2 Day Workshop


CoResolve is a facilitation method for leaders who want to practise participative leadership even in complex or emotionally intense situations. The method based on the “Lewis Method of Deep Democracy”, which was developed in South Africa after apartheid with the aim to create diverse organsations without hierarchy in (at the time) deeply conflicted teams. It is practised in more than 20 countries around the world. As a facilitation method it is especially useful to help resolve conflict and address complex or emotionally charged group issues. It enables us to use our diversity and difference, and to come into a productive flow.

With CoResolve we have refined these tools specifically for leaders to facilitate their own teams. The tools address usual issues of not being totally neutral and allow for the lead to have an opinion on what is being discussed, and not have to become a neutral mediator, but stay part of the group.
