SDI Level 2 (Certification)


The next step in raising your Relationship Awareness… This advanced train-the-trainer workshop is two days of insightful learning packed with solid theory, experiential exercises, and practical applications. Explore the SDI’s application in conflict management, performance coaching, comparative models, and relationship-based 360-Degree feedback.

Successful completion of this workshop also fulfills your requirement to gain access to the entire suite of SDI tools. Level 2 (Certified) Facilitators can purchase and use SDI Feedback and Expectations tools which truly complete the relationship puzzle. Feedback tools encourage conversations about a need or desire to change perceptions and/or behaviours. Expectations tools clarify relationship expectations in personal and professional situations. 


CONFLICT MANAGEMENT: Take your understanding of conflict to new depths and participate in exercises that can be used immediately in your own work. Discover methods to find the source of conflict, recognize it earlier, and resolve it more effectively.

360-DEGREE FEEDBACK: Experience 360-degree feedback using several Relationship Awareness feedback tools. Learn how to apply these powerful tools and techniques in organizational settings to improve relationships and individual and organizational performance.

PERFORMANCE COACHING: Practice being a performance coach and receive the benefits of performance coaching based on the feedback and expectations you gather as part of the pre-course work. Be ready to provide this high impact service competently when the need arises.

COMPARATIVE PSYCHOLOGY: Explore the roots of Relationship Awareness Theory and how it relates to current models and practices. Learn the essentials of reliability and validity, what they mean and how to make practical use of the information.


“Very rarely do I attend a multi-day training course where even one day is excellent. All days of this course are excellent. Everything is applicable in my work and nothing was irrelevant. Impressive!”
