We are all learners: every day we learn more about ourselves and the world we live in, as it seems to move at the speed of light, especially in this age of discontinuity. Transformation, enables us to see the world differently, and that requires new experiences and reflections, learning and change. We’ve heard that organizations change when people change, and there’s evidence of that in this edition. Everything we’ve learned about change involves individual change, which requires introspection, education, a certain set of experiences, and the support of significant others, in exploring who we are and what we want in life. We realize many people have the will and not the skill to change. That’s where we as Appreciative Inquiry practitioners come in. This edition of AI Practitioner is full of wonderful examples of the individual and organizational transformation that starts with learning.
