The Critical Yet Overlooked Skillset
Of all the skills and behaviors essential for effective performance, the one that scares the most people into inaction and disengagement is conflict. To increase the ability for and the likelihood that our clients will take on this critical topic, OKA has developed a number of different approaches to conflict. We have put together the following videos to help you tie each of three popular and powerful models to the topic of conflict–Type, Emotional Intelligence and Thomas & Kilmann. We hope you find the data useful. This first short video sets up the series.
Type & Conflict
OKA was founded on and made its initial reputation on its expertise with Type and the Myers-Briggs, which makes a great conflict tool.
EQ & Conflict
Emotional Intelligence also gives a number of useful access points to effective conflict work.
Thomas & Kilmann–The Primary Source
One of the original approaches to conflict, remains one of the best—Thomas and Kilmann.

OKA also works with teams and leaders. OKA’s Managing Conflict Workshop often uses the Thomas and Kilmann approach, but we also hold workshops using Type and Emotional Intelligence as well.
