They dictate how we confront and navigate our social realities at home, at work and in our communities. Just as personalities are unique, when conflicts arise in either environments we also take on certain approaches or 'styles' as is referred in general. The styles we take on are influenced by the kind of conflict we are confronted by, our experience towards dealing with them, the outcome we wish to achieve and of course our individual beliefs, philosophies and personalities. Although there is an individual uniqueness to how people handle conflict, certain stereotypes have been identified according to the nature of the conflict and the resolution desired. We know them as 'Conflict Management Styles'. We all have our own preferred ways of dealing with conflict and they have become part of our pattern of behaviour. Managers, executives, industry leaders and politicians need to handle conflict well as part of the demands of their jobs; conflict management is a crucial skill in a leader.
