The Mechanism Behind Appreciative Inquiry
Balaji, HR Consultant, India, Member
For me, AI is about helping systems and players therein to re-align their neural networks in the direction of 'what works here' rather than 'what does not work'.
The unconscious is such a powerful force in our organisational and individual destinies that the more we focus on problems, the more you will encounter them. Anybody who has brought up children will vouch for it - the more you warn the child that she will break the glass, the more prone she is to do it.
This is not to say that, we can wish away problems. On the contrary, the approach will provide us the right anti-dotes to deal with problems when they occur.
 

 
The Mechanism Behind Appreciative Inquiry

Very interesting observation. I know that there have been some scientific publications around what happens to our brains when we look at what is possible rather than what is not possible.
I think this also links to the work of Barbara Frederickson on positive psychology.
 

 
The Unconscious Mind
Matil
@JC de Jong: With regards to what Mr Balaji brings in, the working of the human mind and how to use our unconscious to bring about positive results is what metaphysical philosophers and scientists tap into.
They provide us with theories such as the ones from Deepak Chopra in Quantum Healing, The Secret and other early Asian teachings.
It is time we start to make more and better use of that profound knowledge! Thank you all!
 

 
The Unconcious Mind - Continued

Thank you both for your contributions! And yes, I'm familiar with Deepak Chopra's work and I couldn't agree more that we should investigate/study the wisdom found in the ancient teachings to help us understand the (deeper) layers of our minds.
 

 
Understanding our Minds
Matil
Since 1998 I am studying some areas of metaphysics and it is argued that our thoughts affect matter by simply adjusting our thoughtforms and attitudes about our self, others, our organizations our world.
I see links with the AI philosophy and methods to help people, systems develop for betterment. Thank you all!

Wow! I really love the concept of AI. I have recently started using it to train my staff and it is already bearing fruits...
