Assessing a Destructive Conflict and Conflict Style

Assess a destructive conflict, your own conflict style, and how to appropriately resolve it.

Summarize a conflict you recently experienced for the factors that made it destructive in nature. Utilizing the conflict styles assessment, informally interview two persons close to you about their perceptions of your personal conflict style. Discuss the differences between your own and others’ perceptions of your style. Include both positives and negatives of your style. Reflecting on your destructive conflict, what other conflict style could you adopt to constructively resolve that conflict? This should include prescriptive behaviors that overcome the weaknesses or use the strengths to constructively resolve the situation.
