Appreciative Inquiry Foundations Course, January 2009

Date: January 20-22 2009
Time: 8.30 am to 4.30 pm
Location: Duncan Conference Center, Delray Beach, Florida

Appreciative Inquiry (AI) is research into the root causes of success. It is asking,  ‘What goes well around here, and how can we get more of it?’

This theory-based and highly practical course will focus on:

  • Identifying the basic principles, assumptions and practices of Appreciative Inquiry
  • Identifying how and when to use Appreciative Inquiry
  • Defining a topic
  • Designing questions
  • Telling stories
  • Using the data from stories

Our 3-day course for individuals, groups, and group leaders provides opportunity for participants to gain a solid basic understanding of AI, with many opportunities to learn by doing.

This workshop is ideal for individuals, leadership groups from organizations, educators, clergy, and anyone who is interested in ‘change at the speed of imagination’!

Course facilitators, Marge Schiller PhD. and Joyce Lemke, have worked with a variety of groups from schools to social services, and advocacy groups to business leaders. For three days, they will be at the Duncan Conference Center teaching a dynamic and life-changing course.

Cost: $250 per person (Reasonably priced onsite accommodation also available)
