Appreciative Inquiry Gathering
August 23, 2017
Time: 9-10:30 AM PT
Presenter: Tom Palmer
Gaia U has crossed the threshold of its 10-year anniversary as a pioneer of online regenerative action learning. We’re now being called upon to adapt to the many changes taking place in the field and transition to the next stage of our developmental growth. Appreciative Inquiry (AI) is an approach to organization development that engages a diversity of stakeholders in the change process, focusing on coming together to 1) appreciate and value the best of “what is,” 2) envisioning “what might be,” and 3) dialoguing “what should be.” Please join us for this call and share your valuable perspective and experience as we co-evolve and co-create the future of Gaia U!
