Appreciative Inquiry (AI) is a process that focuses on leveraging an organization’s core strengths rather than seeking to overcome or minimize its weaknesses. As AI becomes a regular way of working, individuals at all levels and all functions identify best practices that the organization can build on in order to respond to new challenges. In this way, organizations, teams, and individuals can achieve and sustain positive change and create truly extraordinary organizations that contribute to the well-being of their stakeholders, their communities, and the planet.
