What questions are you are asking your teams and customers? Do your questions enable you to build on what is currently going well for them and your organization? Are you empowering them to dream and design the best possible outcome? Appreciative Inquiry works on the fundamental premises that every action we take is preceded by a question, and what we focus on grows. So by using questions that look for what is already working well and when people are engaged in what they are doing- instead of what’s broken and needs fixing –you can use these collective stories as a starting point to dream, design and co-create new possibilities for positive change. Appreciative Inquiry has been used successfully around the world to deliver lasting innovative and successful change in a range of business and social settings. It can be used with individuals, in small teams or across whole organisations.
Participants will be given an overview of why Appreciative Inquiry is an effective way to engage customers, employees and stakeholders in creating sustainable positive change. And will be introduced to the types of questions used in each of the Appreciative Inquiry 4D – discover, dream, design, destiny – stages.
