I discovered through this assignment there are many different ways to dealing with conflict. Some of these ways include; collaborating, competing, avoiding, accommodating, and compromising. Everyone has a style which, suites them the best based on their characteristics, emotions, strong suites, how they like to deal with conflict, and past experience when dealing with problems in their life. I have also came to realize there are both positives and negatives to each conflict management style. Collaborating is working together with both sides to reach a positive outcome for both parties. Competing is striving to get what you want in the discussion and ignoring the feelings or voices of others. Avoiding means to pretend like nothing is wrong …show more content…
I know this because when I deal with problems in my life, I like to the fact of knowing both sides are satisfied with the result. I feel the best way in solving a conflict is teamwork even when at the moment the other person may be upset with. For example whenever I get into an argument with my fiancé, I always try to think about her point of view, and where she is coming from in the conflict. I find when we work together to solve a problem, it is solved a lot faster and with both of us happy with what we have to come to agree with. I also know accommodation is my back up because even when I am collaborating with others, I always try not to hurt the other person’s feelings when dealing with any type of conflict.

It has made me realize working together and making everyone feel welcome in the group is the best way to handle conflict. Dealing with conflict as a team creates lots of ideas to make a conflict easier to be solved. Being able to listen to others, makes them feel like they want you on their side when a conflict arise because you are a team player. Even though collaborating take lots of time and energy, it will always be better than leaving the problem
