  16. 16. What is the issue? How? Why?Communication ConflictWork-related Relationship-orientedstress stressProblem-solving and Emotion andDecision-making EngagementIntra-Personal Inter-personal comfortcomfort zones zonesTeam style Team culture
  17. 17. How do you sell SDI® to an MBTI® culture?Common MBTI objectionsType is a “box”Forced choice questionsToo complexNot self-evidentNot easily remembered
  18. 18. Why not use MBTI® + SDI®?What I want (SDI) and how I go about getting it (MBTI)What is emotionally satisfying and what I have mental energy forRetention – what I do vs. why I want to do itConnect purpose (SDI) and work style (MBTI)
  19. 19. Why not use MBTI® + SDI®?• Richer discussions about what it means to be “us”• See more of a person through multiple lenses• Be more effective at explaining SDI  Blue Thinker  Extravert/Introvert Hubs
