Thomas-Kilmann Instrument: Two Assessments per Person



    By taking two Thomas-Kilmann Instruments (TKI assessments), each with modified instructions, allows you to focus—more accurately—on the specific conflict behavior taking place inside your group or organization. Dr. Ralph H. Kilmann has used this approach for decades in his own consulting practice. 


    As described in our recorded online course, GROUP Training in Conflict Management, there are several benefits for taking TWO separate TKI assessments, each with modified instructions: (1) how you manage differences INSIDE your group and (2) how you manage differences OUTSIDE your group (across all other settings in your life).

    By taking these two modified TKI assessments, you will learn how the leader, the other members, the culture, and the reward system might be unduly influencing how conflict is being managed in your group—which has not led to satisfactory outcomes for you, the group as a whole, and other key stakeholders. But once you (and your group members) receive the two TKI Reports from those two modified TKI assessments, members will be able to discuss which conflict modes are most needed for success INSIDE their group, while they also realize which conflict modes they're already using effectively OUTSIDE their group. It will then be much easier for members to significantly improve their group's conflict-handling behavior, which includes redesigning and aligning their surrounding systems so they'll be able to use all five modes INSIDE their group—as the situation requires.



    The price for two TKIs is $90. At the bottom of this page, you can add this pair of online assessments to your shopping cart. Once you complete your purchase, you have 90 days to take both TKI assessments and download your two personalized TKI reports: one for inside your group and the other for outside your group.



    For 1 to 24 persons, each pair of TKIs is $90.
    For 25 to 49 persons, each pair of TKIs is $85. 
    For 50 to 249 persons, each pair of TKIs is $80. 
    For 250 to 499 persons, each pair of TKIs is $75. 
    For 500 or more, each pair of TKIs is $70.

    At the bottom of this page, you can enter the desired quantity of pairs of TKIs to your shopping cart. If you enter 25 or more pairs of TKIs, the total charge will be based on the relevant quantity discount. As soon as two TKIs are assigned to each person on your spreadsheet (see below), he or she has 90 days to take both TKI assessments and download both TKI Reports. 

    Here are the TKI instructions for INSIDE/OUTSIDE. The words that can be changed have been set in bold.

    INSIDE your group, how do you usually respond when you find your wishes differing from those of another group member? For each of the 30 pairs of statements below, select the letter ("A" or "B") that best characterizes your behavior in your group.

    OUTSIDE your group (across all other settings in your life), how do you usually respond when you find your wishes differing from those of another person? For each of the 30 pairs of statements below, select the letter ("A" or "B") that best characterizes your typical behavior in these other settings.

    Please let us know if you would like to change the focus of these instructions to: INSIDE/OUTSIDE your organization, your department; your school, the workplace... or whatever suits you. If you prefer that your participants respond to their TKIs with a different focus for INSIDE/OUTSIDE, we will place YOUR instructions in the emails that we send to your participants. But other than the INSIDE/OUTSIDE focus, we do not change any other aspect of the TKI instructions, since the rest of those instructions are essential for maintaining the validity of the TKI assessment process.

    After you complete your checkout, please download The Spreadsheet for Creating Group Accounts and follow the instructions. If you are buying a pair of TKIs for another person, fill out the spreadsheet for just that one person. From the date of purchase, a TKI assessment can be assigned to one or more persons (via sending us a completed spreadsheet) for a period of one year.

    If you'll be conducting an educational program for several members and you want to make use of their two TKI results before that meeting, ask them to send you a copy of their two personalized reports as soon as they have downloaded them.

    Extra Services for Group Accounts: When all the participants in your group have completed their two TKI assessments, if you request it, we can send you a zip file that contains their TKI Reports. However, if you wish to have these zip files sent to you more frequently, we charge extra for this special service. In addition, we are willing to provide you with an update on the status of your account just prior to a workshop or other educational program (regarding who has and who hasn't completed the two TKI assessments). But if you wish to receive more frequent updates, we also charge extra for such a time-consuming service. Moreover, if you need help in correctly completing additional KD_Spreadsheets for your group account (let alone completing your initial KD_Spreadsheet), we are willing to provide that service, but that extra work is not covered in the group purchase price of two TKI assessments per person. Please Contact Us for these and other extra services, which you can then purchase on our Special Payments Page.



    GROUP Training in Conflict Management


    If you will be purchasing a pair of TKIs for each member in a group, consider taking our three-hour GROUP Training in Conflict Management, which will help you develop and interpret "Group TKI Profiles." This course will enable consultants, trainers, and coaches to improve conflict-handling behavior in the workplace far beyond what is possible from simply averaging "Individual TKI Profiles." In addition, once you create an account on our website, click on "My Free Gifts" in your username panel and you'll have access to Dr. Kilmann's 25-minute recorded webinar: "Using the TKI to Its Full Potential."




    Before you can purchase two TKI assessments per person, you must first create a username account—or log in to your existing account. Once you have purchased two TKIs for yourself, remain logged into your account and click on My Two TKIs on your username panel at the top left of our website. A new page will open that will provide the two sets of instructions for taking your two TKI assessments. 

    If you have purchased a pair of TKIs for one or more other group members, please send us a completed KD_Spreadsheet, so we can arrange for your client(s) to take two TKIs through their own private account on our publisher's website.
