LeadU SK+ L&LI Microcasts:
A daily 1+ minute “conscious” read.

Each of the assessment models in the SK+ Portfolio Identifies aspects of a PSA — when successfully serving personality dynamics — becomes a PSS used until it obsoletes itself for a PSS that has greater fit… or combined with another to fill in gaps in solving more complex problems.

TKI MODE (Conflict) = Management of Differences Exercise

One of the advantages of this classification scheme is that the five specific modes reflect independent dimensions of interpersonal conflict behavior.

As interpreted by Thomas (1976), the scheme is based upon the two separate dimensions of cooperation (attempting to satisfy the other person’s concerns) and assertiveness (attempting to satisfy one’s own concerns):

  • competing is assertive and uncooperative,
  • collaborating is assertive and cooperative,
  • avoiding is unassertive and uncooperative,
  • accommodating is unassertive and cooperative, and
  • compromising is intermediate in both cooperativeness and assertiveness.
For me, the TKI Results give you a trusted PSA, in all likelihood durable and important as a centerpiece PSS.

The stated goal is to recognize conflict situations and to match up with the MODE which is most likely to determine the CAPTSEE outcome.

It’s not easy.

And once you know your proclivities, reaching out for help produces more resilience.

Which is why self-knowledge “tends” to produce conditions where it — at least — appears like we are more self-aware, and Inquiry always is helpful.

Next, it’s a very underrated PSA called Learning Styles.
