The Appreciative Inquiry Foundations Course | March 7-11

Mon, March 7, 2011

Presenters: Jane Watkins and Mette Jacobsgaard
Location: Johannesburg, South Africa at the Wilgespruit Fellowship Center

This course is designed for managers, human resource professionals, organisational and community facilitators from corporate, governmental and charitable, not-for-profit organisations – anyone who wants to get a solid grounding in the theory and practice of Appreciative Inquiry.

Developed over the past decade, this workshop uses an experience-based model that prepares consultants to work with AI in client systems and prepares leaders and managers to use AI for working with organisation and community change. Rather than just another technique, AI is presented as a radically innovative approach to facilitating change. Illustrations of this constructive approach to organisation transformation will be drawn from work with small and large corporations, with communities, and with international organisations addressing global issues of trans-boundary concern.

What You Will Learn:
This in-depth Course will cover both the theory and practice of Appreciative Inquiry. Special attention will be given to the power of positive questions, the simultaneity of inquiry and change, the function of narrative and metaphor in human systems transformation; how to deal with spiralling vocabularies of human deficit, how to create alignment across functional, generational, cultural and technical boundaries; and how to build global organising capacity to meet the challenges of the next millennium.
