Conflict Resolution

Hello,  I am finishing off my first assessment (CIPD L5) and am looking at the Conflict Resolution models. When looking at the video they ask you to talk about two different models. I have one model I am going to discuss but wondered if anyone else was in the same predicament? I'm unsure of another model to talk about.
