Leadership and Conflict within Organizations

Leadership and Conflict within Organizations

In honor of the TKI’s 40th anniversary, CPP, Inc. had the chance to sit down with the assessment’s coauthor, Dr. Ralph Kilmann, and discuss some of the most common questions and topics surrounding the Thomas-Kilmann Conflict Mode Instrument.

The Thomas-Kilmann Conflict Mode Instrument (TKI) is the world’s best-selling tool for helping people understand how different conflict-handling styles affect interpersonal and group dynamics—and for empowering them to choose the appropriate style for any situation.

The TKI assesses an individual’s typical behavior in conflict situations and describes it along two dimensions: assertiveness and cooperativeness. It provides detailed information about how that individual can effectively use five different conflict-handling modes, or styles.

In the below video, Dr. Kilmann discusses how the TKI is used in leadership settings, how leaders can unknowlingly set a cultural precedent throughout the company, and why it’s important for leaders to be aware of their conflict-handling modes.
