- Avoiding: Ignore/ sidestep the issue hoping it will go away(flight)
- Accommodating: Tries to satisfy the other party at their own expense(fawn)
- Compromising: Tries to find acceptable solution that partly satisfies all parties.
- Competing: Prioritize own needs(fight)
- Collaborating: Finds a solution that satisfies all parties.
