Conflict Management Styles - The TKI Model
The context can help determine the right strategy to approach, manage and resolve the conflict. However, across situations, you may consider the style of conflict management, such as the styles outlined by the Thomas-Kilmann Instrument. These styles are “Competing (assertive, uncooperative), Avoiding (unassertive, uncooperative), Accommodating (unassertive, cooperative), Collaborating (assertive, cooperative), and Compromising (intermediate assertiveness and cooperativeness)” (Wikipedia).
Conflict Management Style - Avoidance
Conflict Management Style - Accommodating
Conflict Management Style - Competing
Being overly competitive has its risks as well. It could earn you or your organization a reputation for being uncooperative or petty. Insisting on a competitive stance can also lead to Pyrrhic victories, where the cost of “winning” is so great that no real benefit is obtained for anyone.
Conflict Management Style - Compromising
Conflict Management Style - Collaboration
