5 ways for quality communication (and conflict resolution) between interlocutors

Conflicts are resolved through a variety of communication styles. Sometimes it is not appropriate to seek cooperation or compromise.
Competition-style of resolving conflicting communications when the interlocutor pursues his/hers own interests to the detriment of others. This style is useful in emergencies when it is important to make a quick decision or need protection from people who take advantage of someone’s adaptability.
Adaptation-is a style of conflict resolution to meet the interests of other participants in communication. This style is useful when a person is wrong and wants to show a dose of common sense. It can be used when the outcome is much more important to other interlocutors. Thus a person shows generosity or maintains harmony in relationships between people which is more important and essential than achieving a goal.
Avoidance-is a style of conflict communication solution by avoiding conflict to diplomatically delay the resolution of a problem until conditions become favorable. Or the conversation participant withdraws from the threatening situation. This style is useful for trivial communications. Either when the interlocutor needs additional information, or considers that there is no possibility of self-interest or the potential harm of entering the conflict outweighs the possible gains by resolving the conflict.
The compromise goal is to find a solution that partially satisfies both parties or all participants in the conversation. This goal is useful when goals are moderately important, or opposing parties are equally powerful and strongly committed to exclusive goals, or when a temporary solution to a complex problem needs to be achieved.
Collaboration-involves trying to establish an agreement with other participants in the conversation to reach an appropriate solution. Cooperation means researching disagreements, solving problems in a creative way and learning from the perspective of other interlocutors. This style is useful when the problem is important to all interlocutors and compromise is not a good option.
The attitude or point of view of the interlocutor is a factor that makes the difference between destroying a relationship and deepening the relationship. Depending on the situation, conflicting conversations or disagreements in communication should have an appropriate solution that should be useful or as useful as possible to all participants in communication.
