Applications of Appreciative Inquiry is a highly experiential workshop designed by Ralph Weickel, Tenny Poole and Diana Whitney for those who seek to broaden their repertoire of practices and tools, to strengthen their Appreciative Inquiry work.
How do you know if this workshop is for you?
You read all you could, you took a Foundations workshop, and you began using Appreciative Inquiry. As you applied Appreciative Inquiry to your project you uncovered more questions than answers. Now you want to expand and enrich your knowledge and skill set by exploring multiple ways to apply Appreciative Inquiry. You want to learn the ‘tricks of the trade’ from the masters.
What can you learn by attending Applications of Appreciative Inquiry?
You will learn how to engage members of your organization at all levels, develop the optimum agenda and plan for a Appreciative Inquiry project, utilize team strengths and unleash organizational creativity. You will learn to use tools such as the Applications Matrix and Project Planning Template to guide the design of powerful appreciative engagements. You will strengthen your capacity in the basics of Appreciative Inquiry: to identify key strategic topics and develop questions that catalyze impactful conversations and sustainable results; to guide the creation of provocative propositions; and to launch highly committed innovation teams.
This exciting new workshop provides hands-on tools and utilizes case studies from healthcare, manufacturing, finance and government to provide you with the resources you have been longing for to further your practice of appreciative inquiry.
Applications of Appreciative Inquiry is a working clinic, a time for you and your team members to work on your projects and get help to ensure your success. It is an opportunity for you to develop implementation plans for your appreciative inquiry initiatives. You will leave this workshop with tools and a concrete plan for applying appreciative inquiry to a project with which you are involved.
