If you want to read the most up-to-date and comprehensive information about the TKI tool in one single document, consider purchasing Dr. Kilmann’s first TKI Book (published in 2023): Mastering the Thomas-Kilmann Conflict-Mode Instrument: Celebrating More Than 50 Years of Resolving All Kinds of Conflicts.
Our 3-hour GROUP Training (including a 56-page Course Manual) provides consultants, trainers, and coaches with the knowledge to use the TKI for improving how conflict is managed in any group setting. This course recommends that group members take two TKI assessments with modified instructions: (1) INSIDE your group, how do you usually respond when you find your wishes differing from those of another group member? (2) OUTSIDE your group (across all other settings in your life), how do you usually respond…?
The results from having taken two TKIs, each with modified instructions, can then be sorted into HIGH and LOW scores that show how conflict modes are being used both INSIDE and OUTSIDE a group. This course provides guidelines (and examples) for properly interpreting these Group TKI Profiles: to pinpoint how a group or team can significantly improve its conflict-handling behavior for achieving greater success and satisfaction.
Watch our FREE, very informative, Videos About the Thomas-Kilmann Instrument and Your Conflict Resolution Skills. You can also read many Full-Length TKI Articles and TKI Blogs. Lastly, you’ll learn a lot from Dr. Kilmann’s question-and-answer exchanges: FAQs About the TKI Assessment.
CAUTION: To gain the most from GROUP Training in Conflict Management, it would be best if you have previously taken our BASIC Training course or our ADVANCED Training course (or, based on relevant experience, you’re already very familiar with interpreting INDIVIDUAL TKI Profiles), so you have the necessary background to develop and then interpret the more complex GROUP TKI Profiles.
NOTE: The GROUP Training course does NOT include your pair of TKIs. Instead, if you wish to take the TKI twice, just before or during the course, you’ll have to Purchase a Pair of TKIs separately. This arrangement allows us to keep the price of the course $100 below what it would be if we bundled two TKIs with the course. Many people who purchase this course have previously taken the TKI and, as such, don’t want to take it again (or pay for it again). But we do include two TKI assessments with our two course collections: The TKI Package and The Complete Program.

LEARN HOW TO ACCURATELY USE THE TKI IN GROUP SETTINGS: In a 3-hour recorded course, you'll hear Dr. Ralph Kilmann's crystal-clear voice explain how to use the TKI assessment for improving how conflict is managed in any group setting (including work groups, committees, project teams, and virtual teams).
LEARN WHY EACH GROUP MEMBER SHOULD TAKE TWO MODIFIED TKI ASSESSMENTS: To understand why conflict is being managed a certain way in a particular group, Dr. Kilmann recommends that group members purchase two TKI assessments (an option, not a requirement) and then complete each TKI with modified instructions for (1) INSIDE your group and (2) OUTSIDE your group.
LEARN HOW TO DEVELOP GROUP TKI PROFILES: The results from these two assessments can then be sorted into HIGH and LOW scores that show how conflict modes are being used both INSIDE and OUTSIDE a group.
LEARN HOW TO INTERPRET GROUP TKI PROFILES: Dr. Kilmann not only shows you how to develop these “four-fold” Group TKI Profiles, but also provides you with guidelines—and examples—for properly interpreting these diagnostic-rich diagrams: to pinpoint exactly how a group can significantly improve its conflict-handling behavior for achieving greater success and satisfaction.
LEARN HOW TO USE THE CONFLICT MANAGEMENT MATRIX: Near the end of the course, Dr. Kilmann presents the Conflict Management Matrix, which provides action recommendations with various combinations of (a) transforming systems, (b) developing people, and (3) transferring the conflict management wisdom from one group setting to another.
