Solutions You Want…Results You Need…The First Time…Everytime!
Assessments come in all shapes, sizes, colors, flavors, etc… Three important things to remember are:
1 You have to decide up front what your expectations are when seeking results from the assessment.
2 You get out of it what your participants put into it. If participants are not clear about why they are taking it or are not in the right frame of mind when taking it, responses may not be as accurate and results will reflect it.
3 Assessments provide an entry point into deeper discussions regarding self discovery, self awareness, personal insights, greater personal clarity, and serves as a foundation for actionable areas of focus.
At DCG we strive to assist you in determining what the right tool or instrument is, then helping the participants get in the correct mind-set to take it. We use a seven step (D7) process to help get the participants results that provide greater self awareness and optimize their performance for the organization.

Thomas-Kilmann Conflict Mode Instrument (TKI)
Thomas and Kilmann’s theory asserts that every conflict has within it two independent variables—the degree to which each participant or party in the conflict is assertive and cooperative. The different degrees to which each person or party is high or low assertive and cooperative yield the five different conflict “modes.” This matrix theory is based on Robert Blake and Jane Mouton’s Managerial Grid, which rests upon the two variables: concern for production and concern for people.
