Have you ever worked with a group who struggles to make decisions? They leave meetings frustrated, drained, or at the very least without agreement on a path forward. Does the prospect of participating in their next gathering even leave you with a sense of unease? There’s a tool for that!
Introducing the Consensus Workshop. In this interactive session you will learn how to use a method with a 40 plus year track record of success in helping groups come to consensus in a short period of time. You’ll leave the session with new ideas on how to facilitate group decision-making in a way that all members feel their ideas have been heard and where they can support the group’s decision.

Can't make it this month?
We meet approximately every month, either the second or third Wednesday of the month. So if you can't make it this month, hopefully we'll see you at the next meetup. Also, if you have an idea, game, workshop, or story to share with the group, then please contact the organizer to setup a presentation for a future meeting.
