THE UNIQUE BENEFITS OF TAKING BASIC TRAINING IN CONFLICT MANAGEMENT
- In an 80-minute recorded course, you'll hear Dr. Ralph Kilmann's crystal-clear voice explain the underlying dimensions of conflict management: assertiveness and cooperativeness. These dimensions define the TKI's five conflict-handling modes: competing, collaborating, compromising, avoiding, and accommodating.
- You'll then hear Dr. Kilmann explain three additional dimensions on the TKI Conflict Model: the distributive, the integrative, and the protective dimensions. These extra dimensions provide greater depth and deeper insight into a person's TKI Profile.
- Toward the end of this recorded online course, Dr. Kilmann provides his detailed—and insightful—interpretion of six very different TKI Profiles, which is one of the best ways to learn how to accurately interpret your own as well as other people's TKI results. His analysis of these six TKI Profiles also offers action recommendations on how these individuals can improve their conflict-handling behavior.
- By learning all about the TKI Conflict Model directly from the author himself, you can rest assured that you'll be using the TKI assessment accurately—and to its full potential.
- This online course comes with a 32-page downloadable manual that includes an image of every presentation slide, Dr. Kilmann's personalized notes, and reference material.
- Because this course is recorded, you can watch it anytime, anywhere, and at your own pace—on a laptop computer or a mobile device.
