Live Webinar: How to Have Important Conversations with Confidence

Facilitator Certification

Become a Core Strengths facilitator in one of our upcoming live virtual instructor-led certifications.

Develop a culture of working better together

Train teams to thrive in uncertain times

Even the most highly skilled and well-intentioned workers can fall short when it comes to productively working together. And when people are unable to build on each other’s strengths or overcome differences, it can prevent your organization from reaching that next level of success.

By becoming a Core Strengths facilitator, you’ll learn how to introduce the powerful Strengths Deployment Inventory (SDI 2.0) training in your organization while meeting its unique culture and training needs. You’ll help team members communicate more effectively by understanding their own motives—and those of their coworkers—leading to improved communication and results.

In this hands-on, five-session certification workshop, you’ll learn how to guide people in your organization to:

  • Understand communication styles, based on their core strengths and underlying motives.
  • Choosing how to leverage their strengths more effectively — to improve decision-making.
  • Develop a deeper sense of personal responsibility for achieving results.
  • Navigating difficult conflict situations that inhibit effective communication.
  • Manage a high-stakes situation using the Results through Relationships Action Planner.

The Five Modules of the Core Strengths: Results through Relationships workshop include:

1. Assess Motives: When Things Are Going Well
In this first module, you’ll learn how people Assess Motives when things are going well. You will also unpack the results from your own SDI 2.0 (Strength Deployment Inventory) assessment, which will reveal your Motivational Value System (MVS). You’ll see how your MVS influences the way you work with others and how their MVSs influence the way they work with you. You’ll also dive into the Action Planner, which helps participants apply everything they learn throughout the program, so they can produce better results through relationships.

2. Assess Motives: When There Is Conflict
A person’s motives change when they are in conflict. Based on your SDI 2.0 results, you’ll learn how to Assess Motives when they change in conflict — and how that affects how you interact with others under those circumstances.

3. Bring the Right Strengths: Know Your Results
Everyone has 28 strengths at their disposal, and it is important to understand how to use the best strengths in each high-stakes situation. In this module, you’ll look at how you currently use your strengths and learn how to deploy different strengths to produce better results. You’ll also see and hear how your strengths are perceived by others and gain a new awareness about how your strengths affect your team relationships. Finally, you’ll be able to clearly and compellingly connect any strength to your motives, which makes them more powerful, effective, and sustainable.

4. Bring the Right Strengths: Prevent Overdoing
We all have characteristics that can make it difficult to work productively with others. These “weaknesses” often begin as personal strengths that are used to excess and have become ineffective or even lead to interpersonal conflict. In this module, you’ll look at the ways you over-invest in your strengths and how doing so limits your effectiveness. You’ll learn who you’re most likely to run into difficulty with if you overdo a strength. You’ll also take away insights about how to manage overdone strengths and turn them into productive forces.

5. Communicate in the Right Style: Use the Language of SDI
Core Strengths training is like learning a new language. We introduce you to a “collaboration vocabulary” that people can use whether they’re writing a crucial customer email, navigating a tricky conference call, or running an important meeting. When people have a clear goal in mind and have assessed their own motives and those of their stakeholder, they can literally speak the other person’s language. With structured practice, you’ll learn this skill and then apply it to a high-stakes situation where you need to produce a key result. You’ll leave the program with a completed Action Planner, to implement to get better results through relationships.
