Conflict management - The Shaolin way

Conflict in the work environment is a very common and delicate situation that can often, not properly handled, result into mobbing or a loss of productivity caused by frustration.

In this respect, monasteries have always been examples due to their own composition and their way of life, are living together 24/7 all year long, there is no possibility to "get out of each other's way". Therefore, the tradition of the Order of Shaolin offers highly effective instruments for conflict situations. These ancestral principles can be used by modern corporate management to create conflict solving tools in order to satisfy all parties using a comprehensive and methodological approach.
