This workshop will discuss how lawyers can assist companies align their legal documents with their company’s values, creating long-term sustainable relationships in all legal documents.

—Kim Wright, Esq.

Assist businesses in taking the vision-led and values-driven journey further into their relationships with clients, service providers, employees, and partners with a style of contract that reflects the mission, vision and values of the contracting parties. Workshop participants have the opportunity to inquire into their own values and how they might impact their choices in life and law.

The workshop introduces the movement of Conscious Contracts® and equips participants with practical and relevant tools in drafting a Conscious Contract®. Participants are supported through the process of reimagining a contract from a traditional adversarial one, to one which responds to the needs of an organization trying to improve the relationships the business has with its employees, its suppliers, and its customers. Another core component of the new contract is that the parties design their own process for communicating about change and disagreements, allowing them to engage early in the process and resolve conflict at early stages.
