Accommodating conflict style

Also, this style of conflict resolution finds solutions when time is critical.

This style of conflict resolution tends to avoid conflicts altogether, as the name implies.

The style delays the conflict, and the person does not attempt to satisfy his own point of view or that of others.

This is not to say, "Thou shalt collaborate" in a moralizing way, but to indicate the expected consequences of each approach: If we use a competing style, we might force the others to accept 'our' solution, but this acceptance may be accompanied by fear and resentment.

If we accommodate, the relationship may proceed smoothly, but we may build up frustrations that our needs are going unmet.

Others may take advantage of this style of conflict resolution.

The style works best in team environments, when listening skills are most important.

The style has its place in certain situations where decisiveness is necessary.
