Course Description: The purpose of this course is to introduce you to a proven method for group problem-solving and decision-making. This method is applicable in any setting where groups need work together to make collective decisions or plans. This approach uses tools to help foster collaboration in decision-making and action-planning – among individuals, organizations or communities.

This method has many benefits:

  • Provides an environment to hear all voices and apply group wisdom
  • Recognizes and honors contributions of all
  • Pools individual contributions into larger more informative patterns
  • Fosters strategic thinking that leverages the group wisdom and creativity
  • Welcomes diversity while minimizing polarization and conflict
  • Promotes high levels of group ownership for the resulting plan

At the completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Create a safe environment for team members to openly contribute and make consensus-based decisions
  • Apply collaborative problem-solving and decision-making techniques
  • Select and apply appropriate tools when participating in a team problem-solving activity
  • Reach consensus and focus on areas of shared agreement rather than get stuck on areas of disagreement
  • Achieve greater effectiveness and synergy among problem-solving teams
