Steps in Consensus Decision-Making
Set a meeting time and location that is convenient and comfortable for everyone. Explain the process and goals. Go around the room and let everyone share their ideas and opinions. Capture them where everyone can see them. Once everyone has had a voice, allow for discussion and feedback. Brainstorm and vet alternatives and address concerns. Encourage quieter people to participate. Periodically test for consensus.
