I feel so gratified this morning to wake up to so many wonderful responses to the question about one person “blocking” a decision and what to do about it. I read the question thinking, can I take this on again? Can I write the same explanation again? And again. Can I look for an old message and recycle it? No, each new question exists in a unique universe and deserves a new response. To my great satisfaction and pleasure, the following responses were wonderful. Muriel, David, Dick, and Patti (so far) supported all the reasoning that sociocracy presents and presented ways to work through the objection rather than treat it as a veto and override it. And even more than supporting, Dick, in particular, explained clearly how to use that reasoning to resolve objections. And why it is important to do it — harmony, yes, but also intelligence. Look for information. Test options. Analyze results. Moving forward is a method of getting more information. To test the hypothesis. Collect evidence to see if the decision produces the results everyone else expects. It’s a changing world. Decisions are bullet points in a process of change, not boulders establishing permanent boundaries that only a hundred-year war can change. So thank you to everyone for making my day!
