• help your group make time-efficient decisions?
• turn creative differences into an advantage?
• eliminate political struggle?
• give everyone a voice?
Formal Consensus is a system that a group can use to make decisions.
It offers a quick way to get the best creative decision a group can invent.
It does not require unanimous agreement, and it turns conflict into a resource.
Formal Consensus is used by businesses, intentional communities and activist groups on several continents.
By the end of the day participants will know the basic steps, rules, and roles of the Formal Consensus process, have a chance to practice using the method, and have some discussion of real-life examples. Your questions about your own organisation(s) will be welcome.

Nathaniel White trained with the author of the Formal Consensus manual, C.T. Butler, in 1997. He uses the method in his paid and voluntary work, and contributed to the most recent version of the manual. Nathaniel says:
"Formal Consensus is one of the two best decision-making systems I've found for drawing out the creative intelligence of a group. It allows its 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 Formal Consensus, many of those groups can't easily pass on what they do because they have skills -- not a system."
