Summary Appreciative inquiry is a collaborative and positive approach to change developed by David Cooperrider. The approach is built on the assumption that every organisation has a 'positive core' that has contributed to its previous successes as well as its current strengths, potentials and assets. This presentation outlines how members of an organisation, such as a school community, can be involved, through collaborative storytelling and analysis, to identify their institution's positive core; a process that enhances every participants' energy, vision and actions for change. The steps will demonstrate how appreciative inquiry can be a practical leadership tool for change with a range of purposes. This presentation provides seven innovative ways that appreciativeinquiry can be applied and an Al template for use in diverse organisational settings.
