As leaders, tired of the meeting after the meeting in the parking lot? Frustrated by the ‘after-meeting’ in the hallway? The primary goal of the session is how to use consensus decision-making, a cooperative, non-coercive form of decision-making in the setting of Jewish institutions and organizations.
This session with be the perfect mix of theory and practice. It will be interactive and draw upon the experiences of the participants and practitioners in the field. By the completion of this workshop, participants will know about how to use consensus decision-making and action steps toward its implementation in their home setting.
Some of the issues we will tackle include group dynamics, especially in Jewish settings, trust and respect, unity of purpose, self-empowerment, patience, commitment, majority rule and competition, cooperation and formal consensus.
