CONSENSUS SEEKER

Consensus seekers for untangling conflicting situations

Are you as an organization blocked in a conflictual situation? As consensus seekers, we are happy to help you unravel this situation and get out of the deadlock. We do this by mapping out the perspectives and interests of the various parties, how they interact and what dynamics prevail. In this process, we first look for the underlying hidden beliefs of the parties involved and reveal the causes that lie at the root of the conflictual situation. We do this through in-depth interviews with the parties involved, in which we talk to people in confidence, without judgment or bias. We then also come on-site to observe how past choices and current practices have made the situation into what it is. We then place the situation within the larger context, which is an important step in transcending the boundaries of the conflictual situation. Through feedback sessions with the various parties, we provide insight into everything that has surfaced in this process. Finally, we guide your organization to a sustainable and supported solution by challenging the status quo together, broadening the perspectives and looking for a win-win for all parties. We further translate this into a tactical plan. As external consensus seekers, we ensure that contradictions can be overcome and that a shared 'third alternative' can be achieved.

Case Study: In a healthcare department in a hospital, there was a latent discontent that was leading to a negative impact on operations and a failure to find the right people. The challenge was to disentangle this situation. From a wide range of in-depth interviews, we created an overall picture on the situation that was acknowledged by all people involved. Based on this picture we guided the organization along the healthcare side, the medical side and with the involvement of the directorate to gradually get out of the deadlock. In doing so, we ensured that the managers were able to take up their role in this process and embed the supported solution in the department.
