Wouldn’t it be great if the people in your life came with an instruction manual? Imagine how much stronger your relationships would be if you understand what makes people tick -- both when things were going well and when there was conflict and opposition. Many of the world’s most successful individuals believe that being skilled in the art of relationships is a crucial factor in their success. These interpersonal relationship skills include an awareness and understanding that the way we see things may differ from how other people see things.

This workshop utilizes the SDI® (Strength Deployment Inventory®) and Relationship Awareness — a learning model for effectively and accurately understanding the motive behind behavior. When people recognize the unique motivation of themselves and others, they greatly enhance their ability to communicate more effectively AND handle conflict more productively.

The tools provided in this workshop help people to identify the source of their conflict and manage it more effectively—reducing unwarranted conflict and turning warranted conflict into opportunities for growth and the strengthening of relationships. These tools are unique among conflict management tools because they assess individuals' motivational values. They get at the reasons behind conflict behaviors and show how those reasons connect to an individual's motivational values when things are going-well. Read More.
