The Book of Agreement: 10 Essential Elements for Getting the Results You Want

Front Cover
ReadHowYouWant.com, 2010 - Business & Economics - 384 pages
Teaches a fundamental life skill-crafting mutually satisfying agreements Describes ten essential elements for designing agreements focused on achieving results rather than providing remedies for what might go wrong-a more effective alternative to the traditional legal/adversarial approach Includes thirty model agreements for business, personal, and professional uses Crafting agreements with others is a fundamental life skill. Unfortunately, we were never taught how to do it. The agreements most people make are incomplete and ineffective-they usually focus on protecting against what might go wrong instead of figuring out how to make things go right. The Book of Agreement offers a new approach. Stewart Levine demonstrates the superiority of ''agreements for results'' versus ''agreements for protection'' and outlines ten principles for creating agreements that explicitly articulate desired outcomes and provide a roadmap to achieving them. He includes over thirty specific templates that can be used to create this new type of agreement for results in a variety of organizational and personal contexts.
