutes to complete. Gone Pro offers two custom reports, the Career Management Plus Report and the Strengths and Needs Report, priced at $45.00 each and available online at www.gonepro.com.

Career Management Plus Report:
The Career Management Plus can be a valuable tool for clarifying career direction, assisting in career transition and capitalizing on innate preferences that contribute to job satisfaction and success. This report is designed to give you a deeper understanding of yourself and the career options that are your best fit.

The first portion of your personalized report accurately measures five important dimensions of who you are:

· Areas of Interest: indicates the type of work that you are more likely to be drawn to.
· Ideal Work Environment: environment that offers the most ideal fit based on how you formulate solutions and what you value within an organization
· Strengths on the Job: defines your effective work style and unique strengths when dealing with relationships and tasks.
· What You Need From Others: your expectations of how others should relate to you; reveals what influences/motivates your behavior.
· Stress Behaviors: helps manage your less-than-effective behavior when your underlying needs are not being met.

This is followed by a detailed profile analysis comparing your degree of match to successful individuals in various Job Families and Job Titles. By combining your personal profile with your skills and abilities, you are able to gain a complete understanding on how you can contribute to the career best suited for you.

Strengths and Needs Report:
The Strengths and Needs report describes and interprets an individual's significant strengths and basic motivational needs. The report provides information for supervisors and managers who deal with individual problems, conflict resolution or stress management. It is especially useful in teambuilding and relational coaching. In-depth, non-judgmental descriptions are provided of an individual's strengths, needs and potential stress behavior if needs are not met.
