Making Group Decisions (Consensus Decision-Making)
A dynamic day devoted to helping you create powerful and above all happy decisions in groups.
Consensus based decision making is a process for groups to generate widespread agreement in a way that respects the contributions of all participants. It encourages cooperation and leads to better decisions that stick. What’s not to like.
This event will give you the tools and experience to build consensus in practice. The day will build the confidence of anyone keen to build cooperation and give you a solid basis on which to develop your own skills. There’ll be guidance and discussion on the different challenges and opportunities when best to use consensus models. You’ll look out how to apply models within the context of community engagement, internally at your organisation and alongside a consultation process. We also make sure each hour is packed with engaging exercises and debate – you definitely won’t be staring at PowerPoint all day!
