Recognising success and positive reinforcement is powerful and can motivate one to greater success.
Appreciative InquiryTM (AITM) is an art and practice of asking unconditional positive questions to discover the best in people, organisations and the world around them. By being appreciative of and analysing how to do more of what works, this heightens one’s potential. This positive energy can also increase willingness and pace of mobilising changes, including those considered impossible.
SOARTM (Strengths-Opportunities-Aspirations-ResultsTM) is a strategic thinking and dialogue framework that complements AITM. By engaging relevant stakeholders in analysing strengths and opportunities, it facilitates creation of shared goals, aspirations and strategies and drives commitment towards achieving it.
