Our friends at Seeds for Change have compiled their excellent briefings on consensus decision-making into one place – a new book on consensus and facilitation: A Consensus Handbook – Co-operative decision-making for activists, co-ops and communities
Here’s what they say about it:
After decades of facilitating, years of planning, months of hard work and days of laying out and proofing, the Seeds for Change book on consensus and facilitation is (nearly) here!
We’ve put a PDF of the book on our website for you to have a look at and if you want, you can get a hard copy (£3.50+p&p) by the end of April (details on how to get it on our website). We’re selling the book at a price which just covers printing costs to make it as accessible as possible – so please help us to spread the word about it… Thank you for all the help so far, and we hope you enjoy the book!
We’ve been promised a review copy, so once it’s in print (30th April) we’ll let you know what we think of it here on the blog. If you download and read the pdf in the meantime and want to share your thoughts, please do – we’re happy to host them here!
A certain iron lady once said” consensus is when one abandons ones beliefs and principles” ding dong!
Reblogged this on Naveed Chaudhri and commented:
I bought a copy of this book back in May and can certainly recommend it. As well as being a practical and interesting guide to consensus decision-making, its detailed facilitation tips are of great value to anyone wanting to improve their facilitation skills – one of the best collections of these I’ve seen, in fact.
