Appreciative Inquiry (AI) – Using the Power and Wisdom of Successes

AI is a philosophy as well as a methodological approach for team and organizational development. It may admit the existence of problems, but the focus it chooses is entirely elsewhere — on the unfolding of group resources and potentials.

There are a few basic assumptions that are at the heart of AI:

  • People and social systems always develop in the direction of their focus and attention.
  • Every human being, every relationship and every system has unsuspected and unused positive potential that comes to light now and then.
  • People face the future with more trust and comfort if they are able to keep something from the past.
  • If we keep something from the past, it should be the best of the past.

The past and present are rich with positive experiences and insights and can be an infinite source for development, performance and success.

The 7 Appreciators’ Perspectives

It is not in question that we experience ups and downs in life. The question is: How to deal constructively with them?

The Appreciators (Die Wertschätzer) reflected, reasoned and researched this question for 5 years. The result? The 7 Appreciative Perspectives. We have found they have the power to deepen, spread and create appreciation. They make a difference in people’s lives—especially ours.

Coaching by phone – simply, effectively, and powerfully.

We mostlty work with our favourite tool, the telephone.

Find out why: Besides unquestionable practicality, it actually has some special qualities of its own. The limitation to hearing the coaching partner has his own special and natural quality. It promotes the concentration on the essential topic without any distraction of visual impressions. Coaching processes can develop rapidly and effectively.

Humans long for appreciation and recognition.

Many of our conscious and unconscious actions are based on this primal urge.
