Thomas and Kilmann's 5 Styles of Conflict Management
A conflict style is a consistent pattern or approach that you use to manage disagreement with others.
Most people do not have a single way of dealing with differences, but we do tend to use patterns that we have used before when dealing with conflict. The pattern chosen depends on several factors: our personality, the individuals with whom you are involved in the conflict, time and place of the confrontation, and other situation factors.
The five style model is based on two main dimensions: concern for others and concern for self.
