THE UNIQUE BENEFITS OF TAKING ADVANCED TRAINING IN CONFLICT MANAGEMENT
- In an 8-hour recorded course, you'll hear Dr. Ralph Kilmann's crystal-clear voice explain the TKI assessment in much greater detail—and depth—than was possible with our 80-minute BASIC Training course.
- In ADVANCED Training, Dr. Kilmann thoroughly examines how certain enduring psychological traits predispose people to use different modes for resolving conflict. Once you become aware of the connection between your traits and your modes, however, you’ll find it easier to use each conflict-handling mode as needed.
- You’ll then learn the ten key principles of group process (planning vs. doing, testing assumptions, decomposing the task, process vs. content, conflict-handling modes, and more), which enhance what is covered in the GROUP Training course and is later expanded in the Team Management Course.
- You’ll next learn the five steps—and errors—of problem management (sensing problems, defining problems, deriving solutions, implementing solutions, and evaluating outcomes), which are the ultimate source of all conflicts in organizations.
- The foregoing principles and practices are then combined into the Problem Management Organization, or PMO for short, which enables groups and organizations to resolve their most complex problems and conflicts—efficiently and effectively.
- This online course comes with a 134-page downloadable manual that includes an image of every presentation slide, Dr. Kilmann's personalized notes, reference material, a busines case study, and the Process Observer Form.
- Because this course is recorded, you can watch it anytime, anywhere, and at your own pace—on a laptop computer or a mobile device.
