Appreciative Inquiry Peg Syverson
Appreciative Inquiry (AI) is the cooperative co-evolutionary search for the best in people, their organizations, and the world around them. It involves the discovery of what gives "life" to a living system when it is most effective, alive, and constructively capable in economic, ecological, and human terms. AI involves the art and practice of asking questions that strengthen a system’s capacity to apprehend, anticipate, and heighten positive potential. It’s based on research showing that a focus on solving problems is self-defeating. In AI, the questions we ask are positive and fateful: they tend to direct our energy and attention toward what is wanted and needed, our highest aspirations. There are four steps to the AI process: Discover, Dream, Design, and Destiny. We can learn to apply the principles of AI in our personal lives as well as in the groups and systems we are part of. This practical program will introduce the AI model as a process for both individual and collaborative evolution.
