The Spiritual Side of ADR

What if spirituality was part of your regular business practices?

That question was answered in part when I had the pleasure of being a sponsor for the Harvard Negotiation Insight Initiative Fall Dialogue on November 18th.

The discussion between John Paul Lederach, author of Moral Imagination: The Art and Soul of Building Peace and Reverand Professor Peter Gomes of Harvard's Memorial Church soulfully explored essential questions of our time-

    How do we reduce suffering in the world?

    What is the nature of hope and optimism?

The conversation was so rich and compelling that one could clearly see the connection between our work and the world of spirituality. I strongly urge you to consider attending any of the upcoming HNII events.

It's part of your commitment to thinking like an entrepreneur to hone all your skills: business, mediation, and spiritual. Besides, it was quite wonderful and humbling to spend time reflecting on how peacemakers can and do change the world.

Here's the info for the next event.
