{Our} Sustainworthying Foundations and Guidances Lists
Don’t forget that we need to be proactively-familiar with the ‘No-Lose’ Method III of Cooperative Problem Solving[print it out from list C.below]

1.  The Busy Person’s Guide To Easier Movement [Frank Wildman]
“Go slowly;
Stay comfortable;
Carefully find and stay within your limits – (but do not ‘pump’ or otherwise ‘try to ‘test’ or ‘strengthen’ them;)
Rest frequently.”
———- 0527 St 29 04 17  jsdm ————
2. Reclaiming Vitality and Presence  [Charlotte Selver & Charles Brooks]
“We can not ‘teach’ you anything here – but we can help you to discover or re-discover what is already there, inside of you”.

3. Holistic Living [Patrick Pietroni]
Prince Charles: “Human nature is such that we are frequently prevented from seeing
that what is taken for today’s unorthodoxy is probably to be tomorrow’s convention”. 

He went on to say:“The whole imposing edificeof moden medicine,
for all its breathtaking successes, is like the celebrated Tower of Pisa, slightly off
 balance “. ————————-

4. Health Care Together [Johnston & Rifkin]
A foreword by ‘supervisor’ Fred Abatt concludes
(“) I have no hesitation in recommending the participatively cooperative learning methodology
for community education advancements (“).
page 10 also shows how to distinguish “Participativity” from Top-Down “Directivity”;
and the final section gives an overall Strategic Insight into key-implementations, sequences,
and ‘powers-that-be’ not-necessarily as all being “frogs choking the fountain”. ————————-

5. The Thinking Body – a study of the balancing forces of dynamic man [Mabel Todd, 1937 ].
The first great medical and humanitarian expertise work stepping “outside of the box”
to help us move ourself healthily as ‘flesh and blood’;
rather than or in essential addition to ‘efficiently cranking ourselves as strong speedy machines’.

6. Six Thinking Hats [E. de Bono]
Note how the Red hat “No fault” timeslot for participants to express their emotions
without having to “explain why”; but the Black ‘risks’ mode does need us to ‘scrutinise’ and justify..   E.de Bono has also written a work on peaceful-sustain-worthy-ing  called “Positive Revolution”  —————————-
7. How To Win Every Argument [Madsen Pirie]
Take one fallacy at a time.
The actual aim is to practice recognising others’ dishonest tricks and flaws,
for the overall co-friendly Purpose of building a Sustainworthy Civilisation. ———————————-

8.  Logic: Theory and Practice (Rennie & Girle)
‘Old’ but sound;
and the only book I know to include the (better-than-Venn-circles) rectangular-diagramming by Veitch-Karnaugh.

9.  Leader/Teacher/Parent/People Effectiveness Training [Thomas Gordon] :
‘Method III’ essential ‘No Lose’ Cooperative Problem Solving.
[print out our 5-steps guidance sheet – below]

10. Joining Together [Johnstone & Johnstone];  a long-established tertiary text
containing “cooperative-&-participative” enablements for the “Lifeplace”
as well as standard “directive-competitive” skilling.for “The Workplace”.

11. Wisdom of the Body Moving [Linda Hartley] :  the evolutionary history, and practical know-hows,
of our human-body’s movement-abilities, and “explorations” to increase our self-controllabilities. 

12.  [Everyday ‘Arts for Every-Body’ to strengthen our personal and mutual wellbeing].

13,  Effort [Laban & Lawrence]:  still the best all-round and balanced basis
for comprehending and improving human movement, both ‘economicly’ and ‘dramaticly’

‘Method III’
Friendly First-Resort ‘No-Lose’ Problem Solving :

[Those who shun this
(so-far voluntarily-honourable)
foundational progress

must remain enslaved to Competitive Adversary Law processes
and thereunder buy, turn to, and interminably await,

the costly and stultifyingly-slower ‘wheels’
of Adversary ‘cold-war’ stand-offs and Law Courts] .


{Method I the ‘bosses’ usually win; Method II the ‘underlings’ usually win}.

(With acknowledgement to Dr Thomas Gordon in
Leader Effectiveness Training
& other exponents e.g. Robert Bolton in People Skills).

Introduction: Please read through every part of the following lines
before attempting to judge,
or even think about, this methodology.

The guidance lines are of primary and ‘deal-breaking’ necessity.

Guidance (Rule) #1:  No-one can come with any competitive
or comparative advantage.

Each comes ’empty-handed’ or with a ‘blank slate’.
Each participates equally, patiently,

To allow improvement by suggestion, participants might agree to
a penultimate round,
so that any input may be clarified/& unanimously-approved;
before confirming every input “in ink” by the final round.  

Guidance #2:  Move in one direction around the round-table; 
at each step many patient rounds will usually give much

better results than merely one, two or three hurried rounds.
Each person gets equal
non-transferrable time per round. 

Guidance #3:  Silence is absolutely ‘Golden’,  
whilst each individual may be descending
deeper and deeper inside theirself,
until they have finally arrived at, and formulated into words, their own
latest-recognised real and important need.  

Guidance #4:  Keep going around at each step,
until each participant has clearly stated
in their own words what their ultimate need is. 

NB Everyone needs to include, at every step, advocacy-allowances for
Persons-Not-Present Who-May-Be-Affected By The Meeting’s Decisions
and Planning and Implementation.                                                  

Guidance #5: Remember: NO interrupting, interpreting, altering;
NO competing. 

Let each finish verbatimly at first.
You might have agreed to penultimate rounds for
“clarification & unanimity”;
allowing and even controlledly-encouraging
a possible suggestipn for improvement to any individual’s input
or part thereof; before confirming all Inputs
to be in the end “signed by each participant in black ink”.


This Method III requires co-voluntary personal and unequivocal

otherwise, you must “go queue up to fight it out in Court”.  

To continue go to page 2 for the Five  Steps and some support sources.

Method III : every-one gets their real need recognized
and cooperatively planned to be met.

Step 1 :  Each participant submits wording or amendment to describe
the Problem-Situation 
at first needing to be written up on a whiteboard
or butcher’s-paper,
and needing agreement by each participant
before moving on.
Keep going around until what your scribe has written up on the whiteboard
is perfectly approved
by each participant in a penultimate “clarification” and “unanimity” round.

Step 2:  Each participant suggests a solution
that they imagine might meet every-one’s need 

in the above-written situation.  Once again no interrupting, no paraphrasing,
no ‘improving’ the speaker’s own wording.
[Insert a “clarification & unanimity” round, to be sure]..

Step 3: Go round and round, evaluating each ‘imagined’ solution; 
e.g. by a show of  left-hand = 1 point, right-hand = 2 points,
both hands = 3 points, no hands = 0 points.
[Again maybe do a “clarification/unanimity” round]. 

Step 4: Select one of these shortlisted solutions; 
OR cooperatively cobble-together an eclectic-solution
made up of the best features from any of the solutions submitted in Step 2.
[“Unanimity” round].

Step 5:  Go round and round again,
this time constructing firstly a Plan A, 

that will best honour and ‘win-win-win’ meet each participant’s (and absentee’s)
most-important or vital real-need.

That settled, go round and round again,
constructing a Plan B “back-up plan”,
for what to do, for whatever could go wrong in Plan A ‘from the inside’,
or sabotage it ‘from the outside’.
Further back-up
 (contingency) plans should be decided upon.
And  don’t omit “unanimity” rounds, to be sure evry-one is ‘happy-so-far’

We do NOT need “mere good reading”
We do need to be newly-doing from the new-knowledge & know-how that of course we have to first “read How-to”,

we also need to be reading some of the Knowledge that does not lead directly into an “Exercise Instruction””
