Abstract

Conflict Management has a significant impact on organizational growth. This study investigates research on various personality traits of the topmost hierarchy in any organization. The study investigates how they deal with conflicts in their organizations to keep the organization's functions running smoothly. The sampling was purposely done selectively; 25 heads of various organizations in various fields were asked to inform their point of view regarding Conflict Management. Two reliable scales from reliable resources, i.e., TKI (Thomas et al.) and BFI (Big Five inventory), have been used to generate the results. The data has been treated for descriptive statistics, and frequencies and correlational values have been calculated. It has been found that at the top level, Collaborating and Accommodating were the most preferred styles, and Competing was the least preferred style in Conflict Management. Whereas in BFI, the participants scored high in Agreeableness and Conscientiousness. However, the level of Neuroticism was observed to be extremely low in all the participants.
