Appreciative Inquiry Teams provide a means to approach problems and avoid getting bogged down in negativity. Apply David Cooperrider’s theory and the toolkit for Conversations Worth Having (Stavros & Torres) in stakeholder meetings to positively reframe an issue or problem to be socially sensitive, future-oriented, and well-defined. Then generative questions focused on the desired outcome are brainstormed to facilitate action. An overview of the process will be followed with interactive practice using a number of participant suggested problems.
After this session, program participants will be able to:
1. Reframe the problem as an opportunity for growth and a vision for the future.
2. Create generative questions to know what specifically to ask to grow.
3. Name and follow action steps that will create the envisioned future.
