Accommodating style of conflict

Rated 3.89/5 based on 997 customer reviews

Overuse of this style can be exhibited through constant tension or anger and occasional outbursts of violent temper.

All five of these styles are effective for resolving conflict some of the time and inappropriate at other times.

The avoidance strategy involves staying away from conflict instead of addressing the issue.

Avoidance may manifest as withdrawing or backing down when confronted, changing the subject or sidestepping the issue, pretending like something isn't bothering you or that there isn't really a problem, putting off dealing with things, or physically removing yourself from the situation by walking away or maybe even quitting your job.

Each of us has characteristics inherent in our personality style that reflect our unique wants, needs, and values.

Similarly, we all have a characteristic style or manner in which we deal with conflict.
