Instructions

Before

Setting: none

Pre-Work Required: none

Type of Facilitator-Client Relationship: A great deal of trust is needed.

During

Establish - or revisit vision statement standards:
a. Ask what standards/elements of a vision statement will be acceptable.
b. Ask for the group's definition of consensus; maybe it's too narrow - not everyone has to *love* the decision.

After

Follow-Up Required: follow through on the step of the process

Usual or Expected Outcomes: movement toward a consensus

Potential pitfalls: The group is too polarized and a meditation strategy may be required.
