Effective Conflict Resolution through TKI
In many organizations today, the focus is on results: finding better solutions faster. To optimize performance, we must be able to effectively resolve issues, settle differences and implement solutions on every level. The Thomas-Kilman Conflict Mode Instrument (TKI) helps people discover how the ways they handle conflict - their conflict styles - affect performance.
We all use a range of conflict styles based on our skills and on the demands of the situation at hand. By understand and expanding these styles, we can improve the way we accomplish goals individually and within work groups.
In this workshop, you'll learn:
- Five conflict-handling modes, along with how and when each mode is most appropriate
- Gain insight into how overusing or underusing any one mode can create unwanted situations
- Gain understanding about your key conflict-handling modes
- Work in large and small groups to gain insight into how conflict modes can help or hinder team communication and conflict management
Each participation will receive materials to help ensure a high quality presentation as well as information that can be used with your business.
