About Center for Appreciative Inquiry

The Center for Appreciative Inquiry uses Ai as our "engine" for driving positive change. We work with schools, colleges/universities, gov't agencies, businesses, and NGOs to focus their planning & thinking for full engagement, empowerment & collaboration that is relevant & action-oriented. Since 1989, we have developed training and coaching programs for immediate and long-term impact, focusing on changing workplace practices rather than trying to change people.
