@appleseed My formal training in facilitation was through RoundSky in the Colllab system, which I've found to be pretty useful: https://www.roundskysolutions.com/introduction-to-collab/
@appleseed My partner's organization uses the approach described in Food Not Bombs co-founder C.T. Butler's book with Amy Rothstein: http://www.consensus.net/pdf/consensus.pdf
In my experience, it is good to role play decision-making procedures several times to get used to the flow and think about how to deal with difficulties.
@appleseed Hey Zac, this workshop outline seems like a good starting point for a group workshop on #consensus. (You would want to adapt it)
I have used an activity called #brokensquares that can be very useful for recognizing individual and group dynamics. Another thought is to practice a consensus technique, then play #Coopoly, taking time to use consensus decision-making any time the group has to answer a question.
