Collaboration, though useful, calls for a significant time commitment not appropriate to all conflicts.

Accommodating
It entails giving the opposing side what it wants. 

The use of accommodation often occurs when one of the parties wishes to keep the peace or perceives the issue as minor. Employees who use accommodation as a primary conflict management strategy, however, may keep track and develop resentment.

Compromising

The compromising strategy typically calls for both sides of a conflict to give up elements of their position in order to establish an acceptable, if not agreeable, solution. 

This strategy prevails most often in conflicts where the parties hold approximately equivalent power.

Competition operates as a zero-sum game, in which one side wins and other loses.

5 Steps for Effective Crisis Negotiation
  • Prepare for crisis: Good crisis-management plans predict and set mechanisms to deal with and minimize the effects of disputes.
  • Establish ground rules: This establishes a foundation for trust, and disincentivizes extreme demands.
  • Confront emotions head-on: Listen to your counterpart's demands aiming to identify his underlying motivations. Active-listening techniques, such as self-disclosure, paraphrasing, and supportive remarks may help.
  • Don’t rush the process: Strong emotions have a tendency to de-escalate over time, which may lead to lighter demands.
  • Strengthen the relationship: establishing positive bonds helps both parties to see what would satisfy its counterpart.
