Conflict Dynamics Profile
The Conflict Dynamics Profile® (CDP) is an assessment instrument about conflict behaviours. This tool provides a powerful way to help people gain self-awareness about such things as their constructive and destructive responses to conflict.
There are two versions of the CDP. The CDP-360 and the CDP-Individual (CDP-I). The CDP-I is a “self report” (it looks at how people view themselves) and considers the respondents’ views on their constructive and destructive responses to conflict and their hot buttons. The CDP-360 is a full spectrum tool, which assesses not only the respondents’ self view. It also includes the perspective of their boss, peers and direct reports.
A report is provided for each version on what is assessed. For instance, the CDP-360 provides feedback on variables such as:
- what types of actions provoke the respondents
- how the respondents perceive their reaction when provoked
- how others perceive the way they respond to conflict
- how respondents react before, during and after conflict
- which behaviours may harm one’s position in a particular organization
Based on the results of the report from either the CDP-I or CDP-360, coaches work with individuals to help them improve specific behaviours and become more effective at conflict management.
The CDP is a psychometrically sound instrument, which shows solid evidence of reliability and validity. Easily completed in 20-30 minutes, this instrument comes with a comprehensive Development Guide, offering practical tips and strategies for strengthening conflict management skills. Applicable for all types of organizations, this assessment tool may be used within the context of an existing training program as part of a coaching intervention for the respondent or for coaching a group of employees.
Further information on the CDP is also available at ConflictDynamics.org.
