Weatherhead School of Management

Transform your organization with appreciative inquiry

Picture of a discussion group

Discover. Dream. Design. Create your destiny. 

These activities form the core of appreciative inquiry (AI), a revolutionary approach to strategic change and sustainable growth for organizations. To be effective, change requires speed, flawless execution and buy-in at all levels. AI accomplishes this by engaging all stakeholder groups in a collaborative approach to decision-making. It is a process of inquiry that challenges the whole system to maximize the positive potential for cultural change, strategic planning, leadership development, joint ventures and alliances, team building, community development and dramatic whole-system change.

Join Weatherhead Executive Education for a 3.5-day workshop and discover how and why AI transforms organizations through live simulations, case studies and illustrations.
