Appreciative Inquiry (AI) is an approach that is increasingly used with groups and individuals as well as within organisational and community contexts. To a large degree, AI is seen as a methodology and yet it is profoundly relational in its nature when considered from the perspective of the principles that inform the approach. If this is the case, then what does that mean for us as practitioners? How do we develop our capacity to work relationally in service of greater flexibility, creativity and growth?
This workshop will explore the challenges and opportunities that lie in seeking to develop a more relationally-focussed approach in which our physical and emotional selves can be more fully recognised. In doing this, we develop a kind of ‘relational knowing’ in which creativity and intuition can become more confidently employed.
