Appreciative Inquiry: Strengths-Based Organizational Change
Organizations such as schools are full of problems to be solved, right? Wrong. In fact, if you think this way, you’ll stagnate. This handout introduces the coaching technique of Appreciative Inquiry and will reset your attitudes and behaviors by teaching you to capitalize on strengths and possibilities.
Appreciative Inquiry is a radically affirmative approach to change. It lets go of traditional problem-based management. It is a process that recognizes the best in people and the world around us. By openly exploring what works, rather than what’s broken, AI can transform an organization. The focus is on the Positive Core. The main method is the Appreciative Interview.
