Why using Appreciative Inquiry?

The times that we are living in are questioning our ways of working, living and being – individually and collectively.
Sometimes that can feel big and overwhelming.
AI helps to ground us. It looks at our own stories with loving curiosity, helps us see the value and resilience in what we have and to realize that our challenges are the gateways to unfold our potential and use them as possibilities for change.

  • Anyone who is ready to contribute to the paradigm shift

This is the content of the modules

In the 2,5 month we’ll travel together we’ll get to know the 6 Classic Principles of Appreciative Inquiry (AI) and apply them to your personal quest:

  • In module 1 we learn what a paradigm shift actually is and how it is different from an innovation, more fundamental then just the creation of a new product or process. We’ll also learn about the fundamental ideas and assumptions of AI.
  • module 2: Following Einstein’s quote that “one cannot solve the problem on the same level of awareness as it has been created”, we’ll get to know the power of questions and our imagination to go beyond our own status quo of thinking and feeling.
  • module 3: We’ll learn that our current view on the challenge we are facing is just one out of many and we can choose which one serves us best. We’ll gather the courage to make a decision and to take the next step.
  • module 4: In the knowing that “Words create worlds” we’ll consciously choose the words we’ll use for the crafting our new story, while at the same time holding the space for the existence of other stories, interpretations and truths.
  • module 5: we look at the journey we made so far and how we can use what we learned and apply it also to other challenges. Where else might you use what you’ve been learning once you move through the open door and surface after this hopefully refreshing and challenging dive?
