How to Reach a Consensus/Agreement Need Name and Divided up Roles • In your group you need to pick a name and divide up roles. • Brainstorm-Have everyone list ideas. Don’t evaluate. Get into the habit of having everyone participate. • Evaluate: Have each person choose their two top name choices. Reduce the list to four or less. • Discuss, Don’t vote: Ask each person to give a pro and con of the name. Use the pro/con discussion to reduce the list to 2 names. • Do a pro/con discussion on the remaining two names to reduce it the team’s name. • Decide: Reach an agreement by voting if needed.
