Do you have employees constantly bickering and disrupting productivity? Dealing With Conflict (DCI) is a self-assessment tool designed to measure the five conflict-handling styles effective for dealing with conflict. Your participants will quickly uncover the positive uses of each style and the most appropriate conflict style to use in any given specific business circumstance.
How It Works
The Dealing with Conflict training instrument presents five conflict styles, which help participants discover their natural style tendencies.
The Five Conflict Styles
The narrative in the assessment booklet enables participants to learn about the different advantages and disadvantages of each style. Participants explore the characteristics of each conflict style to develop greater style flexibility. They also uncover how to analyze a conflict to decide which style is best for a given situation.
Uses and Applications
Dealing with Conflict is similar in style to the popular Thomas-Kilmann Conflict Mode Instrument. Trainers appreciate the DCI's ease of use and clearly written, plain English descriptions, which make it suitable for a wide variety of training applications where conflict is an issue.
By the end of this workshop, participants will:
- Learn their dominant and secondary conflict styles
- Become more flexible in regards to conflict
- Learn to collaborate toward a solution in most situations
- Improve conflict resolution that helps the organization reduce workplace stress
