Using Appreciative Inquiry to Fuel Productive and Meaningful Engagement

About this Event

"A conversation is the smallest visible unit of change, our starting point for every important change effort. This book is a gift to the world, business, schools and families!" - Jon Berghoff, President, Flourishing Leadership Institute

Hope you can join us for this incredibly insightful webinar on April 2nd at 12 noon E.T.! You will learn two practices of how to positively influence any conversation and how you can prime yourself to engage in the Appreciative Inquiry zone!

Conversation is a crucial part of everything you do. It influences our well-being - a good conversation can leave us ready for anything, a bad one can ruin our whole day. But most of us are unaware of the nature of our conversations, let alone how to make them consistently affirming and empowering. This book shows how to use appreciative inquiry, one of the most effective and widely used approaches for fostering positive change, to dramatically improve the outcome of our conversations. By focusing on what we want to happen instead of what we want to avoid, and asking questions to deepen understanding and increase possibilities, we expand creativity, improve productivity, and unleash potential, at work and at home. Please go to for more information! 

"This book is for everyone, from managers striving to lead more effectively to parents trying to cultivate better conversations with children." - Lindsey Godwin, Director, David Cooperrider Center for Appreciative Inquiry.
