Appreciative Inquiry Workshops

Appreciative Inquiry (AI) is a strength-based process used to generate positive, sustainable change in organizations, teams, and individuals. Facilitated in workshops, customized to address your specific needs, its underlying premise is that engaging people in dialogue, focused on their experiences of success, unleashes creativity for envisioning the potential of the organization and energy for implementing changes that help bring that potential into reality. AI produces measurable results:

  • 300% increase in revenue
  • 75% reduction in employee absenteeism
  • 30% increase in Board membership and volunteers

Scientifically and theoretically rooted in positive psychology, social constructionism, complexity theory, whole systems theory and theories of self-organizing systems, AI elicits stories and expressions of meaning through the use of questions focused on root causes of success, as a model for future action.

Corporations, governments, non-for-profits, and aid organizations, including McDonald’s, RBC, Fanshawe college, Hospice of Ontario, Toronto School Board, GTE Telecommunications, NASA, the US Navy, Roadway Express, Avon, Save the Children, USAID, and World Vision, have used AI successfully for:
