Using the Strength Deployment Inventory for Self-Assessment & Team Building


Course Description

This workshop will help participants learn how they relate to others by exploring motivational styles and conflict. The workshop centers on the Strength Deployment Inventory (SDI) 2.0, a motivational assessment tool that provides an understanding of what drives you and what drives others. This tool also helps you assess the strengths you draw upon when you are faced with conflict in relationships. These principles can enhance your self-awareness as a leader and can also be applied in your personal relationships. SDI 2.0 offers insight into two different situations: 1) how you respond to situations with others when all is going smoothly and 2) how you relate to others when you are faced with conflict. The assessment provides four views of a person: a Motivational Value System, a Conflict Sequence, a Strengths Portrait, and an Overdone Strengths Portrait. In this workshop there will be opportunities for you to consider your own motivations, and how they impact your relationships with employees, peers, and supervisors. All participants in this workshop will complete the SDI 2.0 assessment electronically prior to attending.
