AI Benefits

Mercia, AI is not merely positive thinking. It is much beyond that. It is a profound organizational development approach and one of its major benefits is the amount of energy it mobilizes in comparison to problem solving methods.
My favorite tool are succes stories. I have seen transformations in teams happen while I was standing in front of them.

AI Advantages

Problem solving is a negative approach where you deliberately look for something that isn't working or going wrong. It's a search for weaknesses. On the other hand, AI is a positive approach where you look for strengths in the form of stories.
Stories can be about successful results achieved or when the person felt very effective even though a positive outcome wasn't accomplished. The transformation comes when storytellers realize because they did it in the past, they can do it again going forward.
