Wink Baha'i Consultation...

This is the procedure for Bahá'í consultation:

establish the full facts;
decide on the principles to be applied;
discuss the matter;
make a decision.
Each of these steps is preceded by prayer, both to invoke the help of God and to remind those consulting of what their attitude should be. If problems arise during the consultation, prayers are said to resolve the difficulties. Other groups of a spiritual nature might like to adopt this approach.
"True consultation is spiritual conference in the attitude and atmosphere of love."



I wanted to start a new thread on a problem resolving technique that Baha'is use and ask if anyone has employed it using the actual steps outlined above?

And whether anyone has found it a useful way to improve their lives?

I have used this with a variety of modifications in many
business environments. In arenas not of Baha'i Faith, the
relevant principles can be ethics, government policies,
stratigic direction based on the public good.

The full facts include the broad scope of impact and the
depth of technical support details for engineering design and
project management issues.

Input is solicited from all decision making partners, contractors,
and affected government agencies. Often additional requirements
are brought forth that may even require government legislative
attention. I also try to bring forth to the discussions some
possible solutions to the various conflicting agenda items.
