Appreciative Inquiry


Focus on what’s working and how to build on it

Appreciative Inquiry is one of the fastest growing areas of organisational development- helping teams and departments identify how to build out from success and scale up. It is also extremely useful for large-scale engagement exercises among staff or stakeholders as part of a strategic consultation.

Who is the programme for?

This programme is designed for managers or team leaders who want to engage colleagues, volunteers or beneficiaries in a process to improve an aspect of work activity or manage a change process.

“I have always been impressed with both the input from =mc and the impact it’s had on our business. Following the presentation workshop, for instance, we went on to win a number of major contracts.”

John Jolly, CEO, Blenheim CDP
