MOBILE CONFLICT MODELSYou’ll experience the benefits of your new approach to resolving conflict back in the workplace and amongst your colleagues. So how will you recall your learning resolution skills when you need it most? Thankfully, we’ve an app for that. Your essential conflict resolution models are accessible from your mobile in handy 60-seconds reminders. Delivered in an animated style with professional voice-overs you’re only ever be a mobile or ipad away from ‘bite-sized’ snapshots of your conflict resolution skills.
There are five widely accepted styles of resolving conflicts. These were originally developed by Kenneth Thomas and Ralph Kilmann in the 1970’s. We have even designed our conflict resolution process so that it can be used in conjunction with these styles.
Although we promote the collaborative style throughout this workshop, there are instances where it is not appropriate (for example, it may be too time-consuming if the issue is relatively insignificant). Understanding all five styles and knowing when to use them is an important part of successful conflict resolution.
This is the approach that we will use during this workshop. With this approach, the parties in conflict work together to develop a win-win solution. This approach promotes assertiveness (rather than aggressiveness or passiveness).
This style is appropriate when:
- The situation is not urgent
- An important decision needs to be made
- The conflict involves a large number of people, or people across different teams
- Previous conflict resolution attempts have failed
This style is not appropriate when:
- A decision needs to be made urgently
- The matter is trivial to all involved
With a competitive approach, the person in conflict takes a firm stand. They compete with the other party for power, and they typically win (unless they’re up against someone else who is competing!) This style is often seen as aggressive, and can often cause the other people in the conflict to feel injured or stepped on. This style is appropriate when:
- A decision needs to be made quickly (i.e., emergencies)
- An unpopular decision needs to be made
