Use the TKI to elevate performance. The TKI identifies a person’s preferred conflict-handling mode, or style, and provides detailed information about how he or she can effectively use all five modes—competing, collaborating, compromising, avoiding, and accommodating. Using the TKI, individuals can learn to move beyond conflict and focus on achieving organizational goals and business objectives. Organizations can apply the TKI to such challenges as change management, team building, leadership development, stress management, negotiation, and communication. The TKI has been used successfully by businesses, educators, and organizational development professionals for over 30 years. It can be used as a stand-alone tool or as part of a comprehensive training program. Use it in your organization as the foundation for developing a common language that helps people think effectively and communicate clearly about conflict and how to manage it.
