Relationships are connections built on a foundation of shared experiences and future expectations. Core Strengths Relationship Intelligence helps teams to identify past misperceptions, apply the right approach to the moment, and co-create a better way to work together in the future.
We will encourage greater self-awareness, through the application of The Strength Deployment Inventory 2.0 (SDI 2.0) which examines motives, behaviours, and strengths.
Using this and other appropriate diagnostic tools as the foundation for understanding, we work with individuals and teams to facilitate feedback, enable more clear and accurate understanding of others and improve relationships.
