The Thomas-Kilmann Conflict Mode Instrument Assessment and Report

Discover your conflict management style with the Thomas-Kilmann Conflict Mode Instrument. This TKI Assessment measures your tendency across five conflict-handling modes: competing, collaborating, compromising, avoiding, and accommodating. Each mode offers distinct advantages:

  • Competing: Ideal for urgent decisions where stakes are high.
  • Collaborating: Best for integrating multiple viewpoints into a cohesive solution.
  • Compromising: Effective when the goal is to find an expedient, mutually acceptable solution.
  • Avoiding: Useful in situations where the conflict is trivial or when more important issues are pressing.
  • Accommodating: Beneficial when maintaining harmony is more important than winning.

These insights enable you to tailor your approach to different conflict situations, enhancing both personal and professional interactions.
