We're living in a time of profound and rapid change, where new models such as B Corps, Social Enterprises, and the sharing economy are challenging entrenched, top-down, hierarchical models and systems. It's one thing to shift our consciousness, and quite another to change entrenched ways of getting things done.
The contracts we enter into create the "private law" that applies to our relationships. Most people see contracts as scary, difficult to understand documents that may lead to disagreements and liability, rather than what they can be: a summary of shared commitments, verbalized expectations, and a blueprint for the best possible outcome.
I'm excited to be partnering with J. Kim Wright in bringing her Conscious Contracts Workshop to Boulder on August 10-11, 2017. Lawyers will earn 14 CLE credits, but the workshop is designed for non-lawyers too.
