Conflict is an unavoidable aspect of all activities involving two or more people. Indeed, conflict dealing with optimising solutions and clarifying goals and objectives is desirable and can lead to far better results than any individual could have managed alone.

Conflict arising because of misunderstandings, different fundamental values, and various personality styles, however, can waste large amounts of time and significantly damage team synergy and productivity.

This two-day seminar is based on the widely acclaimed Strength Deployment Inventory (SDI) instrument developed by Elias Porter which guides the participants to recognise some of the important sources of avoidable conflict and to deal more effectively with conflict when it arises.

The SDI is a self-development tool that gives us an indication of what really makes us tick and why we do the things we do. It looks at our motivations when things are going well and when things are going less well.

The underlying assumption of the SDI is that all human beings need to interact with others in a way that makes us feel good about ourselves and at the same time makes the other person feel good about him or herself. The SDI encourages us to think about behaviour not as an end in itself but as a vehicle that is driving us towards a greater feeling of self-worth. By better understanding these motivations we are more able to build effective relationships both personally and professionally.

The SDI is based on more than 30 years of research by psychologist Elias H Porter into self-concept from which he developed his Relationship Awareness Theory ™.

You will better understand how your fundamental values guide your behaviour and how this can lead you into avoidable conflict situations with others who have different values.

You will gain more clarity about how you go through the stages of conflict and better see where you have choices and alternatives that can lead to better results for you and for your colleagues.

You will have an opportunity to practice and refine your new skills in a relaxed and stress-free environment through numerous exercises and discussions.
