LEARN DIRECTLY FROM THE CO-CREATOR OF THE RENOWNED TKI ASSESSMENT TOOL: Dr. Ralph Kilmann is the co-author of the Thomas-Kilmann Instrument (TKI), which is the world's leading assessment of conflict-handling behavior. To date, more than 8,000,000 copies of the TKI have been sold. Dr. Kilmann has been using the TKI since the time it was conceived in the early 1970s, while he was still completing his Ph.D. degree in the behavioral sciences at UCLA. All of our three online courses on conflict management, therefore, enable you to learn—directly from the author himself—how to use the TKI assessment for dramatically improving how individuals, groups, and organizations manage their conflicts.
LEARN DIRECTLY FROM THE CO-CREATOR OF SCORES OF BOOKS, ARTICLES, AND ASSESSMENT TOOLS: Dr. Kilmann has also authored more than 20 books, 100 articles, and 10 assessment tools for change management. This extensive knowledge—which was developed during his 30 years of research, teaching, and consulting as a chaired professor at the University of Pittsburgh—is utilized throughout our online courses. To ensure that all his knowledge would be perfectly translated into our series of courses on conflict, change, consciousness, and transformation, Dr. Kilmann personally created all the slide presentations and course materials—which was made possible by his undergraduate major in graphic arts at Carnegie Mellon University.
EXPERIENCE A CLOSE-UP VIDEO PRESENTATION ACCOMPANIED BY A CRYSTAL-CLEAR AUDIO RECORDING: On the video of each presentation slide, you’ll see Dr. Kilmann’s very visible pointer gracefully moving from one bulleted item to the next (or from one section of a diagram to another), perfectly in sync with his studio-recorded verbal presentation. As a result, you’ll have a front-row seat for every video presentation, along with a crystal-clear recording for the audio, in every one of our online courses. If you have a high-resolution computer, laptop, tablet, or smartphone, you’ll see every pixel and hear every word during each video presentation.
