Plan to bring with you the challenges you have encountered or
are experiencing in the group/organizational change process.

discussion of specific situations in which Appreciate Inquiry
might be applied.
Eight Assumptions of Appreciative Inquiry,
Explore the nature of assumptions in an organization/group.
We will define and discuss the base assumptions of AI, how they
affect the change process and how we may have experienced them
already in our facilitation practice.
Six Core Principles of Appreciative Inquiry,
the DNA of Appreciative Inquiry gives us a foundation upon which
we can build the infrastructure of a change process that works.
Five Steps to Appreciative Inquiry,
designing an appreciative question to creating a provocative
proposal and manifesting a destiny, each step is crucial to
the process of Appreciative Inquiry. We get to incorporate the
"buzzwords" of the last decade, Innovation, Empowerment,
Continuous Leaning, Partnership, and Making A Difference, into
a process of change that is FUN! Imagine the possibilities!
and Opportunities (one month after the first three classes),
