Practical Appreciative Inquiry: How to Use this Leading-Edge Coaching Method Confidently with Teams and Small Groups

Do you love the idea of Appreciative Inquiry, but you’re not sure how you would put it into practice?

This book is the step-by-step guide to get you started using it confidently with teams and small groups.

“A highly practical handbook for both newbies and experienced facilitators.” – Robyn Stratton-Berkessel, author, Appreciative Inquiry for Collaborative Solutions, and host, Positivity Strategist Podcast.

In this book you’ll discover a practical, scalable process that you can use to:

  • Quickly get diverse groups talking freely to each other
  • Get everyone collaborating on creating a shared vision
  • Unleash the creativity of everyone in the team to generate new ideas
  • Get from vision to action plan in less than two hours, with an engaging, participative method that involves the whole team…

Plus the book gives you a clear explanation of the principles that underpin Appreciative Inquiry and – crucially – how to apply them in practice.

There’s also a summary of more recent discoveries in neuroscience that explain why Appreciative Inquiry works so well – and which every coach, leader, and change agent needs to know about.
