Thomas Kilmann Conflict Mode Instrument
Manage conflicts better and enhance teamwork by knowing and understanding better your leadership and conflict management style.
What is the TKI Questionnaire?
The TKI is a self-knowledge tool in the form of a questionnaire that aims to help you understand, evaluate and improve your behavior in the face of conflict and also to understand and manage them more effectively within your team.
It is based on the Robert Blake and Jane Mouton’s managerial grid model. This model identifies 5 situational leadership styles that combine different degrees of concern for task accomplishment and people. The TKI adapts these 5 leadership styles to 5 conflict management styles.

In the second part of the session, you’ll see your score for each of the styles exploring each and comparing them to the predictions we made.
