Intro to Conscious Contracts® Training

Next Course Happening in March!

March 25th & 26th, 2022

Friday 2:00-5:00PM Saturday Noon-5:30PM EST

Join us for this 2-day Training to get introduced to the basics of the Conscious Contracts® model!

Conscious Contracts® is a registered trademark for a process of contract formation. It is consistent with many of the best practices of modern contracts like plain language, design thinking, visuals, but has distinctive elements of its own:

  • The Touchstone helps create the true meeting of the minds among the parties and makes sure there is alignment of purpose and values.
  • The Addressing Change & Engaging Disagreement (ACED Clause) allows the parties to design a sustainable culture including how they will communicate, manage change, engage disagreements and maintain a more conscious culture.  

Used on every continent, this model helps to build trust and certainty in a VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, Ambiguous) world.  Practitioners are often trained in nonviolent communication, restorative justice, collaborative practice, mediation, and other skills that expand their toolkit and capacity to practice in a new paradigm approach. Most participants are lawyers but we have also trained and welcome coaches, consultants, mediators, and entrepreneurs.  The model is also useful in designing meaningful agreements for organizations and groups working on long-term projects.

Format: Zoom live workshop
