CoResolve Deep Democracy Training - 2016

An Introduction for Leaders 

Sera Thompson, CEO of New Leaf Innovation and a Master level Deep Democracy facilitator, has teamed up with Springtide Collective to offer CoResolve training in the Fall of 2016. 

In today’s complex organizations, the skillful handling of interpersonal and team dynamics has become a vital quality among leaders. CoResolve training increases leaders’ capacity to succeed in turbulent times by offering practical tools for working with differences in a group and turning destructive conflict into creative tension.

CoResolve offers tools to help citizens more readily engage with, and navigate conflict resolution and consensus-based decision making in their workplaces, community organizations, political associations, and personal lives.

Some of those who might find the most value in CoResolve training include:

  • community activists and organizers 
  • board and committee chairs, executive directors
  • current and aspiring elected representatives 
  • anyone with an interest in better working through the conflict they encounter in their lives and work

What some people are saying about Deep Democracy:

"Deep democracy may be the most hopeful process that I have seen for universally getting to the heart of what separates us in our big social, cultural challenges.”  - Danny Graham, Chief Engagement Officer at Engage Nova Scotia, former Liberal Party Leader

CoResolve is based on the Lewis method of Deep Democracy developed in post-apartheid South Africa and practiced in over 20 countries around the world. Deep Democracy is a psychologically based facilitation methodology particularly useful for working with relationship and group dynamics that are emotionally charged or marked by difference. CoResolve gives you the theoretical background, instructions, experiential learning opportunities, and long-term support that you need to begin using the most powerful and essential tools of Deep Democracy in your leadership. The course will take place from 9AM-5PM on November 3rd & 4th, 2016.
