Appreciative Coaching is a co-creative process for human transformation. Though collaborative inquiry, dialogue and reflection, it enables people to integrate the best of their past with their strengths, values, and visions; and to bring forth positively powerful performance and results. Master appreciative coaches are catalysts, curators and witnesses to their clients’ identity creation and recreation. They are able to establish trust and rapport, to ask provocative and life-affirming questions, and to listen with an open heart and a nonjudgmental mind. Recognizing that words create worlds they are able to mindfully reveal limits and metaphorically build bridges to new possibilities.

During this workshop you will learn how to: apply Appreciative Inquiry principles and process to coaching, craft appreciative questions, listen to discover life-affirming metaphors and seeds of potential, as well as compose strength based stories.

As a result of this workshop, you will gain greater awareness of your own “pro-creative” presence and enhance your capacities to:

  • Apply strength-based and Appreciative Inquiry principles in coaching
