Working cooperatively with a group requires a set of skills and attitudes.
For a group to be successful using cooperative decision making, the skills
have to be learned and practiced. Some people do not have a level of skill
yet in order to be entirely successful and need extra training and teaching
work. So sometimes people who make things difficult are simply showing their
need for more cooperative skill training. How do they get this in your
group? This is particularly difficult in forming groups which turn over
membership regularly. Each new member has a different level of exposure and
skill in working cooperatively. It is to your groups advantage to make some
kind of baseline training handout in cooperative process. If its any help,
there are some materials I created about consensus you are welcome to lift
and modify. They can be found at.
