what is appreciative inquiry
What is Appreciative Inquiry?

Appreciative Inquiry (AI) comes from:

Appreciate – to value, to recognize with gratitude, to increase in value

Inquiry – to seek to understand through the asking of questions

AI involves making a very conscious and deliberate choice: to ask only positive questions when we seek to understand what is needed to make life better in organizations; we want to ensure that the very act of our asking questions causes what is best about the organization to appreciate.

AI involves making a very conscious and deliberate choice:

to ask only positive questions when we seek to understand what is needed to make life better in organizations;

to ensure that the very act of our asking questions causes what is best about the organization to appreciate.

assumptions of ai
ASSUMPTIONS OF AI
  • In every organization or group, something works.
  • What we focus on becomes our reality.
  • Reality is created in the moment, and there are multiple realities.
  • The act of asking questions of an organization influences the group in some way.
assumptions of ai1
ASSUMPTIONS OF AI
  • People have more confidence and comfort to journey to the future (unknown) when they carry forward parts of the past (known).
  • If we carry parts of the past forward, they should be what is best about the past.
  • It is important to value differences.
  • The language we use creates our reality.
