Conflict Management Style
Must be at least 8 sentences long. 5 basic conflict management styles: Accommodating, Avoiding, Negotiating, Forcing, and Collaborating. The text makes it seem obvious that the collaborating conflict style is “best”, but it is not always possible to find a win-win solution to every conflict (here is a hint though: win-win is often possible when two or more parties work together over an extended amount of time, but may not be possible in every isolated instant or decision). For this discussion, think of a time when you have encountered a conflict. What conflict management styles were used in the interactions? What approach did you take? Did the conflict get resolved to your satisfaction? What could have gone differently that may have changed the outcome (either on your end, or on their end)?
