As part of the one week Appreciative Inquiry foundations course, which takes place from February 24 through 28, we are inviting people interested in strength-based approaches to change in general and Appreciative Inquiry in particular for an informal evening session.
You will have the chance to talk to two leading experts and experienced Appreaciative Inquiry practitioners.
What is Appreciative Inquiry?
Appreciative Inquiry WorkshopAppreciative Inquiry (AI) is a powerful new vehicle for energising positive change in an organisation’s or community’s human, ecological and economic functioning. Its aim is to discover, expand, and sustain an organisation’s root causes of success.
As a next generation approach to the whole field of organisation change and development, AI is a consulting process which grows out of social constructionist thought and its applications to organisation and community transformation. While AI is very effective in facilitating change at the individual and small group level, AI is particularly useful in complex environments and situations such as
• culture transformation
• programme formulation and evaluation
• strategic planning
and for relational processes such as
• union/management relationship
• conflict resolution
• capacity building
AI also enables managers to make the essential leap in becoming true leaders of their organisations.
