DR. KILMANN’S RECOMMENDATIONS

To help you choose which particular courses, assessments, and books will be most relevant to your specialized needs and/or the needs of your clients, Dr. Ralph Kilmann has prepared his recommendations especially to suit your primary or preferred occupational identity—which he summarizes in the following way:

Executives and senior managers are usually too close to their own circumstances and challenges to select the best approach for resolving complex problems and conflicts. Having an experienced coach to shed new light on old conflicts, which include career and life choices, goes a long way in helping leaders transform their most nagging conflicts and challenges into golden opportunities for personal growth and organizational success.
