An Application of the Thomas-Kilmann Conflict Mode Instrument
Looking for a simple but powerful activity to conduct or summarize your conflict-handling workshop?
Use this tried and true activity to have participants apply their learning to real-life situations. By asking participants to describe in writing two recent conflict situations, they can share insights with the other participants into how they might approach the same situation differently and how their style was appropriate or inappropriate. Your role as facilitator is to have an open, non-threatening discussion and to reinforce key learnings from the workshop. Stand back and watch the "aha” moments.
Objective: To enable participants to share real-life situations and discuss what they have learned in the TKI conflict-handling workshop being conducted.
Time Frame: Flexible (average 30 minutes)
Materials Included: Activity Instructions
Additional Materials Required: Blank or lined notebook paper for participants
