Appreciative Inquiry #039: How affirmative can a topic be?

[from book part 6 - MY NEXT AI-SUMMIT] Let me tell you about an AI summit with MBA students in a Master of Change program.

Appreciative Inquiry #038: How many D’s?

Appreciative Inquiry #037: Intensity of the Intentions

[from book part 6 - MY NEXT AI-SUMMIT] Imagine 120 people, grouped around fifteen tables of eight people each. They were all stakeholders of the large Dutch national firefighters organization, all somehow connected to ‘transferring learning to working practice’. (The practical transfer is always important in learning, but it especially is for firemen.) Red tablecloths on [...]

Appreciative Inquiry #035: Be Congruent

[from book part 5 - WHO AM I TO APPRECIATE] Over the years I’ve become very sensitive about congruent (and discongruent) behavior.

In the first years of this century I worked for a large international express & logistics company, assigned to look [...]

Appreciative #034: Everyone is an Independent Professional

[from book part 5 - WHO AM I TO APPRECIATE] My good friend Rudy Brouwer, great networker of the 3.0 kind, invited me to contribute to his book Networking from the heart. That was back in 2011.

Appreciative Inquiry #030: My Values, my Drivers, my Strengths?

[from book part 5 - WHO AM I TO APPRECIATE] Imagine yourself as a coworker in a company, part of a team, or a partner in a relationship. Out of the blue, a new context arises. Somehow, the new arrangement is that all agreements, rules and procedures have become completely obsolete, null and void. Imagine this [...]
