Co-creating an Appreciative Space for Change
Appreciative Inquiry (AI) is a positive, strength-based methodology that seeks to discover the best in people and organizations. At the core of AI, the principle of Social Construction drives the process for compelling change. Our words and our interactions are fateful. We create reality together through our language, stories and relationships.
During this session, we will dive deeper into this principle and invite conversation regarding how we impact organizational change through dialogue, reframing, and valuing ways to ignite positive change. We will intersect AI and the work of Don Miguel Ruiz, The Four Agreements and demonstrate how our ability to shift perspective and show up is pivotal to change initiatives.
