Appreciative Inquiry Champions training – Class of 2015

Fourteen people attended our ILM approved Appreciative Inquiry Champions Programme in St Asaph, North Wales. Participants were from a range of backgrounds within health and social care. We explored the theory and practice of AI, together with taking participants through the 5D process. On the last day everyone had the opportunity to practice a presentation on the principles of AI, together with sharing ideas about how they could put the process into practice. Most importantly of all – we had lots of fun!

Following the completion of the 3 day course I feel confident to begin the process of using AI. This has been a varied and thought provoking 3 days that I am sure will have a lasting benefit in my professional practice and further studies

The Appreciative Inquiry course in October was perfectly timed as we embark on major changes to the way we work. Instead of asking people ‘what is the matter with you’ we are asking ‘what matters to you’ and in order to do that in an effective and meaningful way we need to engage and engage well. AI provides us with a process and framework to achieve that. The seeds have been sown!

My ‘dream’ for the course was that I would come out of the 3 days with skills, knowledge and confidence to run an AI process. I would say broadly, with a bit more reading and thought, I do have that.

This is great 3 day course which provides a fresh, inspiring and highly applicable approach to moving forward in a positive way.

This course has been extremely enlightening and has helped put some of the current training and practice into context.

A great opportunity to look at ‘problem solving’ in a new and positive way – turning it on its head – recognition that problems are a desire for something else. Together we can create that ‘something else’.
