The CODM Model for Facilitating Groups to Widespread Agreement
by Tim Hartnett
For any group or organization to function effectively, it must be able to make decisions well. Consensus-Oriented Decision-Making is the first book to offer groups (and group facilitators) a clear and efficient path togenerating widespread agreement while fostering full participation and true collaboration.
Poised to become the new standard for group facilitation, Consensus-Oriented Decision-Making combines:
- Deep insight into complex group dynamics
- Effective conflict resolution techniques
- Powerful communication skills.
Groups using this simple, step-by step approach experience increased cohesion and commitment and stronger relationships as a result of their successful cooperation.
Incorporating the principles of collaboration, inclusion, empathy, and open-mindedness, the CODM process encourages shared ownership of group decisions. The method can be used in any group situation, regardless of whether the final decision-making power rests with a single person or team, a vote of members, or unanimity.
Business, government, non-profit, social and community organizations can all benefit from Consensus-Oriented Decision-Making. Whether you are a designated facilitator or an active participant, understanding this powerfulframework will help you contribute to the success of your group through achieving maximum participation and efficiency, a clearer decision-making process, better decisions, and improved group dynamics.
