When to use:
There is an emergency that requires quick and decisive action.
When unpopular steps are necessary, such as enforcing rules, disciplining team members or cutting costs.
The company is on the line and you know what it will take to get it back on track.
Some people will take advantage of those who display non-competitive behaviour. In this case, it is necessary to adopt a competitive strategy to protect yourself and your interests.
Job interviews, negotiating pay and getting on your manager’s calendar.
When not to use:
If the outcome doesn’t really matter to you and there is no reason to compete.
When you are not the subject matter expert, competing for the strongest voice is inappropriate and will create even more conflict.
It is easy to become competitive when you are angry and want to prove a point. Using whatever power you have, to express this anger is not effective behaviour for leaders.
You may be overusing the competing mode of conflict-handling if you find yourself surrounded by “yes people,” or if others are afraid to admit mistakes or ask you questions.
