Conflict Dynamics Profile®

The Conflict Dynamics Profile (CDP) is an assessment instrument that focuses on conflict behaviors in the workplace.  I use it as a tool for coaching individuals and strengthening teams.

The CDP provides a powerful way to improve self-awareness of how one typically “shows up” in conflict. It also provides a practical guide for improving behaviors that promote collaboration and effective conflict resolution.

It addition to creating a detailed profile of a respondent’s conflict behaviors, the CDP identifies the unique triggers, or “hot buttons,” that they find particularly bothersome.

Two versions of the instrument, the CDP-Individual and the CDP-360, are available.  The former is completed by the respondent alone.  The latter, 360-degree version enables up to 30 colleagues to provide feedback as to how they perceive the respondent’s approach to conflict.

The CDP is a validated assessment that has been taken by over 12,000 businesspeople.  It can be completed online in about 20 minutes.
