  • Interest-Based Relational (IBR) approach: This framework focuses on the underlying interests and needs of individuals involved in a conflict, rather than just the positions they are taking. By addressing these interests and needs, conflicts can be more effectively resolved.
  • Johari Window: This model helps individuals increase self-awareness and improve communication by identifying and understanding different aspects of their own personality and behavior.
  1. The TKI can be used to help individuals understand their natural conflict-handling styles and how to adapt their approach for different situations.
  2. The IBR approach can be used to facilitate effective conflict resolution by focusing on the underlying interests and needs of all parties involved.
  3. The Johari Window can be used to improve communication and understanding among team members by increasing self-awareness and identifying areas for improvement in interpersonal interactions.
