(N.B. Emotional Intelligence I is a pre-requisite to this course.)

In this workshop, you will be introduced to the SDI (Strength Deployment Inventory). This development tool was created by psychologist Dr. Elias Porter, for effectively and accurately understanding the motives behind our behaviour (our Motivational Value System). When people recognize the values that drive their behaviour and the behaviour of others, they greatly enhance their ability to manage their personal and professional relationships, to communicate more effectively and to handle conflict more productively.
