You are warmly welcome to join the Imagination Club on Wednesday, 11 February at 18h45 for an interactive workshop on:

Appreciative Inquiry

"Appreciative Inquiry (AI) is the cooperative search for the best in people, their organizations and the world around them. It involves the systematic discovery of what gives a system 'life' when it is most effective and capable in economic, ecological, and human terms. AI involves the art and practice of asking questions that strengthen a system's capacity to heighten positive potential. It mobilizes inquiry through crafting an 'unconditional positive question' often involving hundreds or sometimes thousands of people." (1)

In this workshop, you will learn the basics of AI through an explanation of the basic theory and the opportunity to try out AI in group exercises. You will even get some great references for further study.

Do you want a little taste of AI? Then the next time you want to ask: "how are you?" ask instead "what was your best moment today?" You'll be impressed with the results!

This workshop will be facilitated by Sigrid Ramault
