Emotional Intelligence Training Using the Strength Deployment Inventory (SDI)
Why SDI Works?
SDI helps explain the reasons for our actions
SDI de-personalises conflict
SDI is memorable
SDI honours our differences
How does SDI work?
Firstly you complete a psychometric questionnaire indicating how you are likely to behave in various situations, both when you are feeling good about yourself and when you are under stress or in conflict. The results are plotted on a chart which identifies your “Core Values” as one or a combination of colours. An individual’s “core values” will determine how they behave and how they perceive the behaviour of others. Therefore understanding your “core values” and those of the people you interact with has huge benefits in improving the quality of relationships.
SDI has greatest benefit when done in teams. The trainer will plot the whole team’s SDI profiles on a composite chart. The team then discuss the group’s strengths and potential blind spots and can revisit their results online indefinitely.
Why would I want to invest in SDI?
If your employees understand their MVS and those of their colleagues, managers and subordinates, they will be able to interpret behaviours more accurately and respond in an appropriate and constructive way. SDI will raise self awareness and emotional intelligence and if that new awareness is used, it will improve the quality of all relationships and therefore productivity.
