Each of us lives in a complex and unpredictable world and we are called upon again and again to help others be resilient and to be resilient ourselves.
Bring your skill as an Appreciative Inquiry Facilitator to uplifting and sustaining your workplace and beyond with appreciative resilience. Appreciative resilience is a resilience practice built from the tenets of appreciative inquiry and from powerful resilience practices.
This Appreciative Resilience Facilitator Training (ARFT) is designed for appreciative inquiry practitioners who want to deliver the Appreciative Resilience workshop and the ALIVE workshop for clients and colleagues and/or foster appreciative resilience informally with organizations, teams and individuals. It is also excellent facilitation training for those seeking to facilitate in complex situations.
In this facilitator training you will delve into the facilitation practices and considerations for delivering two powerful resilience processes. The first process is the appreciative resilience practice that uses appreciative inquiry to examine how you can foster hope and a hopeful view as a foundation of resilience; utilize your strengths in times of challenge and despair; and undertake the will and power to forgive. The second process is the ALIVE practice which is a powerful tool to use in challenging times. ALIVE stands for Appreciate, Love, Inquire, Venture, and Evolve. This tool uses appreciative generative questions to examine resilience.
Both of these appreciative resilience processes are built from the practices of appreciative inquiry and are based upon the appreciative resilience work and writing of Joan McArthur-Blair and Jeanie Cockell.
People often think of resilience as a response to weathering challenges but in appreciative resilience work the aim is to create a sustaining practice of resilience.
