Consensus decision making is a creative and dynamic way of reaching agreement between all members of a group. Instead of simply voting for an item and having the majority of the group getting their way, a group using consensus is committed to finding solutions that everyone actively supports, or at least can live with.
A Consensus Handbook explains the spirit and philosophy of co-operative decision making as well as providing practical guidance on how to facilitate a consensus process. This comprehensive guide looks at common situations and explain the skills and tools your group can use to ease the path to a decision. This book covers techniques for decision-making in small and large groups as well as virtual meetings.
We've also included material on some of the pitfalls and problems you and your group may face - and have provided some suggestions of how to deal with them!
Whether you're new to consensus or are experienced; whether you think it's the best way to make decisions or are struggling to make it work: this handbook for consensus decision making is for you.
