APPRECIATIVE INQUIRY: A POSITIVE REVOLUTION IN CHANGE​

PROFESSOR DAVID COOPERRIDER, Case Western Reserve University, USA

We’re thrilled to confirm that the world’s foremost authority on strengths based, positive change, Professor David Cooperrider, will be joining us at Workplace Wellness Summit 2019 for a keynote plus a full day, in-depth workshop!

Explore Professor Cooperrider’s acclaimed, cutting-edge Appreciative Inquiry (AI) methodology which has helped create a positive revolution in organisational change, and built a framework that organisations across the globe have used to flourish. Instead of focusing on finding the problems, AI asks stakeholders to explore what the organisation is doing right and how strengths can be recognised and capitalised on.

Using data from over 2,000 appreciative inquiry interviews with pathbreaking positive institutions in a study of “business as an agent of world benefit, David employs a myriad of rich and powerful stories to illustrate that working to solve humanity’s greatest social and environmental challenges brings out the best in us and our institutions!

Workplace Wellness Summit 2019 offers delegates an amazing opportunity to learn from the master, on a rare visit to Australia!
