Appreciative Inquiry - Positive Change in My Life
Dan Corbett, Management Consultant, Canada

Last October, I decided to make a positive change in my own life. I had a successful career in both the private sector at the executive level in human resources and quality systems and in implementing organizational change.
I decided to take a sabbatical from employment to take time to assess my “next phase” in work life. I researched current thinking about change, about quality and leadership. I became very interested in the growing movement on strengths based change and how that focus could bring positive and transformative changes in organizations. I decided to enroll in an executive program in Appreciative Inquiry at Case Western Reserve University.
I now understand how Appreciative Inquiry is very supportive of continuous quality improvement and of organizations as human systems. I see Appreciative Inquiry as a way for organizational leaders to capture the human spirit in their organization to build a better future by focusing on a strengths based approach to strategic planning and change.

Organisations as Human Systems

Mr Corbett, those are nice insights you have developed! What elements did you come upon focusing on the human spirit of organisations within strategic planning and change? Does giving incentives like trainings/conferences to employees play any role in this approach on strengths? Thanks. Regards.
