Category: SKU: 010 Tag:



Our Strength Deployment Inventory training materials enable learners to develop their self-awareness and awareness of others.

We all know that being surrounded by a high performing, engaged and motivated team is every leader and manager’s dream. Having the ability to understand how to intuitively adapt your style and behaviour, to get the most out of people is a critical skill for today’s world; but this requires a couple of things: an awareness of yourself and knowledge of others.

This workshop covers the critical principles learners will need to develop and maintain value-adding relationships, developing their awareness of their personal strengths and their understanding of how to navigate conflict.

The materials in this toolkit support the learning process when using the SDI® Self Edition workbook.

You must be SDI qualified to deliver this toolkit.  To enquire into becoming qualified, please contact Personal Strengths direct.  Additional SDI books are required to deliver this training content.
