OBI-100: Changing the Way the World Gets Divorced (Marketing Your Collaborative Practice)

(professionals training) (eight hours)
Workshop Description: Do you dream of a day when prospective clients and other professionals seek you out specifically for your collaborative expertise? Do you imagine clients approaching you, saying “I want a collaborative divorce”? Can you envision “opposing” counsel asking you to represent their client’s spouse, collaboratively? What are you doing to make those dreams a reality? Do you communicate your passion with clarity? Have you honed a compelling pitch that invites questions? Are you credible in your community? When you blog, do people feel compelled to weigh in? Have you published a book yet? Are you often invited to communicate your message to a crowd, instead of to just one person at a time?
How often and to whom do you present? Is your brand conspicuous? How visible is your profile? Are you invited to partner with, not just teams and practice groups, but also first responders and connectors who can help you change the way the world gets divorced? Equip yourself with the tools that you need to grow your collaborative
practice; learn them from someone who knows so that you can answer these questions and more with a resounding “yes!”

OBI-102 Managing Your Collaborative Practice

(staff and professionals training) (eight hours)
Workshop Description: As a collaborative divorce professional, you want to ensure that your clients experience the best divorce possible. In order to do that, you must proactively design your office structure, your policies and procedures, and your team culture to reflect your vision and your passion: enabling clients to achieve what many see as impossible — divorce with dignity, a conclusion to a marriage that serves as a positive and healthy step toward a restructured family’s future. Every collaborative services business, no matter the size, no matter whether legal, mental health, or financial, must have standards, and establishing your own set of policies and procedures (often called an operations manual) will help your business run more smoothly— especially when you can’t be there. More importantly, if you offer collaborative divorce services, your staff must understand the attitude and the ambiance that must travel with those services. Your space must reflect the collaborative process, as well, cocooning your clients in an inspirational atmosphere that empowers them to make the right decisions for their families. This workshop will equip your staffers to talk-the-talk and to walk-the-walk, ensuring that your team’s culture, your office policies and procedures, and your space’s infrastructure all project the same enthusiasm for collaborative practice as you yourself do.

OBI-103 Organizing and Operating Your Collaborative Pro Bono Project

(professionals training) (eight hours)
Workshop Description: Have you concluded that a Collaborative Divorce Pro Bono Project is the perfect tool to get the word out? Is it the right means to empower your community to adopt the collaborative divorce concept as a positive alternative to the destruction wreaked in a traditional courtroom divorce? Do you seek practical advice on how to get such a project off the ground? Do you want on-the-ground counsel on how to manage such a project, from finding volunteers and staffing collaborative teams to scheduling collaborative meetings and debriefing clients? Are you looking for sample forms and documents as a real-world, hit-the-ground-running, head start for your own pro bono project? Whether you are new to collaborative practice or a seasoned veteran focused on bringing this divorce option into the public eye, this workshop will answer all of your questions about how to get your project up and running successfully, an invaluable tool in your peacemaking efforts, and it will teach you the skills you need to manage that project in such a way that you spread the word and change the way the world gets divorced!
