Reflections is both a workbook and practical resource. It’s a combination of appreciative journaling, a gratitude diary and skills and techniques to develop your Appreciative Inquiry practice. Developed as a result of Appreciating People’s recent work – particularly on the award-winning Learning from Excellence programme, it is a powerful tool for developing the appreciative approach.
Reflections gives users a snapshot of the benefits and strengths that are emerging as people learn about AI and begin to apply it. It is designed to inspire you to find what focusing on your own strengths can bring. Reflecting on day-to-day actions leads to new learnings and insights into the things we do well.
It has been created for anyone who wants to be an Appreciative Inquirer – for those who have recently discovered the approach, and experienced practitioners who want to expand and deepen the way in which they work.
Within these pages you’ll find background on AI’s philosophy and principles; tools, techniques and exercises to reflect on and deepen your AI practice; and real-life examples of AI in action alongside appreciative and gratitude journals. It gives users a strong framework to support themselves, colleagues and friends and family, underpinning the learnings of positive psychology with practical, everyday activities.
