People make the difference!

The root argument of SDI is that organisations are not successful, it is the people who work within them that are successful - they drive it forward, slow it down or even put it into reverse!The values of an organisation can be measured by the expertise of its staff and their ability to work together. The bottom line will reflect the skills of staff and the quality of their relationship.

Soft skills of Fundamental skills?

Having a relationship with people is not optional. Whatever your job, whether you produce, sell or service, you will do this in the context of other people - people are your working environment. Your skills in that environment impacts directly on the success you enjoy. Having staff skilled in interpersonal relationships is not a soft option, it is fundamental to the business and impacts directly on productivity, morale and the bottom line!
