Be Better at Managing Conflict Under Stress



Ralph H. Kilmann, co-author of the TKI
Sarita Bhakuni, Licensed Psychologist


In May 2012, I participated in a 1-hour webinar for CPP, Inc. (now named The Myers-Briggs Company) along with my colleague, Sarita Bhakuni, on the intriguing question of how stress affects conflict management—and what to do about it. I presented the TKI aspects of this topic, while Sarita explored the personality, or MBTI, aspects. The importance of practicing some form of meditation and taking steps to enhance your self-aware consciousness about stress and conflict can then be explored in greater detail and depth in my six-hour, recorded, online course: Expanding Consciousness in People and Organizations.

Expanding Consciousness in Organizations

A Synopsis of Our Recorded Online Course: Expanding Consciousness in People and Organizations

Our 6-hour Consciousness Course (including a 112-page Course Manual) provides the essential groundwork for the further evolution of human consciousness. In the process of exploring how members can expand their mind/body/spirit consciousness and then bring that greater wisdom and creativity into their organization, this course necessarily includes an overview of the eight tracks of quantum transformation—which are subsequently examined in detail in our remaining online courses. In addition, this course also provides an overview of the Thomas-Kilmann Conflict Model, since it’s necessary for members to first resolve their four foundational—inner—conflicts, before their organization can fully benefit from their expanded consciousness. But it’s not necessary for members to take the TKI assessment until later in the course, unless they would like to know their specific TKI results before they learn about the TKI Conflict Model in general.
