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:

Being better at managing conflict has become the Number 1 objective for training programs in all kinds of organizations. Since conflict creates change and since change begets more conflict, employees must significantly improve their skills for managing both conflict and change on the job. By helping members learn how to address their most challenging problems and conflicts, trainers and facilitators will add extra value to their clients.

2 TKIs L

Two TKI Assessments
Per Person

By taking one TKI specifically for INSIDE your group and another TKI for OUTSIDE your group, you’ll discover how your leader, the culture, and the reward system might be having undue influence on how conflict is being managed in your group or team.

This instrument assesses a person’s preferences for collecting information and making decisions, as based on the personality dimensions that were originally developed by C. G. Jung: ST, NT, SF, and NF types or styles for approaching problems and conflicts.

Time-Gap L
