Below are some experiences that coaches and others have shared:
One of my business clients was concerned about losing productivity at work. At closer look, we discovered that the root of the problem was at home. His insistence that his wife support him by acting in ways he deemed “right” was draining his energy.
I suggested that he use the Agreement “to see the best in myself and others” and requested, “Why don’t you talk with your wife about only what she’s doing right for the next week?” He did so, and the result was nothing less than transformative.
Both his relationship with his wife and his productivity at work experienced a dramatic turnaround.Laurie Weiss
Incorporating the Agreements into my daily life has freed me in ways I did not think possible. I have changed what doesn’t work. I no longer feel the need to carry and solve others’ problems.Joe Obregon
I met with an internal consultant for some coaching. She gave me a copy of Revolutionary Agreements that I read and re-read over the weekend. By Monday I was energized and ready to recommit myself to take on the role of facilitating positive changes within this core organization…
…We have been functioning as a cohesive team with our new agreements for seven months now and to say that this core organization has turned itself around would be an understatement. I look back and remember upper management laughing at my one-year goal strategy. Back then, they did not know about the power of using the Agreements.
I can say that I am in love again with my career and assert that the Agreements are the best tools for stress reduction I have ever found.Dan L.
Practicing these Agreements virtually eliminates negative gossip. And the benefits of more compassionate communication and deeper relationships are deeply gratifying.
The Agreements are the foundation and the reason our community is thriving. If all communities were to adopt or adapt these Agreements – families, neighborhoods, businesses, nations (why not?) – the world would be an even more wonderful place to live.Gail Davidson

The Revolutionary Agreements serve as a cornerstone of my life inviting me to live with greater peace, love, joy and integrity.Kim Zoller

Revolutionary Agreements has become a handbook for integrating my professional and personal life.Judith Bonfoey
We are using the Agreements with success in our personal community of family, core friends and coaching clients, so why not go global? We recognized the simplicity and yet profound nature of these timeless tools as marvelous anchors in a world wrought by separateness and challenges and we set our sights higher and outward to reach a broader community. So now we dedicate an article in each of our monthly newsletters to one agreement and send it out to seed the planet with positive ideas for change.Bob & Peggy McArthur
The agreements are valuable because they bring so many things into conscious awareness. Through the use of just one agreement, I was able to resolve a conflict with tenants directly, easily and amicably without unnecessarily involving the owners. I realized how often we tell others instead of speaking directly to those with whom we can resolve our issues, and am grateful for this positive experience of putting the Revolutionary Agreements into action.Kathy
The Revolutionary Agreements book is my bedside companion. Every morning I randomly choose an agreement to focus on, which contributes to my feeling more peaceful, joy-filled and centered throughout my day. Revolutionary Agreements is a lifelong tool.Lynda Visosky
I have had the privilege of watching the author live these Agreements and consistently put them into practice through very stressful times in our company’s history. Marian’s leadership, holding fast to the principles of these Agreements, transformed interpersonal and organizational struggles of “I’m right–you’re wrong” into genuine, joyful collaboration, ultimately creating “we” out of “us and them.” I highly recommend Revolutionary Agreements to anyone wanting to improve the productivity of their work and the quality of their lives.Bill Merlo
