Imagine if you could energize yourself each morning with a positive attitude, transform the negative thoughts that hold you back, develop smoother and more meaningful relationships, and recognize the potential good in any and every situation. Appreciative Living Learning Circles were created to do just that and are open to anyone. This workshop introduces participants to Appreciative Inquiry (AI), a successful methodology embraced by organizations around the world, from small nonprofits to the United Nations, to lead positive changes. Now you can learn to apply the principles of AI in your daily life with short and easy exercises that help you become more optimistic, joyful, and resilient. Jackie Kelm’s book provides supplemental information on Appreciative Inquiry and each week, participants are asked to read some chapters and practice their exercises for a few minutes daily. Alexandra Arnold is pursuing a Master’s in Psychology, has a Certificate in Positive Organizational Development, and facilitates workshops on AI.
