Sally Beth Shore is passionate about Appreciative Inquiry and uses it to help teams and individuals discover their strengths, use them to design new possibilities, and move towards them with intention in her work as facilitator, trainer, and speaker.
As an Appreciative Inquiry practitioner, she has helped plan and facilitate AI processes with groups ranging in size from 8 - 800. Clients and collaborators include EasterSeals, the World Positive Education Accelerator, and the Children's Home Society of North Carolina. She is an animated storyteller and recently she presented at the 2019 World Appreciative Inquiry Conference in Nice, France.
Ordained in 2013, Rev. Shore currently serves as an interim minister in Brevard, NC, and has worked with 5 other Unitarian Universalist congregations. In her work with congregations, she uses AI to help people in finding resilience, hope, and positive meaning. She also enjoys working to create services of celebration, memorials, and other rites of passage that touch hearts, heads, and bodies. Her skills as a preacher inform her motivational talks around human resources, and vision. Earlier in life, her love of the earth, people, and science led her to become a college environmental science instructor and work in the recycling industry. She sees her call to the ministry as an expansion of her earlier work to nurture life and human systems.
A graduate of the human potential movement, she is fascinated by people and our world. She shares her thoughts at www.wonderofeachother.com
