Upcoming Training Opportunity

Appreciative Inquiry (AI)

with John Steinabch,

nationally recognized trainer

Thursday, December 3

5:30—9:00 p.m. at INRC

(dinner will be provided to all registrants)

The Appreciative Inquiry (AI) perspective is based on the insight that individuals and organizations get superior results from appreciating strengths, assets, and high point experiences instead of focusing on weaknesses and problems. Based on the work of Cooperrider and Srivastva at Case Western Reserve in the 1980's, AI has quickly grown to become one of the most powerful concepts in organizational and individual change.

Most of our attempts at change and improvement focus on finding problems and developing solutions. While well-intentioned and occasionally effective, this problem solving approach often leads to defensiveness, low morale, and paralysis in the face of overwhelming obstacles. This problem-solving approach is so ingrained in most individuals and organizations that it has become unconscious and automatic. Understanding the positive option of Ai gives people a powerful new perspective to approach a variety of situations.

By focusing on what is working and strong, AI unleashes the energy of hope. The difference is truly amazing!
