Lewis Deep Democracy is a cutting edge facilitation, decision making, conflict resolution and inclusive leadership methodology. It specifically aims on surfacing undercurrent, including all voices, for the main purpose of achieving breakthroughs in seemingly impossible-to-solve issues.


It is “democratic” because it emphasises that every voice matters and that decisions are wisest when majority and minority voices are both valued. It is “deep” because it goes far beyond the engagement with ideas and instead surfaces emotions, intuitions, attachments, and identify issues that make a conversation more honest and real.
Effectively managing team work and group dynamics is often not easy. Problems are often encountered in the following areas:
  • Decision making
  • Gaining real commitment to act
  • Listening and breakdown in communication
  • Openness to alternative views
  • Dealing with diversity, tension and conflict
Deep Democracy offers an innovative way of dealing with group dynamics and provides a method for making effective decisions, dealing with conflict and enabling inclusiveness.
Our team are accredited facilitators, trainers and supervisors in the Lewis Deep Democracy methodology.
  • We facilitate small/large group dialogue to discuss challenging issues, resolve interpersonal and team conflict to strengthening relationships and facilitate executive team meetings to support decision making and engagement
