I’m pleased to announce that I am now a certified administator of the Conflict Dynamics Profile and have added this excellent tool to my value-added services for clients.
The CDP is a powerful and well-designed individual or 360-degree instrument for assessing conflict behaviors in the workplace, building self-awareness of conflict triggers and responses, and suggesting practical approaches for strengthening behaviors that promote effective workplace conflict resolution. Unlike style-based instruments (which also have their good uses), the CDP focuses on behaviors, giving it an action orientation.
Developed by the Leadership Development Institute, an affiliate of the Center for Creative Leadership, the CDP is a well-designed and psychometrically sound instrument. It can be completed in about 20-25 minutes, either online or on paper, and comes with a practical and in-depth guide for strengthening conflict management skills.
Applicable for all types of organizations, I will now be using the CDP as part of my existing training programs, as a stand-alone assessment for an individuals or workplace groups, and as part of my executive and conflict coaching services.
