Such an inclusive approach is essential for shaping a progressive, dynamic workforce that values and leverages the strengths inherent in diversity. Moreover, the impact of Nonflict is brought home to families, spouses and kids learning how to embrace conflict in a clear way, and then extends to friends and community life, influencing broader societal dynamics.
