A new Practical Appreciative Inquiry training starts soon – click here to get the details and how to book
I’m always on the lookout for great Appreciative Inquiry resources to share in my Positive Change Methods groups on Facebook and LinkedIn – here are some of the best that I’ve found in the last few months:
Two free articles from the latest issue of AI Practitioner magazine: ‘Climate Action Starts Within’ by Alex Arnold, and ‘Naturalising Appreciative Inquiry’ by Dr Nick Heap (downloadable PDF)
Overcoming limiting beliefs with appreciative dialogue – podcast interview with Keith Storace
Our Earthshot Moment: Net Positive OD for the Creation of a World of Full Spectrum Flourishing – article by David Cooperrider and Lindsey Godwin (downloadable PDF)
13 Conflict Resolution Conversation Starters from the Conversations Worth Having website
A brief introductory guide to Appreciative Inquiry from the Cooperrider Center for Appreciative Inquiry
A free book by Cees Hoogendijk, Appreciative Inquiries of the 3.0 Kind. It has very short chapters (probably best dipped into rather than read in one go) and is full of thought-provoking ideas.
How to shape your conversations for more positive results – podcast interview with Jackie Stavros and Cheri Torres, authors of the excellent Conversations Worth Having
Lots of free books on Social Constructionism and Appreciative Inquiry from the Taos Institute
And finally, some great interviews with Appreciative Inquiry thought leaders (including David Cooperrider) on the recently-launched Inspiring Impacts podcast.
