​​​​Strengths can backfire, despite good intentions. This happens when we use a strength too frequently, too intensely or at the wrong time altogether. Overdone strengths have the potential to trigger conflict, damage relationships and derail productivity.

How We Prioritise for Effectiveness

​The Overdone Strengths Portrait allows people to see how they use – and at times misuse – their strengths. A behavior that’s well-intended can backfire when it’s perceived as a negative action because it’s overdone or used in the wrong situation.

3.    The Overdone Strengths Portrait allows people to see how they use – and at times misuse – their strengths. A behavior that’s well-intended can backfire when it’s perceived as a negative action because it’s overdone or used in the wrong situation.
People tend to rely on the strengths they prioritise at the top of their portrait and avoid the ones they place at the bottom. This can lead to using strengths that aren’t effective or to overusing certain strengths, which often is counter-productive and can lead to conflict.
Today’s workforce is more and more diverse, so it’s critical to understand how differences impact our interactions. The SDI provides a base for understanding who we are and what motivates us, and it provides the same insights into others. It delivers a common and memorable language that guides people toward greater understanding and interpersonal effectiveness.

The Strengths Portrait is an ideal tool for defining individual strengths and for defining the strengths of a team or group culture.
The SDI is a “dual-state instrument,” meaning it shows the degree and nature of changes from the things-are-going-well state to the conflict state. People are more likely to go into conflict over things that are important to them which the SDI uncovers – a critical insight in today’s high-change business environments.
