Introduction Jason Diceman & Simone Arsenault-May
Who’s Here?
What is Consensus?  Democratic form of group decision-making that works best in small groups (less than 15). Process: Creative and cooperative discussion of ideas and opinions. Goal:  Find the best solution that everyone can live with. Equal opportunity to participate.  Promote the growth of community and build trust.
What Consensus is Not  Not necessarily unanimous agreement with 100% enthusiastic satisfaction. Not voting on competing options (e.g. Robert’s Rules). Not debating or bargaining to win your view. Not going with the lowest common denominator. Silence interpreted as consent. Not just going along with ‘the leader’.
Your Definition Your group will create and agree upon your own working definition of consensus, and when and how other kinds of decision-making will be used e.g. voting, delegation.
Basic Steps of Consensus Introduction:  Presentation of issue to be addressed. Clarification:   Questions and information gathering. Dialogue:    Discussion of ideas and opinions towards the formation of a proposal. Address Concerns:    Ask for concerns with proposal and seek solutions. Call for Consensus:    Each member states their level of support for proposal. If lacking support, further dialogue is likely required. Option to use alternative decision-making (e.g. delegate, vote). Shelve the decision to be addressed at a later date.
Levels of Support
Using Alternative Decision-Making Conditions for using other forms of decision-making need to be determined in advance.  Participants should be sincerely seeking consensus, not sabotaging in order to force a vote. When the decision at hand is very subjective it might be better to delegate.  When urgent decisions are required it may be better to delegate.
Dialogue for Consensus  Role Playing Dialogue vs. Debate:  What should be our special lunch day menu?
Tips for an Efficient  Council Hard working and cooperative individuals Experienced meeting chair person Consistent use of a discussion email list (e.g. Yahoo Groups, Google Groups) Up-to-date documentation on the web(e.g. Google Sites, WikiSpaces.com) Simple web tools to help schedule meetings (e.g. Doodle.com, MeetingWizard.com)
Methods for Community Messages Email list  / e-newsletter Up-to-date website Take home letters Posters Bulletin Boards
Techniques for Community Engagement ‘One-window’ contacts  One person and set of contact details responsible for managing communication to and from the council Promotes consistency and group accountability Speak w/one voice - avoid conflicting messages Online Surveys (e.g. SurveyMonkey.com)
