Conflict handling style accomodating and compromising
When we say “Conflict”, the first word comes to our mind is Fight, Avoid, Anger, Lose, Pain, Control, War, Hate, Impasse, Loss, Destruction, Bad, Fear, Wrong doing, Mistake etc., As you can see, conflicts is almost universally perceived as a negative occurrence. Often, a conflict presents opportunities for improvement.
As I shared in my last blog post that a conflict is a situation when the interests, needs, goals or values of involved parties interfere with one another. Therefore, it is important to understand (and apply) various conflict resolution techniques.
The goal of conflict management is to manage yourself and others so as to bring about the best possible resolution of a conflict situation in terms of the issue at hand, the relationship.
Besides its native language, the TKI is also available in Spanish, French, Portuguese, Danish, Dutch, Swedish, Japanese, and Chinese (traditional and simplified).
The TKI is designed to measure a person's behavior in conflict situations.
Techniques should be evaluated and applied based on the own needs vs others needs • Collaborating – I win, you win • Compromising – Win some, lose some (You bend, I bend) • Accommodating – I lose, you win • Competing – I win, you lose • Avoiding – No winners, No losers In this post I am going to discuss the pros and cons of these techniques.
• Leads to solving the actual problem • Leads to a win-win outcome • Reinforces mutual trust and respect • Builds a foundation for effective collaboration in the future • Shared responsibility of the outcome • You earn the reputation of a good negotiator • Collaborating may not be practical when timing is crucial and a quick solution or fast response is required • Requires a commitment from all parties to look for a mutually acceptable solution • The process takes lots of time and energy • Some may take advantage of other people’s trust and openness • Faster issue resolution.
