Appreciative Inquiry (AI) is today’s hottest new change management approach. It is a strengths-based approach to human and organizational development and positive psychology. AI focuses on the talents and gifts of the people involved to maximize results through the study of strengths, excellence, resilience, and optimal functioning. Appreciative Inquiry provides you with a process to engage, inspire, and energize people; all while you are positively impacting your performance results. This is your invitation to join the revolution!

At the end of this workshop, you will be better able to: 

  • Understand the four-D model of Appreciative Inquiry
  • Appreciate the benefits of creating an organizational culture in which good business = good relationships
  • Bridge the influence of positive psychology and the strengths movement to better organizational health and bottom-line results
  • Connect positive emotion and innovation
  • Maximize the power of collaboration
  • Use this methodology to create and sustain positive change in your organization
