  2. Decision Making Models • Command - One Person Decides with

    No Involvement • Consult - Subgroup Decides with Input from Group • Vote - Group Decides Through Majority Rules • Consensus - Everyone Must Agree https://dnr.wi.gov/topic/ForestManagement/documents/CooperatingForestersMeeting2016/CrucialConversa tionsWorksheet.pdf
  3. Understanding Communication - Drilling Down 1. I say what I

    want 2. What I actually want 3. What I actually need
  4. Friend or Foe?

  5. Activity • I have M&M’s and I’m going to offer

    you some. • If you agree, we keep the split. If you disagree, we get nothing.
  6. Normal Results • Mean: 60% - 40% • Mode: 50%-50%

    • About 35% is the Higher End of Commonly Rejected Amounts • Size of the Stake Does Not Matter https://www.fte.org/teachers/teacher-resources/lesson-plans/is-capitalism-good-for-the-poor-2/the-ultimatu m-game/ https://www0.gsb.columbia.edu/mygsb/faculty/research/pubfiles/3046/SSRN-id1131083.pdf

    • 50%-75% • Above 75%
  8. We are a $6 Team • What does this mean?

    (Out of $10, we will offer our team $6) • How do we implement it? • Who is responsible?
  9. Steps to Consensus 1. What do we need to talk

    about (or are avoiding)? 2. Start with Heart (Find a Common Purpose) 3. Make It Safe (Avoid Silence or Violence) 4. Know my Role (Not a Victim, Villain or Helpless) 5. Tell my Facts as a Story (I have noticed that…) 6. Listen to Their Story 7. Decide & Follow Up https://dnr.wi.gov/topic/ForestManagement/documents/CooperatingForestersMeeting2016/CrucialConversa tionsWorksheet.pdf

    was the Original Non-Common Purposes? • How did we reframe it to a Common Purpose? • Did we make it safe? • Did I know my role? ◦ What was the victim story? ◦ What was the villain story? ◦ What was the helpless story?
