Process Oriented Leadership and Facilitation Training for the 21st Century

Leadership is a concept that is often still thought of in terms of the actions of specific individuals who rule or guide others. We at the Deep Democracy Institute define modern leadership as a body of cognitive, emotional and spiritual competencies that are inherent in all individuals and teams of an organization.

Our 3 year training is focused on awareness methods to discover these competencies, develop them, and mentor and facilitate them in others.

The principle of Deep Democracy suggests that all tendencies in an individual or collective are meaningful in its emerging potential, and need to be facilitated and related to.

Unlike the traditional interpretation of democracy, majority rule, deep democracy implies A PROCESS, a story that is meant to show the meaning of the roles in a given play, however wonderful or painful they might be.

Our job as facilitators is to assist all the roles to develop more relationship and understanding of one another. Deep democracy can be used to mentor and coach personal and professional development.

It is a very powerful tool to facilitate small and large group processes, involving up to several thousand people. It can also be used to develop vision and strategies for teams and companies that exceed mechanistic goal setting techniques, which often fail in the face of reality.
