**Session 1, labeled Appreciative Inquiry + Visuals: Free Mini-Session (part 1), is a free, 30-minute workshop that will be offered multiple times throughout the year. We invite you to visit our event calendar to find a date that works best for you. If you are unable to attend a live session, you can also meet this pre-requisite by watching a recording of the event. You can enjoy the recording here.

Please note: While live attendance will give you the greatest return on your investment of time, all virtual sessions will be recorded and saved for participants who are unable to attend a scheduled webinar. Links to the recordings will be provided so that participants can view/listen to the recording at a time that works best for them.

EVENT DESCRIPTION:

Combining visuals with the facilitated Appreciative Inquiry (AI) process increases participant engagement in meetings through a shared vision of understanding—not to mention, enjoyment! Imagine where you fall in a Venn diagram. Whether you are an AI Facilitator who wants to add visuals to your toolbox, or an experienced Visual Practitioner who wants to integrate AI into your work, the combination of the two offer a rich, interactive environment for both online or in-person meetings.

This course is designed to give you a variety of visual tools, templates and exercises that align with each step of the Appreciative Inquiry 5D Framework. Following the framework, you can create custom templates to use as facilitation tools designed to meet your clients’ desired outcomes. We will explore these complimentary approaches with others in the AI and/or visual field to deepen your understanding and bring value to your projects.

The live, online sessions will allow you to experience the process as a participant and give you the insights to apply to your facilitative practice. Participants do not need to know how to draw, just have an open mind to drawing. We will cover several ways to make meetings visual without drawing live in front of your client. Nor do participants need to be certified AI facilitators or coaches. Regardless of your skill level, your interest and passion will drive your curiosity. Together we will dive deep into the value of visuals in AI facilitated meetings.

LEARNING OUTCOMES:

Each session offers a new library of resources to support your visual AI facilitation efforts.

SESSION 1: DEFINE/DISCOVER (pre-requisite for this course)

Participants must complete this session prior to the start of this event. Session 1, labeled Appreciative Inquiry + Visuals: Free Mini-Session (part 1), teaches participants how visuals and Appreciative Inquiry can be used to visually facilitate a discovery meeting with a client. This session will be offered several times prior to the course. We invite you to visit our event calendar to find a date that works best for you. You may attend one or more live or watch a recording of one of the live sessions.

SESSION 2: DREAM

Together we will leverage a series of visual templates to dream about the common desired outcomes of meetings and what you would like to gain out of the course.

SESSION 3: DESIGN

Co-creation is key! We will custom design visual templates based on the AI questions we develop to engage participants. These will be shared to increase our library of resources.

SESSION 4: DESTINY/DELIVER

There are many analog and digital visual tools used to support meaningful conversations. We will determine the appropriate tool for the job based on efficacy and your comfort level.

Visual templates and exercises shared in this class can be further customized for your use with any individual, team, organization or community. Additional resources will be shared should you want to expand your AI + Visuals practice. Participants in the course have full access to the instructor via email between sessions 2-4 for feedback.
