Description of the Template and Guide
True consensus is something we value for its ability to unite a group around a particular decision. Too often, however, all we achieve is false consensus in which participants don’t share their concerns and the leader presumes to have everyone’s support. Later, however, the decision may come undone. Here’s how to avoid this and build real consensus.
This meeting agenda template can be used to create a stand-alone meeting dedicated to reaching consensus on a decision, or incorporated into longer meetings covering additional topics.
