COURSE AIMS

Organisations can be thought of as living beings made up of the individuals working within it. Appreciative Enquiry has the ability to change the whole organisation by changing the people. Through positive questioning people will be directed to move in a positive direction. Recognising the strengths and values of what works as opposed to what’s wrong will transform the individuals and thus transform the organisation.

Appreciative Enquiry is a shift from looking at problems and deficiencies and instead focusing on strengths and successes. It is a tool for organisational change and it will strengthen relationships. Who doesn’t like to share good positive stories and events? Think about it.

Appreciative enquiry focuses on finding the best in people and how they use it to function in their work and everyday life. Through appreciative enquiry, an employer uses the art of asking questions and opinions to strengthen the system as a whole, creating a more positive environment and heightening employee potential. This approach is designed to focus less on negativity and criticism, and utilise personal design and encourage discovery.
