Deep Democracy

For a good conversation a better conflict and the best decision

publication by Ingrid van Aert and Marlies Leupen – 15 April 2020
Working together ... how to give space to all the voices in your group or team? How to reach a decision that you and all your colleagues want to commit to? To maximize the wisdom of your group, we would like to introduce to you a new way of thinking: Deep Democracy. This philosophy and method gives you tools to keep talking to each other in an open and constructive way, whether you meet each other physically or online. A tool to start difficult conversations and get as many issues on the table as possible, also in online meetings. A tool to make decisive decisions, even if you do not immediately agree.

In this zine you'll find three rituals that are of value when you will work together. Enjoy!
