Welcome to new visitors and hi to old friends,
I've been on a travel sabbatical in 2016 while taking care of some tasks that needed my focus. The travel sabbatical apparently turned into a sabbatical from updating the website.
Among many other things, I have sent my latest book off to press at the ABA. See www.lawyersaschangemakers.com for more info about that. Our expected date of publication is August, 2016.
The travel sabbatical has come to an end. I am writing this from New York and the ABA ADR Conference is just wrapping up. Later this month, I will be off to Dayton, Ohio for the Transformative Mediation conference and a flurry of other travel.
I hope to write a long catch up email and post soon.
Last night, I wrote an eloquent report of my last circumnavigation of Earth, complete with links and photos and inspiring updates. Just as I was about to save it, something went "Blip!" and it was lost. In a few words: The trip was awesome and I am hopeful and inspired! I'll overcome the angst of losing the other post and recreate it soon.
However, a part of my post was time sensitive and so I am sending this as a special announcement.
Have you noticed how legal documents often take the soul out of agreements?
Would you like to learn to write documents that create sustainable relationships?
Do you want to connect with conscious businesses and work with clients who value your input?
The most popular workshop I lead is Conscious Contracts. It has been a big hit in Europe and Australia and has had significant traction and interest in the US, South Africa, and India. The evaluations have praised the course with scores of 3.75+ on a scale of 4.0. The comments have included statements about how it changed the lives of the participants, far beyond any CLE/CPD they've ever taken.
Here is one of the descriptions of the course:
Many businesses are now focussing on creating value-based cultures. This workshop will discuss how lawyers can assist companies align their legal documents with their company values, creating long-term sustainable relationships in all legal documents
And the 3.5-minute Sketchvideo about Conscious Contracts can be seen at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=30coypdjTwE
While I have been off leading workshops, Linda Alvarez has been writing the book on the topic. A description of the book from Linda:
