An introduction to best practices in participatory decision-making.
Do you want to…
- help your group make time-efficient decisions?
- turn creative differences into an advantage?
- eliminate political struggle?
- give everyone a voice?
Formal Consensus and Sociocratic Consent are systems that a group can use to make decisions.
They offer a quick way to get the best creative decision a group can invent.
They do not require unanimous agreement, and they turn conflict into a resource.
They are used by businesses, intentional communities and activist groups on several continents.
We have integrated these two systems into a simple, coherent whole, and we will share it with you in this brief introduction.
By the end of the workshop participants will know the basic steps, rules, and roles of the process, have a chance to practice using the method, and have some discussion of real-life examples. You will be able to participate effectively in a meeting using this system, but you may not yet be ready to facilitate. Your questions about your own organisation(s) will be welcome.

These classes may also be delivered in house to your team, or bespoke on a date convenient to your company or group.
