SDI Quick Guide

Perform at Your Best, No Matter What the Day Brings.

Each day offers new opportunities and challenges. You interact with people who bring their own strengths, motives and expectations to the table. Add approaching deadlines, stalled projects and process changes to the mix, and you’re bound to run into some conflict.

When that happens, you don’t have time to read a book on managing personality types or take a workshop on interpersonal conflict. You need a ready solution for unexpected changes, urgent conversations and differing perspectives.

The SDI Quick Guide is your quick and easy reference for working with others and managing conflict, based on their Motivational Value System (MVS). The guide helps you improve relationships by understanding what energizes or hinders people. When you can recognize a person’s priorities and expectations, you can choose the most effective approach in any situation. The end result is healthy, positive interactions and more successful results.
The end result is healthy, positive interactions and more productive outcomes, otherwise known as interpersonal success.
