This course takes its name from the Medieval European maps that were purely schematic and only ever meant to illustrate broad differences. In much the same way, Dr Elias Porter’s Relationship Awareness Theory and SDI tool is an attempt to articulate how motivations drive the intentions that result in our behaviours. His theory was developed into a similar schematic which offers a glimpse into a world where it might be possible to understand ourselves and our colleagues with a keener insight.
By exploring our values and how they motivate us on a day when everything is going well, and how they might drive us on a different day; Mappa Mundi pilots participants through a comprehensive understanding of the Strength Deployment Inventory, and helps them to plot their particular journey through the landscape it describes.
The course can reveal the extent to which our core values often change in direction or intensity when we are in conflict, thereby clarifying for us what options might best be considered in order to achieve a desired outcome. When combined with an exploration of personal strengths and how they might be perceived by someone with a different set of values, the results can be quite startling.
