The Mechanism Behind Appreciative Inquiry

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.
