Virtual Series Overview

Learn how to apply Appreciative Inquiry (AI) to create the social change of our time. This moment is opportune for AI principles and tools to help focus our work on diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) issues like #BlackLivesMatters, #MeToo and rise to the call to action. So, come prepared to collaboratively inquire into what’s working and what’s possible to create the change we want to see in our workplaces, communities and family systems.

This course is designed to support you in taking DEI actions with AI principles, process and tools. We invite you to come with a DEI project (big or small, personal or professional) that will ensure your learning through immediate application. We will help you identify the individual and collective strengths within your initiative, develop generative questions to engage in listening and storytelling for positive possibilities, and ensure you have an action plan to co-create a more diverse, equitable and inclusive destiny.

We will share our expertise working in the fields of DEI and OD, including our theory of change and model published in an Inclusive Leadership book (2020, Routledge*). However, this course will not be a diversity, equity and inclusion training, an unconscious bias assessment, nor an anti-racist webinar. We will provide links to those resources, some which will form part of the pre-work, as there are incredible colleagues who have devoted their life and work to building DEI knowledge and skill set deep dives (for longer than the duration of this course permits).

This course is designed for all Appreciative Inquiry skill levels, whether you are new to AI or you’re an AI expert and yearning to incorporate DEI into your living AI practice. As BIPOC women facilitators, AI has been central to our resilience in social change work and strengthened our call-in culture work in organizations.

Learning Outcomes

As a result of participating in this 4-webinar series you will be able to:

– Actively contribute to a more diverse, equitable and inclusive world.
– Deepen your Appreciative Inquiry practice and tools.
– Work on your own DEI project at work, home or in your community using AI principles and tools.
– Establish a learning and accountability process and community for your AI DEI work.
– Create an Action Plan for your DEI project’s destiny.

Target Audience

AI practitioners and AI students, consultants, coaches, collaborative group leaders, DEI practitioners interested in AI and anyone seeking to strengthen their Appreciative Inquiry practices and tools to increase their diversity, equity and inclusion work at work, home, or in their communities.

Virtual Webinar Series

WEBINAR #1: CREATING A SAFE CONTAINER AND BUILDING A COMMUNITY OF PRACTICE – RENEW
October 5, 2022 – 9:00am-11:00am Pacific/12:00-2:00 p.m. Eastern/ and 6:00-8:00 p.m. SAST

We will share a relational theory of change and appreciative leadership model applied to DEI. We will discuss and identify various diversity markers and explore the term intersectionality, coined by Kimberlé Crenshaw, with an additional AI lens, e.g. “how might the term serve as a meaningful metaphor for bringing out the best of women by exploring layers of strengths and wisdom developed by living with multiple forms of inequality and disadvantage” (Thriving Women, Thriving World. 2019, Taos*). We will build understanding and trust through paired work and group shared agreements. The discussions will be informed in part through DEI pre-readings and personal experiences of positive change.

WEBINAR #2: PROJECT-BASED WORK – RELATE

October 12, 2022 – 9:00am-11:00am Pacific/12:00-2:00 p.m. Eastern/ and 6:00-8:00 p.m. SAST

We will review and integrate AI principles, tools, and or process into each person’s identified personal or professional DEI project. Small groups will learn and practice a strengths-based peer mentoring and coaching “Spaciousness Thinking Partners” process to build, brainstorm and peer feedback on each project. The process involves amplifying and dreaming into what is possible.

WEBINAR #3: EMBODIED LEARNING – CO-CREATE
October 19, 2022 – 9:00am-11:00am Pacific/12:00-2:00 p.m. Eastern/ and 6:00-8:00 p.m. SAST

We will review and explore how the projects, following asynchronous project building, can go further with deeper reflection and breakthroughs on limiting beliefs. We will craft and use generative questions to center living AI and DEI ethos and values in your professional and personal processes. What is emerging that informs your DEI future? How can this be practically applied? Where do you need further support? How can you share, learn and grow as an AI DEI community? What are the generative questions we need to consistently and persistently be asking to grow our DEI strengths-based practice?

WEBINAR #4: AI TOOLKIT AND THE RELATIONAL POWER OF DEI ACTION PLANS – RESOLVE

October 26, 2022 – 9:00am-11:00am Pacific/12:00-2:00 p.m. Eastern/ and 6:00-8:00 p.m. SAST

We will conclude harvesting the projects review and exploration. We will reflect on and converge all our key insights and emerging wisdom in order to solidify a vast toolbox for practical application post course. Our DEI resolve and resilience is explored by delving into the inner condition and external relationships (with both allies and antagonists) needed for successful action.

To strengthen our community of practice, supportive materials, resources and recommended readings will be made available, as well as between-session sharing of practices, questions, and reflections (e.g. new ways of thinking).

Method of Delivery

This course will be presented using Zoom over scheduled 4 weeks with a two-hour webinar per week. Prior to this event, the facilitators will email you everything you need to participate in this course, including: the Zoom meeting login information and a link to a collaboration space on Google.

Please note: these virtual webinar sessions will not by recorded for asynchronous viewing due to the experiential nature of the session and the extensive time working and learning in small groups. Asynchronous learning will focus on increasing confidence, courage and clarity through application of our unique processes. DEI resources and Appreciative Inquiry resources from the AI commons are highlighted. Additionally, the course is designed as project-based learning, so plan on your expertise and project thriving with three hours of asynchronous group work between classes. This group work is required course work.

Additionally, the course is designed as project-based learning, so plan on blocking out 6 hours of asynchronous group work outside of the 4 webinars. Total time on the course to meet the intended outcomes: 14 hours.

Appreciative Inquiry Practitioner Training (AIPT)

We live and work in an environment in which change, and transformation are the norm, not the exception.  The need to grow and flourish requires all human systems (large or small) to learn and adapt.  As Appreciative Inquiry practitioners, we are guides who support individuals, groups, organizations, and communities to examine the possibilities and be the best that they can be.  The Advanced Level Certification will take you on an experiential journey to enhance your practice by building upon your strengths.

To be of service to individuals, groups, organizations, and communities, consultants need to know and develop flexible processes that meet the desired outcomes of their clients. This course is for those who work to give human systems the internal capacity to embrace and profit from inevitable changes in the environment.

COURSE OVERVIEW:

In this highly experiential workshop, participants will become immersed in the practice of facilitating clients in identifying what gives life to their human systems in ways that build agile, adaptive, and innovative organizations.

PART 1 of the course will focus on enhancing foundational Appreciative Inquiry skills which will result in greater breadth and depth of understanding.

PART 2 will advance application skills by including Subject Matter Experts and group discussion.

Together, participants will experience an advanced community of practice where they can identify their personal strengths as AI practitioners, enhance their contracting skills, and expand their capacity to design and lead AI initiatives that result in accelerated, sustainable change with measurable outcomes. Participants will be encouraged to share their experiences and participate in dialogues drawn from their actual experiences while in the field.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

This advanced course has been developed to enhance the professional careers of individuals who have a grounding in Appreciative Inquiry; who are engaged in implementing AI initiatives in group, business, government, non-profit organizations, and communities; and who are ready to move to the next level.

Because of the advanced nature of this course, participants are expected to have already participated in the Appreciative Inquiry Facilitator Training © (AIFT) or a course equivalent to it and have experience applying using Appreciative Inquiry in their work.

LEARNING OUTCOMES:

As a fully engaged participant in the Appreciative Inquiry Practitioner Training (AIPT), you will leave the workshop better able to:

  • Master the ability to build relationships and create an environment of trust, respect, and collaboration with the organizations you serve.
  • Become familiar with the elements of organizational culture and learn how unleashing the power of culture can facilitate success.
  • Deepen your understanding and application of foundational Appreciative Inquiry processes and principles.
  • Build your understanding of a stakeholder engagement and enhance your ability to work with your clients to identify key organizational stakeholders.
  • Effectively apply Appreciative Inquiry tools to facilitate organizational transformation and participative change.
  • Develop your knowledge of organizational systems through systems thinking to assist your clients in reaching their goals.
  • Enhance your effectiveness by applying the insight gained from professionally oriented instruments and discussions which impact consulting success.

TRAINING SCHEDULE AND HOURS:

The Appreciative Inquiry Practitioner Training (AIPT) is designed to be an advanced blended learning experience.  This means that portions of the course will be delivered synchronously (in real-time through services like Zoom) and asynchronously (you read materials and participate in insight-oriented exercises at a time/pace/place that works best for you to be prepared to fully engage with trainers and colleagues in the class at the synchronous session).

The combination of synchronous and asynchronous work will equate to 33 training hours.  This includes the required Orientation session.  Participants will need to complete the program in its entirety to be eligible to earn the Appreciative Inquiry Advanced Practitioner Certification, including all synchronous sessions.

Please note that the synchronous portions of the AIPT are highly experiential and will not be recorded.  The AIPT Trainers will be utilizing breakout rooms to develop the community and trust among the participants, paired interviews, and small group

AIPT ORIENTATION:

To ensure that all participants are ready for this exciting transformational journey, your AIPT trainers will host a live Orientation via Zoom on March 22, 2022, at 9:00am Pacific Time.  The Orientation begins our community of practice, allowing you to connect with the trainers and participants, engage in the course overview, reading and activities and familiarizing you with the learning management system (LMS).

PART 1

Part 1 of the workshop consists of seven synchronous sessions.  Asynchronous sessions are delivered live via Zoom on alternate weeks and will not be recorded.

Building Relationships and Discovering What is Possible

This module focuses on key preparatory considerations which will lay the foundation for a successful engagement, setting up leader/sponsor interviews to determine readiness and commitment, generating trust and understanding, and learning the importance of gaining appreciation of the client’s goals and challenges.  Participants will be introduced to the elements needed to have an appreciative consultant mindset, focusing on the questions we ask, and the importance of building community involvement.

Deepening Understanding of Key Appreciative Inquiry Principles

This module focuses on the foundational elements and principles of Appreciative Inquiry.  The Five Generic Processes of Appreciative Inquiry are discussed, and focus is placed on developing a deep understanding of the Principles of Appreciative Inquiry and how those principles relate to transformation and systems change. The dynamics of small and large systems change are discussed, as well as how to use that knowledge to uncover the strengths of the organization.

Uncovering the Aspiration – Guiding Clients to See the Possibilities

This module focuses on generating greater competency in facilitating the AI engagement from collaborating with the client, conducting a thorough Stakeholder Analysis, training and working with the Core Team, creating, and modifying the Interview Guide, and conducting Interviews. The process of identifying life-giving forces from interviews and the development of the Provocative Proposition/Possibility Statements will be covered.

Enhancing the Toolkit – Key Tools and Concepts to Assist Clients

This module will focus on the use of specific tools and strategies which will assist clients in their journey as they create and design their destiny. Topics will include the use SOAR and its application for strategic planning, systems thinking and mapping to assist clients to uncover strengths, as well as the use of Reframing to gain perspective and clarity.

Opening the Door to Even Greater Insight and Opportunity

This module will invite participants to look deeper into themselves and strive for greater awareness and development as advanced Appreciative Inquiry practitioners.  This will be accomplished with the aid of a validated instrument which will provide personal insight into communication style, as well as a focus on the importance of healthy consultative boundaries.

Fine Tuning the Focus

This module provides participants with an opportunity to examine and enhance their own consultant practice.  This will be accomplished by  exploring how Appreciative Intelligence, attention to Active Change, and the creation of clear and concise client agreements can lead to fulfilling and successful engagements.

Training Description:

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.

Training Outcomes:

In this Appreciative Resilience Facilitator Training (ARFT) practitioners will advance and deepen their skills in:

• Facilitating complex conversations;
• Facilitating the appreciative resilience workshop;
• Facilitating the ALIVE workshop;
• Applying adult learning principals to facilitation;
• Reflecting on worldview and how it influences the approach to appreciative resilience facilitation;
• Incorporating a focus on justice, equity, diversity and inclusion into resilience conversations;
• Receiving and giving feedback on facilitation.

Training Prerequisites:

Participants must have least one of:

• Appreciative Inquiry Facilitator Training from the Center for Appreciative Inquiry;
• Certification in Appreciative Inquiry from the David L. Cooperrider Center for Appreciative Inquiry;
• Other certifications will be considered on a case by case basis.

Certification Information:

In order to qualify for certification each participant will create a portfolio on how they are taking appreciative resilience out into the world. The portfolio can arise from creating and facilitating an event; providing a workshop; facilitating complex conversations; coaching; or other facilitation practice.

The portfolio might contain:
• Outline of what you have designed and facilitated;
• Images, video, agendas, themes, outcomes;
• Personal reflections on the experience of facilitating appreciative resilience.

The portfolio can be an info-graphic, video, written document, and/or other creative form. The portfolio is due 6 months after the program.

Additional Course Information:

Jeanie and Joan will curate topics from their work in resilience and/or uplift topics from the participants that arrive. Resilience Reset is an opportunity to focus on the strengths we bring to creating an appreciative resilience practice.

Being resilient is about practicing in the every-day of our lives and work. It is not a place we get to arrive at nor a place where we can permanently reside. Being resilient does not make us immune to the challenges of work and life. Rather, being resilient lets us venture and evolve using all of our strengths in the most challenging of times.

This series is based upon Building Resilience with Appreciative Inquiry: A Leadership Journey through Hope, Despair, and Forgiveness (2018). Get your copy of the book here.

Strategic Conversation Bootcamp – Two 2.5-Hour Virtual Sessions

Event Schedule:

DAY 1

6am-8:30am PDT / 9am-11:30am EDT

THURSDAY
October 13, 2022

Please note: 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.

Strategic Conversation Bootcamp Overview:

A lack of strategic thinking and planning in organizations is costly. The greatest expense is the investment of time and resources into activities that do not support company goals or the mission. In addition, employees show up, do their work, and go home. This results in missed opportunities. Without a context for their work, employees are not inspired to think or plan creatively about process improvement, innovation, or cost savings. And anyone who has tried knows, it can be a struggle to get teams to buy-in to strategic goals, much less think and work in alignment with those goals.

Developing your leadership ability for strategic thinking and planning, coupled with the skills to engage in strategic conversations significantly improves your value as a leader. The days of hiring an outside agency to create a strategic plan for your organization are over; so too should be strategic plans developed at the top and handed down for others to implement. Organizations poised for growth and success have leaders who are adopting strategic thinking as an on-going way of doing business and strategic planning that engages employees across the whole organization as well as external stakeholders. They engage everyone in developing agile plans, cycles of experimentation and learning, innovation, and measuring actions against relevant metrics.

COURSE OUTCOMES:
This training will prepare you to engage your teams in strategic conversations that can:

Increase productivity, engagements, and organizational effectiveness;
Reduce costs, misalignment, and conflicts;
Improve customer service levels;
Innovate in the face of challenges; and
Make a positive contribution to the bottom line.

Using two very powerful methodologies (SOAR and the Appreciative Inquiry 5-D Cycle), you will have the tools to engage teams from a whole system perspective in conversations to:

Address short- and long-term challenges, systems, and innovation;
Explore strengths, dynamic capabilities, and opportunities;
Develop or re-evaluate organization’s values, vision, and mission statements;
Set goals, objectives, strategies, and action plans;
Clarify roles, relationships, and expectations; and
Track progress through regular cycles of action learning.

This bootcamp will support your capacity and develop capabilities to have strategic conversations at the level of the individual, team, division, and the whole organization or community.

Course Modules:

MODULE 1: LEARN TO SOAR

PURPOSE: Appreciate the value of strategic thinking and use SOAR to foster strategic conversations.

OBJECTIVES:

Identify common opportunities to foster strategic conversations.

PURPOSE: Give and receive feedforward on strategic conversation projects.

OBJECTIVES:

Share your prototype for your strategic conversation and receive feedforward.
Provide feedforward to improve conversation topics and questions.
Learn and improve overall strategic conversational capacity.

CONVERSATION BOOTCAMP OVERVIEW:

Conversations are at the heart of everything we do. They are key to effective communications, leadership, high performing teams, and strong relationships. We all know that they influence us, but we rarely stop to think about how much they affect our well-being and others as well as the health of our organizations and communities. Our conversations directly influence our present moment and possible futures. Are you engaging in Conversations Worth Having?

Communication. It remains the top issue for organizations, teams, and relationships. Almost everyone struggles with how to effectively communicate when they are frustrated or facing conflict. The effects of poor communication are costly. They show up in organizations as:

  • Employee disengagement, malaise, and turnover;
  • Dysfunctional teams;
  • Poor performance;
  • Inability to give and receive critical feedback; and
  • Negative attitudes, cliques, and gossip: a culture of “me”.

If you’re dealing with any of these outcomes, the Conversations Worth Having Bootcamp will give you the skills and tools to turn them around. This program is grounded in Appreciative Inquiry, one of the most widely used positive change approaches. Two simple Appreciative Inquiry practices can turn your entire culture around, creating a culture of conversations worth having.

Following this workshop, you will have tools to establish communication practices that will support productivity, engagement, high performance teams, regular feedback, positivity, and a culture of “we.”

COURSE OUTCOMES:

You will walk away prepared to:

  • Keep your cool when you want to explode!
  • Effectively challenge assumptions and preconceptions, including yours.
  • Deal with conflict quickly and effectively.
  • Fuel productive and meaningful engagement.
  • Communicate successfully with people who hold negative attitudes or defensive positions.
  • Give and receive critical feedback in ways that promote learning and high performance.
  • Ask the kind of questions that deepen understanding, strengthen connections, and inspire possibility.
  • Talk with colleagues in ways that invite them to collaborate on projects and strategic outcomes.
  • Listen with genuine curiosity.
  • Frame any conversation, even one around a highly complex problem, to inspire creative and innovative thinking and solutions.

Course Modules:

MODULE 1: THE POWER OF CONVERSATION

PURPOSE: Understand the nature of our conversations, how they affect human being and doing, and develop your ability to choose.

OBJECTIVES:

Experience the nature of your conversations and the effects they have on you and others.
Choose to be intentional with your conversations: stay calm under stress.
Use mindfulness tools to shift reactionary communication to deliberate conversation.

MODULE 2: THE ART OF ASKING QUESTIONS

PURPOSE: Understand the basics of Appreciative Inquiry and improve your ability to ask generative questions to foster effective communication.

OBJECTIVES:

Experience the impact Appreciative Inquiry has on individual and organizational capacity.
Choose curiosity over knowing and assuming.
Use generative questions to shift the dynamics of personal and workplace communication problems.

MODULE 3: INTENTIONAL FRAMING
