Appreciative Inquiry for Social Change

Appreciative Inquiry (AI) departs from traditional problem solving by discovering the strengths of an organization or community as the building blocks for creating and implementing a vision for the future. Participants learn how AI can be used in three ways: (1) As a way of living your life or being in the world; (2) As a positive approach to working with change in families, groups, organizations, and communities; and (3) As a five-phase process of learning and change. In this AI Foundations course, participants learn how to develop an appreciative interview, become familiar with the 5-D process and experience this positive change tool by applying it to their own organization or community.
