Consensus Building

Leaders at all levels need to be skilled at the art of developing consensus. Short of giving direct orders, this is how all things get done - the group agrees that it is the right thing to do. But how? How do leaders ensure that consensus is built in a way that everyone finds their needs satisfied, they become committed and the job still gets done?

At GWLI, we demonstrate consensus building in all that we do. We have the skills and tools that will help you and your organization discover the consensus you already have, even when you don't recognize it. We also have the resources and the expertise to help you and your organization develop powerful consensus that you may not have yet.

We will help you:

  • Understanding what consensus is, and what it is not.

  • Perceive and break through the barriers to building consensus.

  • Understand win /win, win / lose approaches - which one when?

  • Understand "mutual gain" approach: everyone gains something, but not at the expense of others.

  • Put consensus into action: operationalizing consensus - commitment + action.

  • Retrieve consensus: when the "warm fuzzy" developed in the conference room meets the brutal reality of the real world.

We will tailor our programs to meet your needs.
