    • 24. 24Training Confidential. For Internal Use Only Let’s watch a video!!
    • 25. 25Training Confidential. For Internal Use Only ACCOMMODATING This is when you cooperate to a high-degree, and it may be at your own expense, and actually work against your own goals, objectives, and desired outcomes. USES: • When you realize you are wrong or inexperienced • When the issue is much more important to the other person than to yourself • To build up social credits for later issues which are important to you • When continued competition would only damage your cause • When preserving harmony and avoiding disruption are especially important • To aid in the managerial development of subordinates by allowing them to experiment and learn from their own mistakes
    • 26. 26Training Confidential. For Internal Use Only AVOIDING This is when you simply avoid the issue. You aren’t helping the other party reach their goals, and you aren’t assertively pursuing your own. Sometimes issues will resolve themselves, but “hope is not a strategy”, and, in general, avoiding is not a good long term strategy. USES: • When an issue is trivial, and other more important issues are pressing • When you perceive no chance of satisfying your concerns • When the potential damage of confronting a conflict outweighs
    • 27. 27Training Confidential. For Internal Use Only COLLABORATING This is where you partner or pair up with the other party to achieve both of your goals. This is how you break free of the “win-lose” paradigm and seek the “win-win.” USES: • To find an integrative solution when both sets of concerns are too important to be compromised • When your objective is to learn – e.g. testing your own assumptions, understanding the view of others • To merge insights from people with different perspectives on a problem • To gain commitment by incorporating other’s concerns into a consensual decision • To work through the hard feelings which have been interfering with an interpersonal relationship
    • 28. 28Training Confidential. For Internal Use Only COMPETING This is the “win-lose” approach. You act in a very assertive way to achieve your goals, without seeking to cooperate with the other party, and it may be at the expense of the other party. USES: • When quick, decisive action is vital – e.g. emergencies • On important issues where unpopular courses of action need to be implemented – e.g. cost cutting, discipline • On issues vital to company welfare • To protect yourself against people who take advantage of non-competitive behaviour
    • 29. 29Training Confidential. For Internal Use Only COMPROMISING This is the “lose-lose” scenario where neither party really achieves what they want. This requires a moderate level of assertiveness and cooperation. The trap is to fall into compromising as an easy way out, when collaborating would produce a better solution. USES: • When goals are moderately important but not worth the effort or potential disruption of more assertive modes • When two opponents with equal power are strongly committed to mutually exclusive goals – e.g. as in labor management bargaining • To achieve temporary settlements to complex issues • To arrive at expedient solutions under time pressure • As a backup mode when collaboration or competition fails to be successful
    • 30. 30Training Confidential. For Internal Use Only Difference between Compromising & Collaborating COMPROMISING COLLABORATING This means that each person gets partially satisfied but not completely satisfied By maintaining trust among participants, speaking and listening with sensitivity and empathy — it’s possible to achieve total need satisfaction for both of them. It’s a 50-50 split where each person gets a share of the available pie. But a compromise could also be a 75/25 split. The more one gets, the less the other gets. With synergy, coming up with a creative solution that uniquely satisfies everyone’s needs, we thus achieve a 100/100 resolution instead of a 50/50 split.
