Focusing on the Positive
Often times, we focus more on fixing what's wrong rather than on building organizations around what works well. Appreciative Inquiry (AI) is a philosophy, a world view, a process for aligning organizational goals with the assets and values of the people within the system.
AI can be a powerful perspective and process that fosters enthusiasm for and high commitment to effective change. It can be a perspective on any process - coaching leaders, creating and strengthening teams, resolving differences, valuing diversity and inclusion, redesigning organizations, strategic planning - as well as a process for creating community and addressing social issues.
Appreciative Inquiry Training
In 2013, NTL is offering Appreciative Inquiry: Strategic Planning, a program enabling participants to develop the capacity to seek and implement continuous innovation within their organizations by utilizing an appreciative planning approach.
