In the day to day life of every person, there are hundreds of conflicts that a person has to manage. These conflict situations can arise from the family life of a person, the professional life of a person or even the personal life of the person. Conflict situations can cause the person to have a lot of problems. These conflicts have to be managed efficiently and also effectively for a person to have a peaceful and fulfilling life.

There are various methods of managing conflict situations in the life of a person. This article gives a list of some of the methods that will help you to manage the conflict situations that can arise in your life. These methods can be either used alone or a person can use a combination of these methods to manage the conflicts.

The various methods in which people manage conflicts are by using the following techniques:

1. Competing:

In this method of conflict management, the individual in a problem or a situation will try to compete with another person for the sake of doing it, though there may be no relevant positive outcome from the whole situation. Competing is a type of conflict management in which the person in the situation wants certain things to go his or her own way and does not take into account, the other person's feelings.

2. Collaborating:

This is one method of conflict management in which, the person tries to collaborate with the other person. This is one of the best methods of conflict management. In this method, the person tries to make sure that the needs of both the parties or both the people involved in the conflict are satisfied. This is a situation in which, the needs of every person involved is taken into account before the final decision is made.

3. Compromising:

This is usually a submissive method of conflict management. There can be both positive an also negative outcomes in this method of conflict management. An individual in a conflict situation tries not to antagonize the other person and accepts all the terms and conditions set by the other person. This method of conflict management that occurs in a person makes them to be submissive and compromise.

4. Avoiding:

A person who avoids the opposite party in a conflict itself is also another method of conflict management and is called as avoiding. This type of conflict management is a negative method because it does not solve the conflict. Instead, it only prologs it till the time the person takes stock of the situation and tries to solve the problem.

5. Accommodating:

This is another method of conflict management and as the name indicates, the person in the conflict accommodates and agrees to the terms set by the other person. This is the opposite of competing. Though this kind of conflict management reduces or even solves the conflict, it reduces the stature of the person accommodating, as more people will take that person for a ride.
