Like many of you in the AI field, I have practiced Appreciative Inquiry for a number of years. During this time I have taught Appreciative Inquiry, consulted using Appreciative Inquiry, and have developed Appreciative Inquiry workshops on behalf of the Center for Appreciative Inquiry. At the end of 2013, I had the opportunity to participate in the Appreciative Inquiry Coaching Training (AICT). I did not have any experience coaching, but being a life-long learner, was excited about participating in this highly-experiential workshop.
I learned so much in this training, not just about AI, but about myself. It strengthened the skill sets and strengths I already possess, and has made me a better person, consultant and coach as a result of it. I highly recommend this training for individuals seeking to improve their conversations with themselves and with others. It helped me to see, appreciate, and celebrate the good in others which has directly impacted my relationships with myself, family, friends, colleagues and the World for the better.
I invite you all to explore the Center for Appreciative Inquiry’s website to learn more about this amazing workshop (click here). If you have questions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org as I would be happy to share my experience.
