 Conflict Styles 

In life, love and work, there are times when conflict is inevitable; because "conflict" is simply a matter of differences - a difference of opinion, different beliefs, a different way of looking at things. And when dealing with people, those differences are bound to show up. What's important is how we deal with these conflicts when they do arise. Understanding what type of approach to use in a conflict situation is the first step in resolving our differences.


Each of us has our preferred style of dealing with conflict. Our conflict management style is not something we've intentionally adopted but rather learned though our upbringing, our personality, our life experiences. When faced with conflict, most of us react instinctively. Understanding the different styles of dealing with conflict allows us to recognize that we have a choice in how we respond. We can choose a more appropriate approach than our reactive response, allowing us to get the results we want.  Each conflict style has its strengths and weaknesses. Determine your preferred style and learn how it can assist or challenge you when you experience conflict.
