IDI has three unique characteristics that are crucial for feedback to have a positive effect on our behavior.
Asking others for feedback generates respect. Your respondents invest in the process by describing how they experience you, which creates a "contract" between you and them. You become, so to speak, "obliged" to do something with the feedback you receive and this greatly increases the chances that you will actually do it.
IDI does not tell you who you "are". Your IDI profile is a snapshot of how people experience you in a given context. Because the feedback is specific and applies to a particular context, it becomes easier to transform the feedback into insights and concrete actions that you perceive as important.
Whether you’re an independent business consultant or an organization administrator, you can become a licensed and certified facilitator for IDI.
A multi-rater organizational assessment can grow your individual, team, and organizational strengths to their maximum potential.

Taking the IDI has been eye opening—the description of my profile was spot on. I believe it is critical to know your own communication and working styles and it is as important to understand each member of your team's styles. We will now implement this valuable tool throughout our company.
