adversarial approach

By on / Glossary

An approach to conflict that sees negotiation as combat; the tougher and more aggressive negotiator wins, and the more conciliatory one loses. The adversarial approach lends itself to competition between negotiators. (Robert H. Mnookin, Scott R. Peppet and Andrew S. Tulumello, Beyond Winning [Belknap Press, 2004], 169)
