The Appreciative Leader
Appreciative Inquiry is a powerful organizational development tool for workplaces, classrooms, communities
and families. Appreciative Inquiry (AI) focuses on that which is already working well (appreciative) by engaging people
in asking questions and telling stories (inquiry). This strengths-based, positive approach to change represents a 180 degree shift way from deficit based, problem- oriented, gap analysis approach in many of our organizations. This shift to a positive focus stimulates creativity and vibrancy within each person and the whole group accelerating deep, sustainable change
with ease.

Building & Leading a
Culture of Thriving in
Your Organization
The session begins with an exploration
of the concept of sustainability in organizations. Sustainability has moved
to the forefront of corporate thinking as
the implications of human, environmental and economic strain and depletion become frighteningly apparent. In an increasingly fast-paced, constantly changing corporate landscape, it can be difficult to find the time, the clarity or the focus to refill the tank
let alone re-read the map. Organizations can waste a great deal of time, energy and resources solving the wrong problems or putting out fires, resulting in a culture of coping as opposed to a culture of thriving and regenerative growth.
