For all you/us collective nerdlings!!

For any group or organization to function effectively, it must be able to make decisions well. Consensus-Oriented Decision-Making is the first book to offer groups (and group facilitators) a clear and efficient path to generating widespread agreement while fostering full participation and true collaboration.

Poised to become the new standard for group facilitation, this book combines:

* Deep insight into complex group dynamics
* Effective conflict resolution techniques
* Powerful communication skills

Groups using this simple, step-by-step approach experience increased cohesion and commitment and stronger relationships as a result of their successful cooperation.

Incorporating the principles of collaboration, inclusion, empathy, and open-mindedness, the consensus-oriented decision-making (CODM) process encourages shared ownership of group decisions. The method can be used in any group situation, regardless of whether the final decision-making power rests with a single person or team, a vote of members, or unanimity.

Whether you are a designated facilitator or an active participant, understanding this framework will help you contribute to the success of your group by achieving maximum participation and efficiency, a clearer decision-making process, better decisions, and improved group dynamics.
