Strength Deployment Inventory (SDI) FACTS
SDI® stands for Strength Deployment Inventory®.
SDI is unique as it IS a motivational assessment tool NOT a behavioural assessment.
SDI focuses on the motivation that drives behaviour.
SDI looks at how behaviour changes in conflict.
SDI integrates going-well and conflict motivations into one easy-to-administer tool.
SDI has immediate and lasting results.
SDI it sits with a suite of tools to develop and extend relationship effectiveness.
SDI is a self-reporting, self-administering and self-scoring educational inventory.
SDI takes a ‘whole-of-life’ focus rather than a particular role or specific situation.
SDI helps people recognise that differences in style and behaviour are positive.
SDI shows how to interact effectively when motivational strengths are different.
SDI teaches that motivational strengths, when ‘overdone’, become weaknesses.
SDI is not a test and does not attempt to judge good or bad.
SDI depersonalises conflict. It’s a non-threatening method for dealing with the interpersonal conflict that is too often avoided.
SDI is memorable. It’s an experiential tool promoting common sense concepts in a highly visual manner.
SDI honours our differences. It’s an inventory of the unique way we value different strengths and interpret the actions of others.
SDI is an effective way to seamlessly integrate relationship and conflict management skills into nearly any training and leadership development program.
SDI presents a picture of every relationship. The graphical charting method allows work teams or other relationship groups to view each other’s results simultaneously. In vivid colour, people learn how diversity in relating styles can be a source of strength and how these same differences could inadvertently lead to misunderstanding and conflict with others.
SDI is NOT a selection tool and should not be used as one.
