Clear Mission & Vision
Rather than focusing on WHAT we do, the SDI 2.0® helps us understand WHY we behave and HOW we relate to each other. Using Relationship Intelligence (RQ), the SDI 2.0 provides a common language for understanding what’s important.
Relationship building is more than a soft skill, and the SDI 2.0 plays a direct role in helping us relate to others – building our ability to improve dialogue.
With a focus on our Motives, the SDI 2.0 provides a critical connection to a key leadership skill – the “art of influence.” It is easier to communicate with and influence someone when what’s important to them is understood. This insight helps you choose the best approach for engaging people whose thinking and behavior appear much different from your own.
Master strengths – Learn how to express views and be heard by people whose motives are different from yours. Choosing the right strength for the moment changes everything.
Stay focused on what matters – In high-stakes situations, substantive discussion can quickly shift into personal attacks. Learning how people react to conflict and identifying warning signs early keeps conversations productive.
Embrace differences – Gaining perspective on what motivates your leader and other members of your team embed a culture of appreciation, which increases individual commitment to achieving shared outcomes.
