Marty MacClain is a producer for KALW radio in San Francisco as well as an itinerant poet who can give you the latest news, or directions to the closest Peet's Coffee, with the poetic timbre of Alan Ginsburg's Howl. Marty is a thinker and writer whose connection to San Francisco dates back to the days of the San Francisco Diggers when he co-founded the Free Business Bureau and printed social commentary on a press operated by a collective of cultural anarchists called Jelly Roll Press.

Stewart Levine, principle consultant at Resoutionary Works, is a creative problem solver. He is widely recognized for creating agreement and empowerment in the most challenging circumstances. He improves productivity while saving the enormous cost of conflict. His innovative work with "Agreements for Results' and his "Resolutionary" conversational models are unique.

As a practicing lawyer he realized that fighting was a very ineffective way of resolving problems. As a marketing executive for AT&T he saw that the reason collaborations fall apart is that people do not spend the time at the beginning of new working relationships to create clarity about what they want to accomplish together, and how they will get there.

This is true for employment relationships, teams, joint ventures and all members of any virtual team. As a result of his observations he designed conversational models that create "Agreements for Results," and a quick return to productivity when those working relationships break down. >>more . . .
