This course also focuses on the quality of verbal and non-verbal expression. We will teach you how to make good team deals and basic rules of decision-making mechanisms.

Assertiveness

A person like this can listen to others and make compromises, and also ask for a favour and do a favour for others. This course will teach you how to get your way and how to say “no” to unacceptable demands.

Shaolin courses

Self-Empowerment the Shaolin way

Many professionals and managers are constantly under stress that results in a feeling of stagnation. This training is not about philosophy. We will provide you with all the necessary techniques, tools and knowledge to support you in improving the quality of your professional life.

The Art of Strategy

29 NOVEMBER | Strategy is the art of planning of behaviors and concepts in such a way that the goals of the company are achieved. The Order of Shaolin itself is an example of a successful strategy, as it exists for more than 1,500 years. The basis is the strategic advice found in Asian classics such as “The Art of War“, the “Hagakure“, the “Stratagems“, or the “Book of the Five Rings“ and the teachings of Confucius and Lao Tse. The contents are related to our modern lives, can be applied correspondingly and can be implemented directly in contemporary situations.

Stress Management the Shaolin way

TO BE CONFIRMED | Stress seems to be an unavoidable fact of life in our modern society. Constant stress can lead to feeling exhausted, pessimistic and even depressed. The negative impacts on the individual are obvious, both on a personal and a professional level. It is interesting to see how an uninterrupted tradition of knowledge that is more than 1,500 years old can prove an effective means for coping with pressure and stress.

Shaolin Conflict Management

TO BE CONFIRMED | Conflicts when dealing with each other are actually a very normal occurrence in our society. However, the culture of arguing must be learned – but where? It is clear that managers need communication skills, problem-solving competence, and team development capabilities to motivate their employees. But what about implementing these in practice? A constructive way to deal with conflicts can be learned. Use this chance to turn conflicts into opportunities and opportunities into advantages.
