Sociocracy UK

How-to, community & developing Collaborative Governance in the UK

Forum for follow-on to the Workshop at Newbold House, Forres, Scotland April 2012

Following is a copy of email correspondence between one of the participants and John Buck

Hi - you're welcome! I enjoyed myself. 

If you have a group that knows what an objection is, then you can have a speedy consent round by saying something like, "Checking for consent, anyone have any big problem with this proposal?" You wait for 4 or 5 seconds. If no one pipes up, you said, "I don't hear any squawks. So, that's our decision."  
If your crew is not familiar with consent decision making, you have to train them: "Rather than going around to each person to check for objections, I'm simply going to ask for any objections. After I ask that question, please check in with your body to see if you are rather uncomfortable. If so, etc............
In the practice circle, let us know how it goes with your groups.


- John

HI John, 
thanks for the 3 day intensive. 
A quick question which only occurs to me now - 
I interact with several online / virtual communities. How do you do the eye check in a round - is it more of a feeling sense? if there's not video. 
cheers
