ACCEPTABLE COURSE SOURCES:

75%Avoider 75%

Avoiders tend to step away from conflict. They often keep their opinions to themselves in conflict situations so as not to continue or escalate the conflict. They are often admired for having a calming, quiet presence in the face of crisis.

Weaknesses: Avoiders sometimes keep their feelings bottled up and then aren’t able to meet their own needs. This can result in a frustrating buildup of emotions.

 

 

Interpreting your scores

Each conflict style presented here has been scored individually. The percentage identifies how often you selected the particular style when it was provided as an option in the assessment.

You may look at your scores and wonder how “right” they are. There are no right and wrong answers in this assessment, as it examines how you handle conflict situations which can vary greatly. Different contexts call for different approaches, and there is a time and a place to use each of the conflict styles. 

71%Accommodator 71%

Accommodators have a harmonizing approach to conflict.  They often focus on supporting others in a conflict situation and are adept at placating people in uncomfortable situations. Accommodators often gain strong appreciation from others involved in a conflict.

Weaknesses: Accommodators may build up resentment from denying their own needs. It also may be difficult for those who want to get to the root of the problem to work with Accommodators who tend to focus on making others happy.

Problem Solvers tend to want to discuss all the details of a problem and work through it together so that everyone gets what he or she wants and is happy in the end. Their strengths are that they tend to welcome differences, build high-levels of trust and mutual understanding in relationships. There is also the potential to learn from creative problem solving.

Weaknesses: When time is a factor, it is difficult to spend the energy and time needed to process the way Problem Solvers tend do. There is also the potential for burnout from over-processing.

36%Compromiser 36%

Compromisers approach conflict with the goal of compromise. They tend to think about what they are willing to give up and what they are willing to hold on to, and try to gear communication to focus on this give and take for all parties. It is a good way to promote cooperation. It can be done fairly quickly when both parties are engaged.

Their strengths are that they are often passionate about their views and dedicated to pursuing their convictions. Competers are good at making quick decisions, and tend not to waste time, which is especially helpful in the time of crisis.

Weaknesses: Sometimes Competers wind up with unequal relationships with others, and feelings of others can be hurt or overlooked with their decision-making style.

Brief: Personal Conflict Style Assignment Instructions

Overview

In the marketplace, your ability to integrate form and content for a professional audience is a valuable part of everyday communication. This gets tricky when the content is more personal or poses a challenge in some way.

In both cases, the art of communicating to maximize impact, professionalism and constructive outcomes are crucial. So is clarity. That’s why a brief is so valuable. A brief is the marketplace equivalent of a mini academic paper written to a professional audience. The integration of form and content in this format helps to refine your ideas and equips you to write for impact. This assignment is designed to engage you in this style of writing while expanding your content connections.

This assignment will introduce you to facets of conflict at an interpersonal level and equip you to engage your conflict style in a professional setting. The audience for this brief is your boss, supervisor or current leadership. It should be written as though you are submitting it to them for review and discussion.

Instructions

Begin by taking the personal conflict assessment provided by the United States Institute of Peace. You can find this link on the Brief: Personal Conflict Style Assignment page under Brief: Personal Conflict Style Resources.

Review your results and, using videos and readings from class, answer the questions below.

1. Based on the assessment, how do you tend to respond to conflict?

a. What were your results / percentages for each conflict style?

b. Were you surprised? If so, in what ways? OR was this confirmation? If so, in what ways?

2. What factors contribute / have contributed to your conflict style? Consider what you’re learning from course readings and videos as you answer these questions.

a. What struggles do you face when addressing a conflict situation?

b. What strengths do you bring to situations that require conflict management?

3. How can you become more effective in your approach?

a. Identify two specific aspects of conflict management you can focus on to improve your effectiveness.

b. Provide one specific strategy for improving each aspect.

c. Provide one biblical truth that supports your development of each strategy and thoughtfully explain the connection.

5.
Any sources cited must have been published within the last five years, unless citing classic, philosophical, literary or historical and theoretical information or research. Acceptable sources include course materials, and scholarly peer-reviewed sources, and the Bible. At least one of the sources must be from course materials and two from scholarly peer-reviewed articles or texts.

Here’s how to prepare an Executive Summary.

· ASK YOURSELF: If my target audience could only read this one page to understand my brief, what do they need to know? By the time the reader finishes the Executive Summary, they should be able to:

· State the main idea.

· Clearly identify the key insights or significant points made in your brief.

· Accurately recap the next steps based on your findings.

· WHAT TO INCLUDE: Follow these guidelines to ensure that the content is complete.

· Clear statement of purpose. This is your thesis (your WHY) for the brief.

· Key insights. Be specific, not vague. Share your findings here.

· Next steps. Be specific. List what you’ve learned that’s relevant to your audience.

· Concise writing. Stay focused and on point with your content.

· Professional language. Write for your audience. Aim to be clear, not clever.

· Easy-to-read formatting. Use bullet points to emphasize key ideas.

· APA citations. Usen APA style if source support is provided.

· MORE ON HOW TO WRITE AN EXECUTIVE SUMMARY. Use the general structural recommendations in these sources for additional insight into how to prepare an Executive Summary. These are only guides. Emulate aspects of these sources that help you frame your brief well. You can find links to these articles on the Brief: Personal Conflict Style Assignment page under Brief: Personal Conflict Style Resources.

GOOD STYLISTIC APPROACH: This will help you think through how to be compelling in this part of your brief.

GOOD GENERAL OVERVIEW: This will help you think through how to format for impact.

GOOD ACADEMIC ABSTRACT vs. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY REVIEW: This will help you avoid writing the more traditional academic abstract, which serves a similar function in scholarly papers/publications.

Note: Your assignment will be checked for originality via the Turnitin plagiarism tool.
