The Active Leader began in 2018, helping individuals break through their limitations and achieve greater levels of success, both personally and professionally. The Active Leader was founded on the principle that everyone has the capacity to be a leader, regardless of level or title.

If you desire to be a leader in any context, it is critical to first know who you are and what you bring to the table. By utilizing tools like Birkman and unbiased feedback from credible sources, individuals gain valuable, personalized insight that can be turned into actionable behavioral changes.

As individuals become better equipped at utilizing their strengths, they develop into leaders worth following, capable of inspiring and motivating others into action.

At The Active Leader, this is what we help you achieve.

The Birkman Method

The Birkman Method is a scientific, multi-dimensional assessment. With more than 65 years of proven reliability and validity, its time-tested innovation in organizational psychology uncovers deep levels of personality and perception, greater than any other assessment in the market. Millions of individuals around the world achieve greater success through the measurement of Interests, Usual Behavior, Needs, Stress, and career preferences, all uncovered with the Birkman Method.

Most behavioral assessments categorize individuals as “types” compared against what is considered normal behavior within a controlled testing environment. The Birkman doesn’t assume a “norm” or label people into “types.” You are who you are. And who you are is important, valuable, and perfectly great.


The Active Leader was founded by Aaron Stoddard. Aaron has a deep passion for investing in others. He has been mentoring and developing leaders since 2012. He is a Certified Master Consultant with The Birkman Method. Identifying interests is a small piece of the Birkman process and can elucidate aspects that impact how we communicate with others, define personal fulfillment, and more.
