What are Revolutionary Agreements?
In June 1985, Glenn and Marian Head cofounded the Geneva Group, a network of business people formed to support one another in living their highest values in every aspect of their lives, and especially in their businesses. Participants’ commitment to long-term relationships with their clients, staffs, and partners – founded in their belief that we are all connected and thus responsible for the good of the whole – inspired them to develop a set of agreements to guide them in being models for a harmonious world.
That forum met monthly for twenty years, during which time the agreements evolved as they were practiced. The “Revolutionary Agreements” emerged in 2005 as Marian’s version of the essence of those agreements, with an award-winning book of the same name. They are dubbed “Revolutionary” because practicing them has the power to shift one’s life from the prevailing societal paradigm of negativity to one of positivity and infinite possibility.
“Revolutionary Agreements is a though-provoking and inspiring set of techniques to facilitate true peace in personal relationships.” –Former US Congressman Dennis J. Kucinich, 2003 recipient of the Gandhi Peace Award.
What is the Agreements Institute?
The Institute serves coaches, trainers, consultants, and facilitators by providing them with the training, certification, and tools to enjoy greater inner peace during stressful times, and enriched relationships from the boardroom to the bedroom – and to show others how to do the same. Modeling outstanding relationships based on authenticity, respect, and gratitude, Agreements Institute graduates guide their clients to create or adopt Agreements that serve their clients’ lives and chosen work.
Certified Revolutionary Agreements Coaching is accredited by the International Coach Federation (ICF) for 33 continuing education units.
As more of our colleagues offer conscious agreements for their clients to experience greater inner peace, together we cocreate greater Peace on Earth. This is the purpose of the Agreements Institute.

Who are the Founders, Marian & Glenn Head?
Since meeting as speakers at an international conference in 1981, Marian and Glenn have been supporting people, organizations and movements to envision their ideal future and create it.

They feel honored to have had the opportunity to support extraordinary people working together to resolve issues of human survival, including His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Mother Teresa, US Vice-President Gore and President Gorbachev.

Marian and Glenn enjoy providing keynote workshops where participants “pay it forward” by passing on the benefits of what they learn by practicing the Agreements and offering programs in their own communities.
Marian especially enjoys radio, video conferences, teleseminars, and live interviews. A sampling of show host and conference organizer testimonials follow:

“What makes 80 people jump up and give a long standing ovation at the end of a four-hour workshop? Transformation. While they may have thought they were cheering for our inspiring facilitators Marian and Glenn Head, I believe they were cheering because they were exhilarated by the self-discoveries and positive changes they made during the Head’s highly-interactive keynote workshop at the Canadian New Thought Conference. Marian and Glenn and their Revolutionary Agreements made a difference in my life, and in the lives of many others, not just for a day, but for a lifetime.”
“I invited Marian & Glenn Head to keynote the opening night of our 5-day Unity Southeast People’s Conference, and to provide us with an experiential workshop on the afternoon of the second day. Their keynote was warm, inviting, entertaining and instructive, combining personal stories with exercises that engaged our participants. Throughout the event, I heard from participants about the depth of their learning as they explored the Agreements. Some said it was personally transformative. Ministers expressed gratitude for this new tool to bring to their congregations.
For many years I have used the Agreements with CEO’s, church communities, teachers, social workers, students and government workers to build community and improve self-esteem. I have always been amazed at their simplicity and depth. Marian and Glenn are truly global visionaries and revolutionary leaders who are modeling a new way of being in this world. I highly recommend this book for sermons and for church study groups and I highly recommend Marian and Glenn as presenters and facilitators of large group events.”

Answers for the Family Radio Show
“Marian was a complete delight to have as a guest on ‘Answers for the Family.’ Her amazing insight and real-life stories reach deep into the experiences we all struggle with – making our relationships with family, friends and associates successful ones. I personally loved her account of sitting down everyday and writing one thing she appreciated about her husband that transformed their relationship in a matter of a week! I have to ask myself, what would the world be like if we all had the courage to do this in the midst of conflict with others? We need more people like Marian in our world, who will take the time share their unique life-changing inspirations, successes and ‘Revolutionary Agreements’!
“Such a pleasure having you as my guest on A Better World Radio. You are an excellent speaker and listener, and I feel that you enter and dwell in the heart of the matter, the stuff and essence of what facilitates relationships to work and communication to be effective, even glisten. You have a major handle on the lever that makes the world a better place. Thanks again for being a guest and entering enriching and uplifting conversation with me.”

“Marian! What a delightful and insightful guest to have on our show today. You are a master at keeping very profound truths simple and practical. A lot of the authors, speakers, trainers, coaches I interview can get on a soapbox and forget that we are in a conversation. You kept a great balance and yet offered up insightful substance.
We had a lot of positive feedback and we would love to have you on the show to do a series to break down each section of your life-changing book. Thanks so much for putting these Revolutionary Agreements out into the world.”
