Training Deep Democracy

The wisdom of the minority

Jitske Kramer


Imagine that, for once, at the start of a strategic process we didn’t say ‘I hope we will all reach agreement quickly’. But instead 'how amazing it is to be here together with so many people, with so many opinions and networks. With so much differences. Let’s make the best possible use of all this wisdom, all these different backgrounds, all this knowledge.’ What great matters could not be achieved with each other? But how do you do it? How do you ensure that it is not always those few people who open their mouths on a management day? That all points of view are addressed? That the whole is more important than the egos?

WIsdom of the minority

Deep Democracy is a philosophy and a technique that ensures comprehensive decisions, which increases the effectiveness in a team or organization. By not avoiding differences and opposing opinions but rather in including them, the undercurrent within groups becomes visible and manageable. Decisions are made with care and consideration for other points of view. Without forcing consensus or sweeping conflicts under the carpet. By adding the wisdom of the minority to a decision, people will resist it less and decisions will be qualitatively stronger. The deep democratic mandate will provide you with leadership, allow of quicker shifts.

We have a website for the Deep Democracy training course, full information on the methods, the training courses, dates and enrollment.
