What is Appreciative Inquiry?
Appreciative Inquiry is a collaborative, strengths-based approach to both personal and organizational development that is proving to be highly effective in thousands of organizations and communities in more than a hundred countries around the world. It is a way of bringing about change that shares leadership and learning, fully engaging everyone in the organization.
Beyond being a simple organizational development process, Appreciative Inquiry becomes a generative way to energize the creative best in people and their organizations. While positive in focus, the appreciative approach does not avoid problems; rather it re-focuses energy away from ideas of blame and the cause of problems to possibilities and solutions.
