TKI® Team Report

    Kenneth W. Thomas, Gail Fann Thomas, Ralph H. Kilmann

    Help teams manage conflict and improve performance.

Conflict within a team or group is inevitable. But this isn't necessarily a bad thing. When managed well, conflict can be the key to high performance, better decision-making, and increased productivity.

Based on the world-renowned Thomas-Kilmann Conflict Mode Instrument (TKI® assessment), the TKI Team Report helps teams understand how five conflict-handling modes—competing, collaborating, compromising, avoiding, and accommodating—affect interpersonal and group dynamics, and how to select the most appropriate approach for a given situation.

The 21-page report reveals a team’s TKI profile, shedding light on the team’s typical approach to conflict and identifying signs of potential overuse or underuse of any of the five conflict modes. The team’s profile is then used to explore potential interpersonal and decision-making challenges and suggest remedies to help the team overcome each one

Team members also receive their individual TKI profiles. This allows each team member to learn how their results compare to those of the team, how similarities and differences may relate to personal challenges, and what to do to improve their conflict-handling behavior on that team.

The TKI Team Report is ideal for a wide range of applications, including team-based conflict management, general team building and development, new team formation or onboarding, and team leader development.


Hassle-free team profiles
Say goodbye to trying to piece together a team’s TKI results based on individual profiles. The TKI Team Report offers an easy way to generate a TKI profile for any team. Team members simply complete the assessment and the team’s profile is generated automatically.

Team and individual challenges and remedies
The team’s TKI profile reveals how team members might be overusing or underusing any of the five conflict-handling modes. For the team’s highest- and lowest-scoring modes, the report identifies six potential challenges and provides actionable remedies grounded in evidence-based principles to help the team improve interpersonal relations and group decision-making. For individual development, the report also identifies unique challenges and remedies for each team member based on their own highest- and lowest-scoring modes.

Comes with expert guidance
The free TKI Team Report Facilitator’s Guide includes detailed information about the report and step-by-step instructions to help you run a hands-on team development workshop. It also includes ready-to-use facilitation materials, such as a team conflict diagnostic worksheet and a SMART goal template for action planning.

Backed by research
The report is powered by the TKI assessment, the world’s leading psychometric tool for conflict—which is supported by decades of research and real-world use. Unlike other conflict tools, the TKI assessment is designed to overcome social desirability bias—people’s tendencies to present themselves in an overly positive way—providing results that you and your clients can trust.

Note: The TKI® Team Report is designed for teams of two or more people. One report needs to be ordered per team member. If you purchased a TKI Team Report and want an updated report after someone joins or leaves the team, you will need to purchase a new report for each member of the modified team. Also, the TKI Team Report is separate from the TKI® Profile and Interpretive Report. The purchase of the TKI Profile and Interpretive Report is not required to generate the TKI Team Report.
