Check In

Time frame:
Ongoing usage
Complexity: 1/5

Background & Purpose

Check-ins are serving the need to put aside other thoughts and feelings, which are not directly concerned with the objective of the meeting by letting participants know of other dynamics that may influence how we show up.

The check-in is simple: during tactical and governance meetings a question is asked, in our organization it usually revolves around the question of “How did you come to this meeting today?”. This question asks you to look at how you feel, how you got here, what is affecting you, and your overall wellbeing. Beginning a meeting in this manner allows each person to ground themselves in the present. It is a powerful way to start any meeting and makes for increased communication.

Consensus Decision-Making (color cards)

Consensus Decision-Making (color cards)

Time frame:
Ongoing usage
Punctual usage
Complexity: 3/5
More info: http://www.mosaic-commons.org/colorcards

Background & Purpose

Consensus decision making is a creative and dynamic way of reaching agreement among all members of a group. Instead of simply voting for an item and having the majority of the group getting their way, a group using consensus is committed to finding solutions that everyone actively supports, or can live with.
Colored cards can be used as a tool for reaching consensus, and to help organize discussions.
Green = agree, yellow = there is some unclarities, orange = serious reservations, red = veto, blue = neutral. Every participant gets a set of cards.
