Weatherhead Executive Programs in Appreciative Inquiry

Discover. Dream. Design. Create your Destiny.

These principles are at the core of Appreciate Inquiry (AI), a revolutionary approach to strategic change and sustainable growth for organizations. To be effective, change requires speed, flawless execution and buy-in at all levels. AI accomplishes this by engaging all stakeholder groups in a collaborative approach to decision-making. It is a process of inquiry that challenges the whole system to maximize the positive potential for cultural change, strategic planning, leadership development, joint ventures and alliances, team building, community development and dramatic whole system change. Come to Weatherhead and experience a systematic discovery of what gives “life” to a living system when it is most dynamic, most effective, and most constructively capable in economic, ecological, and human terms.
