More formally, Appreciative Inquiry (AI) has been described as: "a change methodology grounded in theories from the disciplines of organization behavior and the sciences of sociology and psychology, with a good dose of metaphyics." Less formally, it is described as a positive, strengths-based approach to change that invites the “system” of a business or community to contribute to and co-create desired positive change.

Join us to share in a discussion with Elaine Suess, Executive Coach and Certified Appreciative Inquiry practitioner, as we take on the Appreciative approach to change, a process associated with it, and how inviting the system in can make all the difference.

Please spread the news!
