I developed Convergent Facilitation through trial and error in hundreds of situations I facilitated. I then wrote the book The Highest Common Denominator: Using Convergent Facilitation to Reach Breakthrough Collaborative Decisions, which includes an entire chapter based on the case study of the most extensive application of Convergent Facilitation to date. I taught Convergent Facilitation for several years, and am now happy as a clam that there are enough people who can use Convergent Facilitation as well as teach it so that I can focus my energy elsewhere. The only applications I myself am willing to take are those bringing together multi-stakeholder groups with the intention to address one of the world’s major crises: energy and climate, health, food sovereignty, global disparities and violence, and impending collapse. For everything else, I personally trust any one of the facilitators featured on this website.
