 +###What it is? 
 +Consensus means that when a decision is reached no one feels that their input has been misinterpreted or not given sufficient attention. It is not a vote of unanimity or of agreement. Its goal is that each person thinks that the decision made is the best one. This usually happens because collective consciousness,​ when it works, provides better solutions than those that come from isolated individuals.
  
-Hemos de tener en cuenta que las decisiones pueden ser+All participants contribute ideas and encourage the use of each other'​s resources and opinions. Difference of opinion is taken as something positive and not as an obstacle. In the end, everyone takes part in the decision-making process.
  
 +Consensus requires more time and skill on the part of participants,​ but there are many resources to make a decision and commit to it. Participants may accept a decision even if they disagree, but recognize that it responds to the needs of the group and allows the group to move forward with it and support it. 
  
-[[ CONSENSO - CONSENSUS ​]+###How to use it 
-fuente: http://www.siervasdesanjose.org/​servicios/​recursos/​file/​Consenso.pdf+For complicated topics that require more time for discussion / approximation,​ the [FORUM](https://forum.fair.coop) is proposed as a preliminary tool that helps to present points of view without urgency, debate, bring positions closer together, etc. When the proposal is mature, it is when it is taken to an assembly for consensus.
  
 +###Why do we need consensus?
 +Consensus decision making gathers the experiences of the whole group.
  
-QUÉ ES? | what it is? 
- 
-El consenso consiste en que, cuando se llega a una decisión, nadie siente que su aporte ha sido mal interpretado o no se le ha prestado la suficiente atención. No es un voto de unanimidad o de estar todas de acuerdo. Es de desear que cada persona piense que la decisión tomada es la mejor. Esto suele suceder porque la conciencia colectiva, cuando funciona, aporta mejores soluciones que las que vienen de los individuos aislados. Todas las participantes aportan ideas y animan a que se utilicen los recursos y opiniones de las demás. Lo diferente se toma como algo positivo y no como un obstáculo. Al final todas toman parte de la decisión. El consenso exige más tiempo y habilidad por parte de los miembros, pero cuenta con muchos recursos para llegar a tomar una decisión y comprometerse con ella. Las participantes pueden aceptar una decisión aunque no estén de acuerdo, pero reconocen que responde a las necesidades del grupo y permiten que el grupo siga adelante con ella y la apoyan. ​

-CÓMO UTILIZARLO | HOW TO USE IT 
- 
-Para temas complicados que requieran de más tiempo de discusión / aproximación,​ se propone el FORUM 
-https://​forum.fair.coop/​ como una herramienta previa que ayuda a exponer puntos de vista sin urgencias, debatir, acercar posiciones, etc. Cuando la propuesta está madura es cuando se lleva a asamblea para consenso.

- 
- 
- 
-POR QUÉ UTILIZARLO? | WHY DO WE USE CONSENSUS? 
- 
-El consenso recoge las experiencias de todo el grupo. 
-El consenso es un medio de recoger el conocimiento colectivo del grupo para llegar a la decisión que sea más favorable y posible. ​ 
- 
-El consenso promueve las relaciones interpersonales. 
-Requiere tiempo y esfuerzo, comunicación sincera y voluntad de confiar en las demás; compartir ideas y sentimientos,​ y escucha atenta. Trabajando juntos para clarificar ideas y propuestas, los miembros fomentan la confianza mutua y la capacidad de comunicación. Al potenciar el liderazgo compartido y la participación,​ los miembros de un grupo están en disposición de llegar a la mejor decisión. La sinergia que surge al elaborar acuerdos conjuntamente,​ ayuda a crear un fuerte sentido de compromiso con el grupo y con su misión, y un sentido de pertenencia y de compromiso entre los miembros. ​ 
- 
-El consenso lleva a hacer lo que sea mejor para el bien común. 
-El elemento clave para que el consenso funcione bien es un compromiso por parte de cada individuo de aceptar lo que sea de mayor interés para el grupo. Esto lleva a considerar otros intereses más allá de los propios. 
- 
-Los acuerdos por consenso se ponen en práctica con más facilidad 
-Los acuerdos por consenso tienen fuerza de ejecución en sí mismos ya que el consenso significa que cada miembro ha dado su consentimiento para que el acuerdo adquiera vigencia, y el no seguirlo pone en peligro el sentido de pertenencia al grupo. Si se desea fuertemente la relación comunitaria,​ entonces las decisiones tomadas por el grupo en consenso también tendrán fuerza. ​

-Consensus decision making gathers the experiences of the whole group. 
 Consensus is a means of collecting the knowledge of the group in order to arrive at the decision that is both most favorable and within the limits of the possible. ​ Consensus is a means of collecting the knowledge of the group in order to arrive at the decision that is both most favorable and within the limits of the possible. ​
  
 Consensus promotes interpersonal relationships. Consensus promotes interpersonal relationships.
-It requires time and effort, sincere communication,​ and a willingness to trust others; sharing ideas and feelings; and listening attentively. Working together to clarify ideas and proposals, members build mutual trust and communication skills. By fostering shared leadership and participation,​ members of a group are in a position to reach the best decision.

-ETAPAS +Consensus agreements are more easily implemented.
-1.- diálogo: ESTA ETAPA SE PUEDE REALIZAR EN EL FORO https://​forum.fair.coop/​  +
-El grupo se reúne para tratar ampliamente un tema. Se comparten con libertad pensamientos,​ opiniones, sentimientos,​ ideas y se reacciona ante los aportes de las demás. Esto es esencial en el consenso. En esta etapa se puede cambiar de opinión al escuchar otros aportes.+
  
-2.- propuestas. CUANDO LA PROPUESTA ESTÁ MADURA SUFICIENTEMENTE +Consensus agreements have implementing force in themselves because consensus means that each member has given its consent for the agreement to take effect, and failure to follow it jeopardizes the sense of belonging to the groupIf community relationship is strongly desiredthen the decisions taken by the group in consensus will also have force
-Sucede ​la del diálogo. Es aquí donde una buena moderadora puede ser muy valiosa ya que puede ayudar al grupo a buscar aspectos de común entendimiento y acuerdo, ponerlos de realce y resumirlos para el grupo. Al lograr una propuesta, fruto del diálogose pone por escrito+
  
-3.- modificación. +###Phases 
-Es el momento en el que la propuesta a la que se ha llegado como síntesis de los aportes de todas se pone a prueba y se modifica para que responda a las necesidades del grupo. En algunos casos esto se hace en la misma reunión: se añaden cosas a la  propuesta provisional o se modifica la forma de estar redactada. En otros casos esto se hace después de la reunión, una vez que se haya implementado y se tenga mayor conocimiento;​ después de la experiencia se revisa la decisión y se hacen los cambios necesarios basados en la nueva información obtenida. En grupos más  numerosos, un pequeño grupo puede ocuparse de tratar la información obtenida, hacer propuestas y, después de un tiempo presentar una nueva propuesta para su modificación.  +1.- **dialogue**. THIS STAGE CAN BE DONE IN THE [FORUM](https://​forum.fair.coop/​)

-ETAPAS +
-1.- dialogueTHIS STAGE CAN BE DONE IN THE FORUM https://​forum.fair.coop/ ​+
 The group meets to discuss a topic at length. Thoughts, opinions, feelings, ideas are freely shared and the contributions of others are reacted to. This is essential in consensus. At this stage you can change your mind by listening to other contributions. The group meets to discuss a topic at length.

-3.- modification.+3.- **modification**
 This is the moment when the proposal that has been arrived at as a synthesis of everyone'​s contributions is tested and modified in order to respond to the needs of the group. In some cases this is done at the same meeting: things are added to the provisional proposal or the way it is worded is changed. In other cases, this is done after the meeting, once it has been implemented and is better known; after the experience, the decision is reviewed, and the necessary changes are made based on the new information obtained. In larger groups, a small group can deal with the information obtained, make proposals and, after a while, submit a new proposal for modification. This is the moment when the proposal that has been arrived at as a synthesis of everyone'​s contributions is tested and modified in order to respond to the needs of the group.

-Prácticas positivas en la búsqueda de consenso: +
- +
-Capacidad de escucha  +
-Poner atención para comprender a la otra persona. Evitar interrumpir. En todo caso pedir aclaraciones o hacer preguntas que ayuden a comprender el asunto.  +
- +
-Centrarse en soluciones  +
-Es muy importante no limitarse a criticar, sino sugerir soluciones e ideas para resolver las situaciones y asegurarse de que el problema queda expresado con la mayor claridad posible antes de buscar soluciones.  +
- +
-Estar abiertas a los resultados  +
-Tratar de mirar de forma imparcial y con igualdad los pros y contras de todas las ideas. Estar abiertas a los cambios y modificaciones grupales. No centrarnos sólo en las propias ideas y defenderlas por encima de todo. En el consenso se busca hacer un proceso que nos lleve a tomar un acuerdo común, no convencer a los demás.  +
- +
-Ser concretas +
-Pensar en lo que se va a decir antes de decirlo y ser breves. No mezclar; no repetir lo que ya han dicho otras personas. USO DEMOCRÁTICO DEL TURNO DE PALABRA. +
- +
-Ser pacientes  +
-Algunas personas pueden necesitar más tiempo o más información que otras para comprender o asimilar. El consenso NO es un proceso rápido de toma de decisiones. Debemos estar dispuestas a disponer del tiempo que se necesite. +
->>>​ El Foro podría ser espacio de debate de un tema que requiera tiempo para el consenso >>>​ +
- +
-Ser humildes +
-Estar dispuestas a aceptar lo que nos pueda enseñar el grupo, aunque seamos personas expertas en lo que se está tratando. +
- +
-Reconocer los propios sentimientos y compartirlos cuando sea necesario  +
-Expresar si nos sentimos descontentas o incómodas y procurar identificar las causas.  +
- +
-Tener visión de futuro  +
-Muchas decisiones y propuestas sirven para adquirir experiencia en cosas que nunca habíamos hecho. Si no funcionan, después de un tiempo se pueden cambiar.  +
- +
-Saber cuando una decisión tomada debe dejarse +
-El grupo puede cambiar decisiones tomadas después de un tiempo. Aferrarse a pequeños detalles no ayuda: tenemos que dejar que las decisiones sigan su curso y después comprobar si es necesario cambiarlas.  +
- +
-Dar razones de la forma de pensar +
-Cuando expresemos una opinión, proporcionar las razones que nos llevan a pensar de esa determinada manera (así aportaremos una valiosa información). Y también debemos estar abiertas a los cuestionamientos y comentarios sobre las propias opiniones. +
- +
-Intervenir para ayudar al grupo +
-Aunque no se sea la moderadora, si se nota que algo no va bien, se debe decir al grupo lo que se percibe que está pasando. Por ejemplo: “Parece que cuando empezamos a tratar sobre tal asunto percibo que hay ciertas reacciones de indignación. ¿Hay alguien que perciba lo mismo que yo? ¿Podemos abordar esto para ver qué hay detrás?​” +
- +
-Preparar el trabajo +
-Implicarse activamente en la búsqueda. Preparar la reunión. Reflexionar sobre lo que se va a tratar. Leer con detenimiento todo lo que se haya dado y reflexionar sobre ello antes de la reunión.  +
- +
- +
-Positive practices in consensus building+
- +
-Ability to listen ​+
 Pay attention so as to understand the other person. Avoid interrupting. In any case, ask for clarification or questions to help you understand the issue. ​ Pay attention so as to understand the other person. Avoid interrupting.

 It is very important not just to criticize, but to suggest solutions and ideas to resolve situations and to make sure that the problem is expressed as clearly as possible before seeking solutions. ​ It is very important not just to criticize, but to suggest solutions and ideas to resolve situations and to make sure that the problem is expressed as clearly as possible before seeking solutions. ​

 Try to look at the pros and cons of all ideas fairly and equally. Be open to group changes and modifications. Do not focus only on your own ideas and defend them above all else.

 Even if you are not the moderator, if you notice that something is not right, tell the group what you perceive is happening.

-1) No añadir ningún participante a un grupo sin consultar primero. +

-2) Evitar juzgar a quien decida salir del grupo.  +
-Todo el mundo puede tener motivos para salir de dichos grupos en un momento dado; partamos de la base que su objetivo no ha sido molestar u ofender a los demás. +

-4) Si se plantea una pregunta al grupo y la respuesta es sólo para nosotros, solicitemos las respuestas por mensaje privado, añadiendo al final una frase de este tipo: “para no molestar a todo el grupo, quien quiera puede contestarme por mensaje privado. Gracias”. De esta forma evitamos que por cada pregunta planteada se sucedan 25 respuestas». +

-A veces es cierto que un silencio dice más que muchas palabras, pero en la era de la inmediatez somos demasiado sensibles a la velocidad de respuesta. Hay muchas personas que leen los mensajes una vez al día, o que piensan que la pregunta no es para ellos, o que necesitan tomarse su tiempo… +
