GTCM.cover_In a 3-hour recorded course, you’ll hear Dr. Ralph Kilmann’s crystal-clear voice explain how to use the TKI assessment for improving how conflict is managed in any group setting (including work groups, committees, project teams, and virtual teams). To achieve this purpose, Dr. Kilmann recommends that group members purchase two TKI assessments (an option, not a requirement) and then complete each TKI with modified instructions for (1) INSIDE their group and (2) OUTSIDE their group.The results from these two assessments can then be sorted into HIGH and LOW scores that show how conflict modes are being used both INSIDE and OUTSIDE a group. Dr. Kilmann not only shows how to develop these ‘four-fold’ Group TKI Profiles, but also provides guidelines and examples for properly interpreting these diagnostic-rich diagrams: to pinpoint exactly how a group can significantly improve its conflict-handling behavior for achieving greater success and satisfaction. Near the end of the course, Dr. Kilmann presents the Conflict Management Matrix, which provides action recommendations with various combinations of (a) transforming systems, (b) developing people, and (3) transferring the conflict management wisdom from one group setting to another.This online course comes with a 54-page downloadable manual that includes an image of every presentation slide, Dr. Kilmann’s personalized notes, and reference material.Because this course is recorded, you can watch it anytime, anywhere, and at your own pace..
