Working together productively does not come naturally to everyone. Have you ever observed or experienced a situation where organizational effectiveness in the workplace suffered because of differences among individuals? This challenge is all too common as differing work styles and conflict can lead to reduced efficiency, increased employee absenteeism and turnover. In today’s business environment, effective interpersonal relationships are essential to a healthy workplace.
Fortunately, there are ways to improve interactions among individuals to support organizational renewal and leadership development. The quality of the relationships among members of an organization can have an impact on its performance; people collaborate more effectively when they understand themselves and others better, and when they recognize the value of each other’s strengths.
SDI (Strength Deployment Inventory) is a suite of tools based on “Relationship Awareness”. It consists of a series of instruments that focus on emphasizing people’s strengths, and suggests how those strengths may be used to improve work relationships. Whether you need to manage talent to attract, to engage, to retain the best or, want to build leadership skills for better work relationships, the SDI suite of tools can meet your business needs alone or in combination with other Relationship Awareness tools. The SDI builds self-awareness and openness to diversity, and enhances the participant’s ability to communicate effectively and to deal with conflict productively.
The SDI, can be helpful in numerous contexts including – developing team strengths, enterprise renewal, talent management, leadership development, career development, change management, assessment of organizational culture, coaching, communication skills development, project management, and conflict resolution.
