HOW'S YOUR PROCESS COMMITTEE DOING? Rod Sandelin asked this question some time ago. Since then I have written a draft or two, asked members and ex-members to read it, and used their responses to shap...

Our process team came as a result of a retreat with Laird. Our facilitation team was doing most of these tasks, plus other organizaitonal work. We create two new teams: process and steering, so as to...

to group any, former cohousing more Rob raises an important point. However, I think that you CAN find ways to work on conflict and process stuff with BOTH types of people together, if you frame it ri...

Would some of you be willing to tell how your Process Committee is working. In my opinion, our Process Committee has been having difficulty. I have been wondering if the charter needs to be more focu...

At Belfast Cohousing & Ecovillage, we need to make a decision about taking down a tree. We all love the tree, and we intended to keep it, but our site plan didn't plan well for it and it ended up in...

Here's another false dichotomy: deal I see a presumption here that all process is the same, and that process and outcomes are disconnected from each other. If you follow a good process, then you'll h...

I think Sharon you misunderstand me. I don't say individuals do not have self interests, or should give up their self interest, I say, if the group process I call consensus is to function well, the i...

I certainly agree that there is a difference between process and content. And that the process you choose can influence or even pre-determine the outcome. But ... Do you try to tailor your process to...

Elizabeth argued (I think) that the good of the group is not a requirement for consensus. Let me put this another way, a group of people that only consider, and primarily negotiate from their own int...

Hi Sharon, thanks for your response. I agree that how people feel about each other is vastly more important than any communication skills that might be learned in a workshop. However, I have seen min...

For your group I would recommend hiring a local outside family counselor who has training as a mediator. The advantage of this is that it solves the issues NOW, and it is really important to have suc...

A person who hijacks the group process does so by deliberately using a cooperative process in a non-cooperative way, with the intent to serve themselves. If I want French fries for dinner, then I blo...

Let me give two examples. Over time, I have begun to realize that our community often gets into trouble when we skip a process step we previously agreed upon. The key here I think is "agreed upon"....

We had a member who was our project manager, and it was extremely problematic. Some members of the group will project power and conspiracy on even with the most sensitive manager. It's nice if the p...

Don and others interested: I'd go even farther without going as far. So-called "primitive" societies such as the pre-contact Polynesians and some Native American groups had the issue of how to get al...

One more point about common values and the consensus process. If there is ever 1 person who seems to be the lone voice against something - i.e., the 'blocker', the facilitator should ask the person t...

I agree with all of Mr Wolf's remarks about a fall-back. We have a similar approach at Cornerstone (Cambridge, MA); we call it the escape hatch. But the super-majority is 75%, and can be sought after...
