    Results Through Relationship Intelligence

      Presenter:  Michael Brown

       Title: Master Facilitator

       Organization:  Core Strengths

        It all starts with the SDI 2.0 Assessment. Every participant will have the opportunity to complete this assessment, for free ($135 value!). This award-winning, scientifically validated assessment provides four views of a person. It reveals why they do what they do, and how they relate to others. Using Relationship Intelligence (RQ), the SDI 2.0 provides a common language for understanding what’s important to the people on your teams, and how they can work together more effectively. It provides tools for choosing the right strengths to make the right decisions, even in high-stakes situations. During the webinar, we will break down results and discuss how to leverage our strengths for greater effectiveness in the workplace.

     

    For the best experience, participants are encouraged to complete the complementary 15 minute SDI 2.0 Assessment prior to the event. Link will be provided at the time of Event Registration and will be active February 16, 2023 through March 19, 2023.


    During this interactive remote event, participants will learn:

    1. How to gain a greater understanding and appreciation of individual motives and strengths

    2. The ability to tailor communication-based on individual motives and preferences

    3. Understand diverse personalities and how that can trigger conflict

    4. Discover your strengths and deploy them at the right time for the right reason for greater effectiveness
