The Core SDI Experience

The Heart of Core Strengths is the Strength Deployment Inventory (SDI).

The SDI, a self-scoring assessment taken by more than 2 million people in 31 countries, plays a central role in the Core Strengths program — by measuring what motivates our behavior when things are going well, and how those motives change when we encounter conflict or opposition.

Whereas other assessment tools measure behavior, the SDI goes beyond behavior into the motives and values that drive those behaviors.

Core Strengths training participants take the SDI, and then interpret their results during the workshop — gaining valuable insight through discussion and analysis of their results in small, interactive groups.

An innovative video platform reinforces the insights that learners gain from the SDI.

Shown at key learning moments within each Core Strengths training session, the videos depict protagonists — an architect, an engineer, an executive — grappling with workplace challenges that every learner can relate to. Each protagonist demonstrates the behavior and cognitive patterns associated with a motivational system in the Strength Deployment Inventory.

As the videos unfold, the protagonists gain insight into what motivates their views of reality and their behavior. They discover how their perceptions of workplace situations are distorted. And they master the skill of accurately assessing situations and taking initiative with their strengths to generate exceptional results.

The videos model the learning journey that Core Strengths participants are also embarking on, creating a practical, memorable learning experience.
