appreciative inquiry
Appreciative Inquiry

The glass is half full- and how do we make it more full.

appreciative inquiry13
Appreciative Inquiry

Appreciative Inquiry does not turn a blind eye on negative situations or deficit- oriented realities in organisations; it does not substitute a romantic and rosy picture for an objective and realistic one. It accepts the realities for what they are- areas in need of conversion or transformation. All intentionality shifts the focus of the inquiry and intervention to those realities that are sources of vitality and that manifest the marvels of God within an organisation.

Consult not your fears

But your hopes and dreams

Think not about your frustrations,

But about your unfulfilled potential.

Concern yourself not with what you failed in,

But with what it is still possible for you to do.

Pope John XXIII
