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:

Given the escalation of regional, national, and international conflicts (including the prospect of nuclear war), it has never been more important for dedicated peacebuilders to be aware of all their options for approaching high-stakes conflict situations—so they can de-escalate the crisis and then take the steps to find workable compromises, if not collaborative solutions, so a lasting peace and social/economic stability can be achieved.
