Avoidance Conflict Management

The avoiding style of conflict management is a non-confrontational approach to problems. It involves passive behaviors such as withdrawing or side stepping issues of contention in order to avoid issues which might be harmful to relationships involved.

This approach is best used when disagreements develop from minor unimportant issues. This is a useful technique when time is needed in order to gather additional information for informed decision making. It is often employed when the negative impact of the confrontation out ways the benefit of a quick positive resolution.

Unfortunately, problems that are not quickly addressed tend to grow over time. Relationships can be damaged by unresolved issues. Overuse of this style can lead us into giving up too many of our personal goals and enable others to take advantage of us.
