Week 1: Appreciative Inquiry - introduction
What is Appreciative Inquiry, or AI? The first lesson provides some background and an overview of the key components of AI.
Week 2: The Constructionist Principle
Words create worlds - Reality is subjective. Each of us constructs it through our unique experiences and conversations.
Week 3: The Simultaneity Principle
Inquiry is change - Change happens the moment we ask a question, therefore “the questions we ask are fateful.”
Week 4: The Poetic Principle
What we focus on grows - Life is like a poem, there are endless ways to interpret it. What we choose to pay attention to becomes the world as we know it.
Week 5: The Anticipatory Principle
Images inspire action - People move in the direction of their images of the future. The more positive and hopeful the image, the more effective their present actions become.
Week 6: The Positive Principle
From a positive core to a positive spiral - There is good in everything and everyone. Momentum for change starts with small positive questions, words, and images that create upward spirals of positivity.
