Appreciative Inquiry (AI) - Unleashing Organizational Potential and Learning Capacity

Date/Time: 

2016-07-09 14:00 to 17:00

Location: 

"Rm Z212, HK Polytechnic University, Hunghom"

Appreciative Inquiry (AI) is a strengths-based process for building teamwork, trust and collaboration, enhancing employee engagement, generating a spirit of creativity and innovation, and ensuring results oriented commitment to a shared mission, vision and strategy. It is a proven methodology for leading positive change in organizations and communities.

In this event, we have invited Ms. Dorothy Tsui, a certified program trainer in AI, to share with us how Appreciative Inquiry can support organizations to unleash potential, bring out the best in people, and replicate success through organizational learning.  Dorothy will cover:

  • Why using Appreciative Inquiry in organizational learning and development - Essence and Value
  • How Appreciative Inquiry facilitates organizational learning, unleashes potential, and creates concrete results simultaneously
  • Case studies of using Appreciative Inquiry for multi-level organizational learning by leveraging collective strengths and best practices
  • A taste of the appreciative approach
  • Where Appreciative Inquiry meets Knowledge Management - how AI can support our KM practice

Following are some articles of reference on Appreciative Inquiry:

Review:

Some comments was written by in Andreas Sher's blog after the event:

  • listen to others without formulating any response
  • solve the problem, co-creation begins with a shared mental model by listening to one another
  • strenghen-based rather than deficit based problem solving
  • look beyond that to what we are going right and build on that

For more details, please refer to Andreas' blog at http://kmp.hk/blogs/appreciation-appreciative-inquiry and http://kmp.hk/blogs/lets-talk

Selected feedbacks from participants:

 

"A good approach for management to make weaknesses of staff irrelevant, or to strengthen their stengths"

 

"A way to motivate people to find their own strength to leverage their weakness"

 

"A practical and useful tool learning session"

 

"View the scenario in the strength point of view, not the weakness"

 

"Positive re-enforcement by recognising current strength and hence a way to cover the weakness by self-fulfilment"

 

"A good approach for management to make weaknesses of staff irrelevant, or to strengthen their stengths"

 

"Great stuff.....too late to know about this 'art' being practised for so long already"
