ADR Practice Builder
Last week I had the pleasure of speaking to faculty and students at the UMass Graduate Program in Dispute Resolution in lovely Dorchester, MA. It was such a treat because I have a great affection for the students there who are committed to making the world a better place, and because I taught in that program in the 90s. (Also, it was really gratifying to know that 25 people would get up on a cold winter morning to attend a meeting--it's gotta be special for me to get out of a warm bed at that hour!)
The program entitled, What the BLEEP is an Ombuds, was well-received, but what really surprised me was the audience reaction. Several people asked if there would be additional coursework on Ombuds. (Yes, I'm developing curriculum now) Others asked if I would lead a marketing course- and you know how I love marketing.
So, now I'm considering it. And, I really want your input as I make this decision. Specifically, I'd like your feedback about:
- Should I create a business development program based on my years of experiences (and mistakes) building several ADR businesses?
Should I change the name of this blog to ADR Practice Builder or add a second blog?
Truly, I need your help. I want to do this, but only if it will serve others well. Please make a comment here or drop me a private note at Dina at WorkWellTogether.com (replace at w/ @). Many thanks!
