With Group Endorsements we use a bottom up approach to ensure quality leadership where leaders are promoted and elected by knowledgeable and engaged individuals. However, when making decisions Group Endorsements work equally well in reverse.
INCLUSION OF LOWER LEVELS
When leaders at a higher level fail to agree on a decision they can easily draw on members from the lower levels for their thoughts and opinions. This not only allows people at lower levels to be part of the discussions, but also gives them an opportunity to earn endorsements should they provide an innovative idea or solution for the matter being discussed.
Additionally, with the open discussions that group endorsements promote, anyone who has been following the discussion can contribute with their ideas or thoughts.
MULTIPLE GROUPS PARTICIPATE IN THE DISCUSSIONS
All groups, through their leadership, are encouraged to contribute and join in the discussions. This allows for diverse interests to represent themselves while the focus of the discussion still remains on decisions that provide the maximum benefit to society.
NO STRUGGLE FOR POWER AND CONTROL
The discussions are free from a struggle for power and control as the focus at all times is on decisions that provide the maximum benefit to the most number of people or society in general. Should a situation arise where there is an element of power and control during discussions, the quality and size of the discussion group can be readily reviewed.
Thus deliberation always occur in a high quality environment that is free from the influence of dominant players and within a group that is both knowledgeable and engaged in the matter being discussed.
