Two Powerful Assessment Tools

Core Strengths Accountability is based on two valid and reliable assessments—The Strength Deployment Inventory (SDI) and the Strengths Portrait (SP).

Core Strengths Accountability participants complete the SDI and the SP assessments prior to attending their training, then interpret their results during the workshop—gaining insight into the motivations influencing the strengths they choose. While most training programs focus on teaching a standard construct—regardless of the learner—Core Strengths Accountability begins by identifying the strengths of each learner and how those strengths connect to their motivations—to generate accountability and ownership of their results.

The SDI Report

The SDI®

The SDI is a powerful and effective tool for understanding the motives and values that drive behaviours. The SDI guides people to better understand themselves and others, and that understanding allows them to lead with clarity and empathy, build stronger teams, and more effectively navigate conflict.

Taking the SDI is the first step toward creating a culture of ownership on teams—the key benefit of Core Strengths Accountability.

The Strengths Portrait Report

The Strengths Portrait

Our most common behaviours are the strengths we use to navigate situations with other people, whether in a one-on-one conversation with a co-worker, a team meeting, or while interacting with an important client. The Strengths Portrait provides an accurate picture of how we prioritize those strengths, and enabling us to choose the right strengths for any given situation.

The Strengths Portrait is an ideal tool for defining individual strengths and for defining the strengths of a team or group culture. Along with the SDI, it enables people to personally reflect on the behaviours they use and the choices they make.
