Just like “death and taxes,” conflict is inevitable! Why? Because no two individuals have exactly the same needs and concerns, conflict is a natural part of our interactions with others—whether in our personal life or in our organizational life.
The ONLINE Thomas-Kilmann Conflict Mode Instrument (TKI) will take you about 15 minutes to respond to all 30 items on the assessment—using a computer, laptop, or mobile device. Right afterwards, you can download your personalized TKI Report.

Your personalized TKI results will reveal which of the five conflict modes you might be using too much or too little… or just right. With such enhanced self-awareness about your conflict-handling behavior, you’ll be able to easily recognize the most appropriate uses for each of the five conflict-handling modes depending on the key attributes of the situation, which will significantly enhance your skills for resolving all kinds of conflicts and problems—whether at work or at home.
Just so you know… the TKI has been the world-wide leader in conflict resolution assessment for more than forty years. Since 1974, more than 10 million copies of the TKI have been sold.
Taking the TKI assessment in different languages: If you wish to take an online TKI from Kilmann Diagnostics in Latin American Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Chinese (Traditional or Simplified), Japanese, or Swedish, you have two options: (1) taking your TKI in the chosen language, yet your TKI Report is provided in U.S. English or (2) taking your TKI in the chosen language and then downloading your TKI Report in that same translation. You can also purchase a TKI paper booklet or self-scorable TKI ebook from The Myers-Briggs Company in more than ten different languages. To learn more, visit: Translations for the TKI Assessment.
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.

ALSO NOTE: If you are interested in significantly improving the conflict-handling behavior of a group of 2 to 15 or so members, consider purchasing the TKI Team Report, which has been especially created just for that purpose. After each team member has completed their TKI assessment (either with the standard or with modified TKI instructions), each member will receive a personalized report that recommends exactly how the team as a whole can resolve its most challenging conflicts and thus improve its performance and satisfaction.
