MRG’s Individual Directions Inventory™ (IDI) captures the deep motivations that drive individuals to gain satisfaction in work and life.
The Individual Directions Inventory™ (IDI) is designed to measure an individual’s attraction toward specific situations and behaviors based on the types of emotional experiences the person is drawn to. The IDI provides feedback on 17 variables in 6 categories: Affiliating, Attracting, Perceiving, Mastering, Challenging and Maintaining. It is invaluable in understanding the links between a person’s motivation and their leadership behavior when paired with MRG’s Leadership Effectiveness Analysis™ instrument.
The IDI certification is designed to provide psychologists, experienced consultants and executive coaches with a detailed understanding of the IDI assessment instrument and its appropriate use in career and personal counseling. Attend this certification to become grounded in the variables measured in the IDI and to learn how to utilize this information to help individuals and teams reach their highest potential.
At the end of this certification, the learner will be able to:
