Are you interested why someone behaves a certain way?
Why do we behave differently under stress?
Did you ever consider that what you consider a negative attribute might be an excessive virtue?

We probably all desire flexible and trustworthy colleagues in our team, and on the other hand we dislike colleagues who feel spineless and go with the tide. But it can be the same type of person, only that their virtue adaptability is excessive and we quickly label such a person with a negative label of being spineless.

With the SDI questionnaire on virtues and excessive virtues we can discover whether an attribute that we see as negative in some people might be their excessive virtue.

SDI (Strength Deployment Inventory): review and placement of virtues/advantages?

  • Attempts to recognize the motivation for a specific behavior.
  • Reveals the image of our behavior in conflict or under stress.
  • Reveals to us our regular and excessive virtues.

If we understand the motives and intents – our own and of the people around us – it is easier for us to understand other people’s behavior. This makes it easier for us to adapt our communication style and allows us to form better relationships.

Why is the SDI tool so effective?

It enables relaxed and open communication

One of the requirements for progress and development is open and relaxed communication, in which we address the matters that make it more difficult to understand each other. This is why SDI training programs rather focus on communication instead of long analyses. The advantage of the SDI tool is the ability to quickly motivate people to connect and communicate openly.

It helps us to understand the hidden reasons for a specific behavior

SDI offers a wide palette of ways to understand hidden reasons for people’s behavior. The participants of SDI workshops learn the ability to genuinely, deeply and sensibly understand the motivations that motivate people to their actions. To learn the correct behavior on the basis of the expected reaction of the other person is a step that will strengthen any relationship.

It helps us to understand the reasons for conflict

The SDI tool offers excellent answers to the question why conflicts occur. It also provides simple solutions and sensible changes which can prevent conflicts or help us resolve them. It also shows us who and what we are like when in conflict – this knowledge will help our interlocutors and colleagues if they take it into consideration when conflict occurs.

Reveals our virtues and excessive virtues

We all act according to the principle don’t harm others. At the same time, we often hear the labels arrogant, aggressive, stubborn, pushy, cold; or spineless, goalless, submissive, gullible … But a person we might label as inconsistent might be a person who is open to change. SDI reveals to us our virtues and also the attributes that we or others may recognize as excessive virtues.

SDI also helps to recognize:

  • what personal virtues we expect from a person at a specific work position or in a specific role;
  • how people see us in all our roles and conditions.

What will you gain with SDI?

  • A better connected team that will learn effective communication.
  • Understanding of the motivation for a specific behavior.
  • Recognition of our values.
  • Awareness of the behavioral patterns of our colleagues and their effect on others.
  • Less conflict in the company.
  • Better relationships.

The participants of SDI workshops learn the ability to genuinely, deeply and sensibly understand what motivates people’s actions.

»The workshop was great. It provides perspectives on attributes that follow us on every step and awareness of how everything has its advantages and disadvantages. The workshop provides personal insight, helping us to find areas where we can turn a disadvantage into our benefit, and it improves our understanding of the people around us. At the same time, it reveals how we, especially those working with people, must always keep in mind that the evaluation of what is important differs for each individual. I highly recommend this workshop.«
