Why add the Appreciative Inquiry (AI) methodology to your skill toolbox?  In an increasingly VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, and Ambiguous) world, we need fast and effective ways to spark new thinking. This approach, started by David Cooperider in the 1980s, invites you to incorporate strengths and successes into your process and innovate your future by asking meaningful questions that inspire new thinking. This interactive session will teach foundational concepts, help you understand when to use AI, and get you started incorporating it in your work and personal life. We will explore how you can incorporate meaningful questions and enhance engagement, leverage collaboration, and develop actionable outcomes with your teams. You will experience this methodology and find new ways to invite more gratitude and positivity into your life.

In this Coffee Break you will:
  • Experience Appreciative Inquiry (AI) as a strength-based, creativity approach.
  • Learn foundational concepts and when to use AI vs. CPS.
  • Get started incorporating this methodology in your work and personal life.
