From Flying Solo to Sharing the Cockpit: How to Move from Traditional Practice to Shared Leadership

March 7, 2014

Rita Pollak, internationally acclaimed Collaborative Law trainer, teaching on "From Flying Solo to Sharing the Cockpit: How to Move from Traditional Practice to Shared Leadership"

OACP Education Conference, at the Kennedy School, Portland, OR Friday, May 16, 2014

Family law attorneys, mental health and financial professionals are accustomed to being solely responsible for the well-being of their clients, and for being able to seriously influence the outcome for them. In collaborative practice we shift from that single-minded perspective to using a Collaborative Team of professionals to meet the multiple and diverse needs of clients and their families:

Attorneys are uniquely trained and experienced in knowing the law, educating their clients about their rights and options and leading negotiations to get clients what they want.

Mental Health Professionals, collaborative coaches and child specialists, are expert in understanding and dealing with the emotional underpinnings of separation and divorce, in helping the clients move from the "here and now" to a future after divorce.

Financial Specialists, who are neutral professionals on the Team, educate clients, create short-term and longer term options and help level the playing field of understanding and competence with money management.

This Team is designed and managed to share the "controls in the cockpit," so that the clients get the best from each member of the Team.

Sharing responsibility among colleagues this way has its benefits and its challenges; we will 'call them out' and address them.

Using co-facilitation skills, accessing the power of neutrality and learning how to trust your co-pilots will enhance your ability to be a skillful collaborative practitioner.
