The Thomas Kilmann Conflict Mode Instrument (TKI) has been the worldwide leader in assessing conflict-handling behavior for almost forty years. Dr. Ralph Kilmann is the co-author of the TKI.  More than 7,000,000 copies of the TKI have been purchased since 1974. When you take the TKI, therefore, you can be confident that you’re using an assessment tool that has withstood the rugged test of time.

The Thomas-Kilmann Conflict Mode Instrument (TKI) is a conflict style inventory, which is a tool developed to measure an individual’s response to conflict situations. This self-report assessment allows you to discover whether you might be overusing (a high score) or underusing (a low score) one or more of these five conflict-handling modes: competing, collaborating, compromising, avoiding, and accommodating.

To determine which of your TKI mode scores are high or low, your results are compared to a.U.S. research sample of 8,000 men and women who were drawn from a pool of 59,000 TKI respondents in order to mirror the demographic distribution of the U.S. population. A subsequent cross-cultural research sample of 6,000 men and women from 16 different countries revealed only minor variations from the U.S. norms. These rather surprising results demonstrate that the TKI is measuring an aspect of conflict-handling behavior that is fairly consistent across different countries and cultures.
