Making Decisions by Consensus

DOWNLOAD Guidelines for consensus building Be respectful and trust each other.  Don’t be afraid to express your ideas and opinions. Don’t assume that someone must win and someone must lose.  Look for the most acceptable solution for everyone. Think before you speak, listen before you object.  Listen to others’ reactions, and consider them carefully before pressing  your point. Remember that the ideal behind consensus is empowering versus overpowering, agreement versus majorities/minorities.   What is consensus decision making? Consensus is a decision­making process that works creatively to include all the people making the decision. Instead of simply voting for an item, and letting the majority of the group get their way, the group is committed to finding solutions that everyone can live with. This ensures that everyone’s opinions,  ideas and reservations are taken into account. But consensus is more than just a compromise. It is a process that can result in surprising and creative solutions ­ often better than the original suggestions. At the heart of consensus is a respectful dialogue between equals, helping groups to work together to meet both the individuals’ and the group’s needs. It’s about how to work with each other rather than “for” or “against” each other. Making decisions by consensus is based on trust and openness – this means learning to openly express both…
