Basis of the Training

CoResolve is based on Lewis Deep Democracy which was developed in post- apartheid South Africa and is practiced in over 20 countries around the world.

In CoResolve we have honed these tools for leaders. In this method, a leader is identified as anyone driving a process to achieve an objective. 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 Lewis Deep Democracy in your leadership.
