What is Appreciative Inquiry

“Appreciative Inquiry is the cooperative search for the best in people, their organizations, and the world around them.”– David Cooperrider

Appreciative Inquiry begins an adventure.  An exciting direction.  A positive revolution.  Think of the possibilities your organization can experience when its core competitive advantage – the employees – are fully engaged and using their strengths to collectively achieve a shared vision.

act-cycleAppreciative Inquiry is a collaborative, strengths-based approach to both personal and organizational development. It starts with the best of “what is” and helps you discover how to turn it into “what can be.”  Appreciative Inquiry is a way of bringing about change that shares leadership, fosters learning and involves everyone’s strengths at all levels to create the collective dream.

Appreciative Inquiry can be used for positive growth, in:

  • Employee attitude and morale change
  • Innovations toward the ideal organization
  • Leadership and management development
  • Strategic planning and development
  • Team development and motivation
  • Vision and values clarification

Or for any human system change!
