Miki Kashtan: Exiting the Either/Or Trap - Decision Making Beyond Consensus and Command / Control


Are long, drawn-out consensus processes the only alternative to a rigid, hierarchical decision making model that reinforces unhealthy power dynamics? Trainer, facilitator and writer Miki Kashtan offers her powerful framework of Convergent Facilitation, which is a model of group decision making that is both efficient and ensures that all voices are heard.

This event, recorded May 11th, 2020, is part of the "Where Do We Go From Here" speaker series hosted by the East Point Peace Academy. Over the next few months, we will hear from activists, organizers, scholars and trainers about how movements can respond to these times, and how to adjust moving forward. Other speakers include George Lakey, Erica Chenoweth, Susan Burton, Lynice Pinkard and more.

Hi there.

I bet you've seen some great "films for action" that aren't in our library yet. 

Why not add that documentary or video directly to our library? Half of our best content was added by members. Submissions just need to be non-fiction, embeddable (like from Youtube or Vimeo), and related to activism or changing the world in some way. 

Here are some more tips on adding videos. We'd love you to become a regular contributor!
