Consensus & Facilitation Resources
Tree Bressen’s website has dozens of free articles, handouts, etc. on doing good process in “horizontal” groups (groups with a primarily egalitarian orientation).
Group facilitation is an art and a skill, a science and an intuition. From keeping discussions on track to tuning into group energy, a gifted facilitator serves the group through focusing on the process as well as the content.
Are your group meetings productive and upbeat? Do you leave feeling energized and accomplish what you set out to do? Do the relationships in your organization feel vibrant and inspiring?
Don’t settle for meetings that are boring, frustrating, or less than constructive. If your group is challenged by lack of organization, inefficient use of time, “difficult” personalities, or other common problems, this site is for you. Or if you already know a lot about how to work together, but want assistance on a particular topic, check out the resources here. If you don’t see what you’re looking for, you are invited to get in touch to see what else may be available.
