The Power of Appreciative Inquiry: Theory and Practice
Appreciative Inquiry is recognized worldwide as a revolutionary process for high engagement positive change. In this program (formerly known as the Foundations of Appreciative Inquiry), you will learn how it has been successfully used for organization culture change, strategic planning, merger integration, union management partnerships and community development. And you will learn how to do it, from start to powerful results. This hands-on workshop is based upon Diana Whitney and Amanda Trosten-Bloom’s best selling book, The Power of Appreciative Inquiry, a copy of which is included with your registration.
You will learn to design and facilitate key steps in the Appreciative Inquiry process: forming and facilitating a core team, articulating a change agenda, selecting affirmative topics, crafting and conducting appreciative interviews, making meaning of narrative data, envisioning and enacting positive futures, drafting provocative propositions and supporting innovation teams. And you will leave with a focused plan for using Appreciative Inquiry to create positive change in your organization or community.
This workshop fulfills a requirement in the Certificate Program: Appreciative Inquiry and Practice of Positive Change.
