Wise Democracy Social Innovations
The Social Innovations ...
- Choice-creating. This is the essential quality of thinking needed for "We the People" to become empowered and make thoughtful choices. It is different than dialogue, deliberation, negotiation, brainstorming, problem-solving, or discussion. (See the chart comparing dialogue, deliberation and choice-creating.)
- Dynamic Facilitation. Key is to reliably evoke choice-creating among a group of people. That's what Dynamic Facilitation can do. (See the chart comparing Traditional Facilitation with Dynamic Facilitation.)
- The Wisdom Council provides a way to include all the people of a large system into a choice-creating conversation. First, just 12 or so citizens (or employees, or members) are randomly selected. Then they are dynamically facilitated to achieve the spirit of choice-creating and create a unanimous perspective. Then they report this back to all, who are then encouraged to visit about the results and indicate their level of resonance. Most people say, "Yes, I think so too." And even if they don't, they now find themselves in a respectful conversation seeking unity rather than the usual political argument.
