  • Another key element to effective group dynamics that you can introduce to participants is how to give and receive feedback .

  • 5. What is Consensus?
    • Consensus is a process of thinking through particular ideas or issues and reaching a point when a group is able to make appropriate decisions and plans. It provides an opportunity to develop commitment by all parties involved through quality dialogue and forming a group connection.

  • 6. Consensus is not…
    • A total agreement on all ideas or issues
    • A win for some and a loss for others
    • Settling for the lowest common denominator or meaningless ideas
    • A method of persuasion and selling ideas
    11/29/11 WITNESS.org
  • 7. To Build Consensus…
    • Everyone involved must be willing to form a consensus
    • There should be a purpose for the formation of a consensus or a question to consider
    • Everyone must be included in the dialogue (i.e., participants, facilitators, group organizers, resource persons)
    • All ideas must be respected and heard
    • Requires suspending judgement and assumptions in order to create room for new ideas to emerge
