Appreciative Inquiry

Appreciative Inquiry (AI) is a strengths-based approach for positive change that can be applied on an individual, communal or organisational basis. “AI focuses on what is working well (appreciate) by engaging people in asking questions and telling stories (inquire)” is a useful definition given by practitioners Joan McArthur-Blair and Jeanie Cockell.

In 2019, I completed ‘Introduction to Appreciative Inquiry’ (Module One) and, in 2021, I completed ‘Deepening Your Appreciative Inquiry Practice’ (Module Two) as part of my journey towards accreditation as an AI practitioner by the International Association of Appreciative Inquiry (IAAI).
