Workshops are taught by Nathaniel White or one of our other professional facilitators. Nathaniel White trained with the author of the Formal Consensus manual, C.T. Butler, in 1997, and contributed to the most recent version of the manual. Nathaniel has also trained with and is currently mentored by internationally-known Sociocratic Consultant John Buck. Nathaniel says:
“Formal Consensus and Sociocratic Consent are the two best decision-making systems I’ve found for drawing out the creative intelligence of a group. They allow participants to empower themselves, to increase the value of diverse group perspectives, to draw out (rather than suppress) unconscious information, and to create shared ownership of decisions (and thus more commitment to effective execution) among the full group. Although I have seen very skilled consensus decision-making in groups that do not use these systems, many of those groups can’t easily pass on what they do because they have skills — not a system.”
