Module 3 – Appreciative Inquiry and Teams Working with Change 

Appreciative Inquiry is an approach ... based on strengths rather than weaknesses, on a vision of what is possible rather than an analysis of what is not. --David Cooperrider

Welcome to Module 3! Now that you have the basics of Appreciative Inquiry and conversations under your belt you are ready to successfully engage with teams in change. Focussed case studies, real world applications and sample processes will help you design interventions that engage (rather than alienate) people in change.

Using Appreciative Inquiry enables us to motivate and maximise creativity and commitment in planning.
