TKI – Thomas-Kilmann Conflict Mode Instrument

The TKI questionnaire identifies five distinct conflict styles and provides teams with a system for conflict management.

By helping team members understand their default approach to conflict, it empowers them to select an approach based on the situation and their skill rather than just their habit.

The good news is that it’s very easy for teams to use!

Conflict in a team is unavoidable (and expensive); some estimates say that employees can spend as much as 3 hours a week dealing with the issues it generates. The powerful TKI tool can minimise these negative issues and even change them into positive outcomes for your team.

Following this TKI workshop, conflict will become more constructive and value adding, producing more effective working relationships between colleagues AND better results.

By quickly identifying a conflict resolution style and learning how and when to use each of the styles – not just relying on the one that comes naturally to them, conflict can be re-framed and defused producing more productive outcomes, a happier and more productive working environment.

The Pre-Workshop

Following an initial 15-minute online survey, individuals receive a report on their typical uses of the five ‘conflict handling modes’:

  • Competing
  • Accommodating
  • Avoiding
  • Collaborating
  • Compromising

What does the TKI measure? 

The TKI measures preferences for five different styles of handling conflict, called conflict modes, which are described along two dimensions: assertiveness, or the extent to which a person tries to satisfy their own concerns; and cooperativeness, or the extent to which they try to satisfy the concerns of another person.

  • No prior knowledge or expertise necessary; suitable for line managers and team members as well as L&D professionals
  • Fast and accessible – simple to apply, easy to understand
  • An efficient and economic in-house solution, saving time and money
  • Immediate, actionable results that transform potentially damaging conflict to foster constructive difference
  • Increases productivity by reducing wasted time and preventing damage to working relationships
  • Avoids the costly legal repercussions of workplace conflict
  • Wide application – can be used for teams and individuals alike

Thank you for yesterday, it was lovely to meet you both, and it was a great day. Lots of positive feedback and I think we really took a lot away, especially from the MBTI. We’re currently trying to find a space to hang our artistic masterpiece!

A very entertaining experience... we had to make decisions and work together. And we also got a sense of achievement - I can’t draw and produced 2 decent superheroes. An excellent activity.

Many thanks to Neil and Ruth for leading our virtual team building exercise... Many laughs were had while scrambling to collect the twenty items...!!! The Murder Mystery was my favourite and my team winning was the icing on the cake. The Haka showed how uncoordinated we are but the laughs ...just proves what an enjoyable experience we all had.
