Competitive Conflict Management
"Just do it this way!"
It is most effective in conflict which involves personal differences that are unlikely to change. It is valuable as a counter measure in situations where others are likely to take advantage of those who display a non-competitive nature. It is also valuable in circumstances which require a quick decision. Finally, one of its greatest values is in making unpopular decisions which need to be implemented.
Few relationships have extremes of conflict which make equitable solutions impossible. But, few is not none.
Competitive leaders provide clear expectations for what, when and how things need to be done.
There is a clear demarcation between leader and follower. Authoritarian decision makers make choices independently with little or no input from the rest of the group.
The down side of the model is the hostility it has a tendency to breed in those on the losing side. This is especially true when it is the only style of conflict management being utilized.
