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. The program manager of this MoC wanted to show his pupils alternative change methods, such as Appreciative Inquiry. Because he is a friend of a friend, and because I’m always willing [...]

Appreciative Inquiry #038: How many D’s?

[from book part 6 - MY NEXT AI-SUMMIT] When you google Appreciative Inquiry, most times – especially when you google for pictures – you experience a four-step process: Discover, Dream, Design and Destiny. Simply summarized: Discover strong, helpful, positive experiences in the past. Dream of a future in which those strong experiences happen all the time. [...]

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. Let’s study  Gandhi’s brilliant “Be the change you want to see in the world”. 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. Four years have since passed. Time to re-appreciate his book. Here’s my part, which appeared to be quite suitable [...]

Appreciative Inquiry #033: Risk Management?

[from book part 5 - WHO AM I TO APPRECIATE] Appreciative Inquiry is often seen as a positive movement. And yes, there’s not much negativity to be found in practising AI. If you consider strength to be a positive quality, then the strength based method called AI can be seen as positive. If you like the [...]

Appreciative Inquiry #031: Longing for Change

[from book part 5 - WHO AM I TO APPRECIATE] Is there something you really would like to see happen in your environment? Would you like to initiate this change?

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 [...]
