Assessment tools promote reflection, critical thinking, and self-awareness and give leaders and teams  insight into their own and collective behaviors. This awareness  fosters understanding and a willingness to approach their interactions with more openness.

Conflict Dynamics Profile (CDP) assessment

The Conflict Dynamics Profile is one of the self-awareness instruments that we use for leadership development, executive coaching and conflict resolution in organizations.

The Conflict Dynamics Profile, an assessment instrument dealing with conflict behaviors in the workplace, provides a powerful way to improve self-awareness of what triggers conflict in individuals as well as how they respond to conflict. CDP is founded upon years of academic research and measures both constructive and destructive conflict resolution behavioral responses in individuals.

Two versions of the instrument – the CDP-Individual (CDP-I) and CDP-360 – provide practical solutions for promoting more effective conflict resolution. Based on these triggers and responses, the Conflict Dynamics Profile then provides practical approaches for improving behaviors that promote more effective workplace conflict resolution.

The two instruments can be effectively combined in organizations.Typically, the CDP-360 is used with managers and executives and the CDP-I is used with supervisors and other employees. Since both instruments are based on the same model and use the same vocabulary, people are able to communicate more effectively with each other, regardless of which version they have taken.

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)

It is easy to assume that the same basic urges and motivations drive all people. In reality, people have many similarities and many differences, which can lead to misunderstandings and conflicts. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI®) is the best-known and most trusted personality assessment used in organizations to provide a framework for personal, team and leadership development. The MBTI profile reveals how we perceive, make decisions and interact with the world, giving insight into our motivation and the motivation of others.

The four-letter MBTI type is a shorthand about the interaction of the four mental functions and which ones are preferred to use first. MBTI sorts for preferences and does not measure trait, ability, or character.


MBTI is a popular self-awareness instrument because:
• It is self-reporting and non-judging.
• There is a tremendous amount of research behind it.
• It is an international instrument and has proven valid across cultures.
• It allows for opportunities to understand and to be understood by others.
• The theory underlines that all people have access to all of the different personality traits but   each individual has a preference for certain traits over their opposites.
• It concentrates on the strengths of each preference.
• It was developed by studying normal people in their day-to-day lives and it indicates normal rather than abnormal behaviors.
