"Appreciative inquiry is about discovering the best of what is & what is possible." Jackie Stavros
Without question one of the most powerful frameworks to promote lasting change my clients have benefited from over two decades is appreciative inquiry.
In my experience these very common and 'negative' or 'avoidance' based methods do tend to get attention & do prompt change but the shift achieved often fades once the threat goes away.
The pandemic is a great example of this. As we come out the other side many of us are already reverting back to old habits and expectations, losing the gains we have made.
The alternative is a 'postive' or 'approach' based method that embraces a future state that excites & engages people to change, which is far more likely to stick.
Asking your team what has been the best of 2020 what is & what is possible in 2021 is a great place to start.
