Conflict is largely a perceived phenomenon. It is our perception of the situation that determines if a conflict exists. It is useful to assess our predominant conflict management style(s) because we tend to get stuck in one or two styles and apply them inappropriately. The emphasis is not on judging any style right or wrong. Each person determines their predominant conflict management style.
The remainder of the Conflict Management tip contains information on how to identify personal management style(s), develop an awareness of strategies used in each conflict management style.
