Generating Positive Change with Appreciative Inquiry

Appreciative Inquiry (AI) is about the collective search for the best in people, and it is a powerful tool for re-framing problems and creating positive organizational change. This interactive session covers the philosophy, principles, and practices of AI, including the 4-D cycle, SOAR (Strengths, Opportunities, Aspirations, and Results), and practical tips for how to facilitate AI sessions with teams. Research on the success of Appreciative Inquiry to transform organizations will be shared, along with the first-hand strategic planning experience at Medicine Hat College, which is using AI to create a positive organizational culture.
