About the TKI Assessment

Kilmann Diagnostics is dedicated to resolving conflict throughout the world, so we naturally include the renowned Thomas-Kilmann Instrument (TKI) in every one of our recorded online courses. 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 TKI is an online assessment that will take you 15 to 20 minutes to complete and download your personalized TKI Report—which will then help you discover the most appropriate uses for each conflict-handling mode in different situations. Be prepared to experience many eureka (aha) moments!

The TKI has been the leader in conflict resolution assessment for more than forty years. To date, more than 8,000,000 copies of the TKI have been published since 1974.

BENEFITS OF TAKING THE TKI ASSESSMENT

THE MOST KNOWLEDGEABLE EXPERT AT YOUR DISPOSAL: Dr. Ralph Kilmann is the co-author of the TKI: If you have any questions about how to administer the assessment or interpret your results, you won't be able to find another person who has more TKI knowledge and experience.

LEARN ALL ABOUT YOUR CONFLICT BEHAVIOR: The TKI is a self-report assessment that allows you to discover whether you might be overusing (a high score) or underusing (a low score) one or more of these five conflict-handling modes: competing, collaborating, compromising, avoiding, and accommodating.

COMPARE YOUR RESULTS TO THOUSANDS OF OTHERS: To determine which of your TKI mode scores are high or low, your results are compared to a. U.S. research sample of 8,000 men and women who were drawn from a pool of 59,000 TKI respondents in order to mirror the demographic distribution of the U.S. population. A subsequent cross-cultural research sample of 6,000 men and women from 16 different countries revealed only minor variations from the U.S. norms. These rather surprising results demonstrate that the TKI is measuring an aspect of conflict-handling behavior that is fairly consistent across different countries and cultures.

THE TKI IS AMAZINGLY ACCURATE: One reason that TKI results have such cross-cultural consistency is because the assessment was purposely designed to minimize the “social desirability response bias” (which is the natural tendency for people in all societies to respond to test items in order to look good to themselves or to others). Consequently, TKI results provide an accurate picture—across the globe—of how people actually behave in conflict situations.

WHO SHOULD TAKE THE TKI?

Learning how to manage conflict more effectively is a vital skill for every human service professional who works with individuals, couples, groups, organizations, and/or nations. The TKI assessment, therefore, is relevant to all these OCCUPATIONAL IDENTITIES:

THE SPREADSHEET FOR A QUANTITY TKI PURCHASE

After you’ve made your quantity purchase, be sure to download the KD_Spreadsheet for Creating Group Accounts and carefully follow the instructions.

For example, if you are buying the TKI for one other person, fill out the spreadsheet for just that one person. If you’ll be taking the TKI along with other persons in your group, please make sure to also include YOUR information on the completed KD_Spreadsheet.

When we import your completed spreadsheet into our website, the one or more persons who are listed have 90 days to take the TKI assessment.

If you’ll be conducting a coaching session, workshop, or other type of educational program for several persons (or someone else) and you want to make use of their TKI results before that event, ask them to send you a copy of their personalized TKI Report as soon as they have downloaded it (but you can also request us to send you a Zip File of all their TKI Reports, as noted below).

 

WHAT’S INCLUDED IN YOUR QUANTITY TKI PURCHASE?

When you send your carefully completed KD_Spreadsheet to groups@kilmanndiagnostics.com, also let us know your preferences for the following services, all of which are included in the price of a Quantity TKI Purchase:

  1. Let us know if you want your 1 or more participants to be able to Download Their TKI Report as soon as they complete the assessment or… if you want us to deactivate this option for your group account so only you (or a designated facilitator) can present their TKI Reports directly to them during a coaching session, workshop, or other type of educational program;
  2. Let us know when (date, time, and time zone) you want us to Import Your Spreadsheet and thus initiate the TKI process for your group members;
  3. Let us know if and when (date, time, and time zone) you want us to email a Reminder to Take the TKI to all those persons in your group account who have not yet completed their TKI assessment;
  4. Let us know if and when (date, time, and time zone) you want us to email you a Status Report that lists all those persons in your group account who have—or have not—completed their TKI assessment;
  5. Let us know if and when (date, time, and time zone) you want us to email you a Zip File that includes all the personalized TKI Reports of the participants in your group account who have already completed their TKI assessment.

Please keep this important policy in mind: If you require more than 1 Reminder, 1 Status Report, or 1 Zip File for each Quantity TKI Group Purchase, we charge extra for such time-consuming services (since your group purchase only includes 1 of each of those items). Please Contact Us for these and other extra services, which you can then purchase on our Special Payments Page.
