SDI Certification Process
The SDI certification process has 3 key steps and will provide participants with advanced facilitation skills and access to the full suite of Relationship Awareness® tools. To help ensure the complete, accurate and ethical use of the SDI® assessments and Relationship Awareness Theory, Personal Strengths Publishing, Inc. requires that facilitators complete, at minimum, Level 1 SDI Certification to gain access to SDI self-assessments.
STEP 1: Level 1 SDI Facilitator Certification (L1)
The goal of our 2-day L1 workshop is to give you the skills, knowledge, and resources to start working with the SDI (Strength Deployment Inventory®) self-assessments. Learn the key principles of Relationship Awareness Theory, the basis on which SDI was developed. Discover how SDI and Relationship Awareness can seamlessly integrate relationship and conflict management skills into a variety of applications such as leadership development, team building, influence and communication. Successful completion of this course qualifies attendees to purchase, administer, and debrief SDI and instills the confidence to start working with the tools the very next day.
STEP 2: Use & Experience
The best way to reinforce new ideas is to start using them right away. Before moving to the next level, we require that you apply what you've learned in Level 1 and facilitate the SDI self-assessments at least five times in a group or coaching environment. Level 2 SDI Certification is an advanced application of Relationship Awareness tools and you will get more out of it with some real-world experience under your belt.
STEP 3: Level 2 SDI Facilitator Certification (L2)
The goal of our advanced 2-day L2 workshop is to give you the full picture of Relationship Awareness. This intensive train-the-trainer course is packed with solid theory, experiential exercises, and practical applications. Explore SDI's application in conflict management, performance coaching, comparative models, and relationship-based 360-degree feedback. Successful completion of this course qualifies attendees to purchase, administer, and debrief SDI Feedback and Expectations tools. Comparing the results of the feedback and expectations assessments with results from the self-assessments can reveal opportunities to be more effective and have a higher level of satisfaction in a situation or relationship.
