Workshop Description: A key role of the team leader is to guide the team in the process on reaching general agreement on (consensus) and support of (buy-in) important decisions. Even when all members do not agree that a particular decision is the best way to go, the team leader can receive commitment from all members to support the decision 100%. Effective team leaders prefer their teams to reach consensus using a balanced and open process, since decisions reached in this manner generally receive a higher level of support than do decisions made without consensus.

In this session participants will:

  • Learn about team synergy.
  • Learn the difference between consensus and buy-in.
  • Practice strategies and techniques for reaching consensus and buy-in.
  • Practice one-on-one buy-in.
  • Learn about a conflict resolution process that can be used for reaching consensus.
