SDI 2.0 is 3 Assessments in 1

While many tools focus on what we do, the SDI 2.0 goes beyond behavior into the motives and values that drive those behaviors. It measures motivation, conflict and strengths. SDI 2.0 is the most complete and holistic profiling assessment toolset in the world. The critical insights it provides enable leaders and team members to better understand how to influence people who think, behave, and communicate differently. The result is reduced conflict and increased collaboration and trust, building productive work relationships for sustainable results.

​​“What makes it great is its simplicity & complexity at the same time. The simplicity is that you’re one of 3 colours and that’s easy to pitch to my clients. The complexity is that it measures things that are way below the surface; specifically, motivation. By understanding this, you can move away from friction and speak their language to be effective.”

Discovering Motives

The SDI® 2.0

The Strength Deployment Inventory 2.0 (SDI) is an online assessment tool used by more than 2 million people in 31 countries, making it one of the most valid and reliable self-assessments available today. The SDI 2.0 is a powerful and effective tool for understanding the motives and values that drive behaviors. The SDI 2.0 taps into people’s basic need to better understand themselves and others and that understanding allows them to lead with clarity and empathy, build stronger teams, and navigate conflict more effectively.

Uncovering Strengths

The Strengths Portrait

Our most common behaviors are the strengths we use to navigate situations with other people — whether that’s in a one-on-one conversation with a coworker, a team meeting, or while interacting with an important client. The Strengths Portrait provides an accurate picture of how we prioritize those strengths, and this helps us take initiative in choosing strengths to achieve results.

The Strengths Portrait is an ideal tool for defining individual strengths and for defining the strengths of a team or group culture. Along with the SDI, it enables people to personally reflect on how they take ownership and initiative to accomplish their goals.

Managing Overdone

The Overdone Strengths Portrait

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.

The Overdone Strengths Portrait assessment identifies which strengths you tend to misapply, and how those overdone strengths impact your relationships and work. It describes how your specific overdone strengths can break down collaboration and cause tension — and the ways you can manage your strengths to prevent conflict and maximize performance.

Paper or Digital Versions

SDI 2.0 is available online or in paper versions. The paper editions are not tech dependent for the participants, can be scored by a facilitator at an event, and can be easily uploaded to produce paper or online reports.

The assessment produces a four-page report for the facilitator summarizing the results of the class and a 20-page personalized report for the participant that provides an overview of the results and key concepts, along with insights and information specific to the participant’s results.
