Reflections is both a workbook and practical resource. It’s a combination of appreciative journaling, a gratitude diary and skills and techniques to develop your Appreciative Inquiry practice. Developed as a result of Appreciating People’s recent work – particularly on the award-winning Learning from Excellence programme, it is a powerful tool for developing the appreciative approach.
Reflections gives users a snapshot of the benefits and strengths that are emerging as people learn about AI and begin to apply it. It is designed to inspire you to find what focusing on your own strengths can bring. Reflecting on day-to-day actions leads to new learnings and insights into the things we do well.
It has been created for anyone who wants to be an Appreciative Inquirer – for those who have recently discovered the approach, and experienced practitioners who want to expand and deepen the way in which they work.
Within these pages you’ll find background on AI’s philosophy and principles; tools, techniques and exercises to reflect on and deepen your AI practice; and real-life examples of AI in action alongside appreciative and gratitude journals. It gives users a strong framework to support themselves, colleagues and friends and family, underpinning the learnings of positive psychology with practical, everyday activities.
What people say:
Three years ago we embarked on a journey to integrate gratitude and appreciation into our culture. The How to Be More Awesome journal supports successful transition for our students and our work together has grown in scope and depth. Working with Appreciating People, we have integrated AI questioning techniques into our coaching programme and to
develop colleagues; this year we are piloting our own Learning from Excellence programme. Integrating AI is evident in the way students and colleagues support one another and this underpins our continued success.
