Conflict Dynamics Profile (CDP)

The Conflict Dynamics Profile (CDP), an assessment instrument measuring conflict behaviors, is an excellent resource to increase self-awareness and improve conflict management skills. The CDP is unlike any other assessment tool in that it focuses specifically on conflict behaviors, rather than styles. It helps individuals and teams understand how they respond to conflict, what triggers can escalate conflict, and how to manage conflict more effectively.

Two versions of the instrument — the CDP-Individual (CDP-I) and CDP-360 — emphasize an action-oriented approach which leads to real improvement. A thorough Development Guide, Managing Conflict Dynamics: A Practical Approach, provides information and tips for coping with conflict and building strong interpersonal relationships.

Entrepreneurial Mindset Profile (EMP)

The Entrepreneurial Mindset Profile (EMP) is an empirically-based, cutting-edge assessment tool based on extensive research into the traits, motivations and skills of entrepreneurs. Available in self-report and team report formats, the EMP can help leaders and individual contributors alike assess the degree to which their teams are utilizing an “entrepreneurial mindset.”

LDI offers customized programs using the EMP to address specific needs. The EMP can be incorporated into programs designed to assess and promote competencies such as innovation, creativity and growth leadership. Alternatively, it can be used to benchmark a team’s entrepreneurial capacity prior to the design of a program, so that the program can accurately target the team’s specific opportunities for development.
