DISCOVERING AGREEMENT: Contracts That Turn Conflict Into Creativity
(American Bar Assoc. Flagship Book)
– a $50.00 value!
Today’s innovative business leaders want to make sure their companies do well, and do good for everyone they touch. These conscious business leaders often see a big disconnect between maintaining strong relationships with their stakeholders and the tools the legal system gives them to resolve disputes. Conscious Contracts are about closing that disconnect. – Glenn Meier
Imagine a contract that:
- Stimulates and supports rapid return to alignment and productivity
in the face of unexpected change,
- Inspires side-by-side problem-solving rather than adversarial
confrontation when parties disagree,
- Learns with the business as it navigates the ever-changing,
digital-speed, modern marketplace.
Conscious Contracts take an entirely new approach to negotiating and drafting contracts,
allowing the parties to express their shared vision, mission and values, and giving the parties a
completely new framework for handling disputes, one that allows them to stay aligned with those core principles. These contracts are not weapons to be deployed in a legal battle, they are tools that create space for the parties to come out of conflict together, stronger than before.
In this course you will learn how to:
- Uncover the core principles that connect you to your stakeholders;
- Use those principles as a lighthouse that can guide you through disruptive events;
- Transform events of conflict from challenges that threaten to destroy relationships to opportunities to build and strengthen them;
- Align your interactions with others, and with the legal system, to your most important values and principles. Lawyers, learn how to deliver these innovative tools to your clients and bring them value in new and expansive ways.
This training is for lawyers and non-lawyers alike!
Learn how business people and their lawyers can work together to make the legal system an ally (rather than an obstacle) in the quest to do well by doing good.
