With a constant dialogue to positive change
Why? To work together
When you take a clear-eyed look at conventional negotiation and drafting practices, what do you see? Attempts to predict, control and cover all possible problems and risks. One-sided, at the expense of the other party, and incomprehensible for non-lawyers. But how is that working for you realistically? How good are you at predicting and controlling the future? And how does it impinge on your relationship with the other when you take on the role of ‘future adversaries’ at the outset?
A contract can also be an instrument for stakeholders to work together. A conscious design of their ideal and intended relationship, that sets in place their value-oriented structures and systems for coping with change, addressing conflicts and managing crises. Comprehensible for everyone, not only for lawyers and judges. In short, a living and dynamic document that focusses on mutual intentions and a sustainable relationship. Instead of a call to arms. We are more than happy to help you writing your own conscious agreements, so you can:
incorporate your own beliefs and culture
ensure the translation of your vision, goals and values
choose your own favorite elements
get rid of unnecessary noise
Conscious agreements interrupt the habits and logic of the conventional mindset. They are navigational instruments with which you can create a healthy, sustainable and resilient business. Tools that optimize value creation for all your major stakeholders. Plus, they also incorporate the reality of complex business environments, rapid change, and the need for conscious communication.
