Introducing positive change in your team or organization
I am a big fan of Appreciative Inquiry (AI) as an approach to introduce change in organizations, teams, communities and workshops and also for personal and leadership development.
Appreciative Inquiry is a philosophy and a methodology for positive change. It is founded on the simple assumption that human systems – teams, organizations and people – move in the direction of what they study, what they focus upon and what they talk about with regularity.
I like it because it proposes a shift from problem solving to identifying and building on existing strengths.
The basic tenet of AI is that a team or an organization will grow in whichever direction that people in the organization focus their attention.
As a change management approach it is suitable for a wide range of transformation processes, including quality management, vision/mission/value creation, improvement of collaboration, etc. It is the starting point and basic philosophy of my Lab for Change methodology.
In today´s post I introduce the main aspects of this impactful approach, provide case studies as well as some tips to implement it. Continue reading HERE.
