Appreciative Inquiry

AI is a method for implementing change that is rooted in being positive, sharing stories of things that work well, and leveraging people’s strengths and the power of co-creation to initiate lasting, powerful changes that can make an individual or group the best they have ever been, because of people who care and are committed.
