"The Birkman Method helped our staff members better understand ourselves and anticipate potential friction points with each other. Combined with Dr. Lane’s guidance and insight, it has equipped us with wise, gospel-oriented postures for working together. We plan to depend on Tim's assistance to vet and integrate new staff for the foreseeable future."    Walter Henegar, Senior Pastor, Atlanta Westside Presbyterian Church

Dr. Lane led our Executive Team using the Birkman Method. The chief benefit is a vocabulary and set of concepts to help us interpret one another—so we don't have to hunt for "idols" to explain every point of tension among us. Birkman helped us see that we all have different sets of values, strengths, and needs. It is helping us be more charitable in our assessments of one another. We're hoping the Birkman could serve us as we hire, shepherd, and train our staff, and that it could help us with placement decisions and building team unity.  Peter Krol, President, DiscipleMakers

The Birkman Method has been extremely useful in assessing our staff at St. Paul's Presbyterian Church, Atlanta, GA.  With Tim's help we have been able to better understand the strengths and weaknesses of our team which has led us to a better hiring strategy as well as strategic planning for the future. Phillip E. Ellen, Ruling Elder, St. Paul's Presbyterian Church and Executive Director of Paladin Community Development

I have taken numerous personality assessments in my career and all of them have always left me a little uneasy about the results. They seemed to pigeon-hole people given the lack of nuance. This has not been the case with the Birkman! At the end of the day, the Birkman makes the person more human, with all of their complexity. As such, I trust the results of this test much more, both for myself and my team.  Tolivar Wills, Senior Pastor, St. Paul's Presbyterian Church, Atlanta, GA
