Why AI and EI?

Lou Christie is certified in Appreciative Inquiry and Emotional Intelligence techniques. He has adoped these because they focus on what works rather than on what is 'wrong' with an organization.

Interactions that are based on the positive are measurably more effective.

"My experience has shown me that when a group recognizes the positive, that problems get reframed - and progress is made."
Appreciative Inquiry (AI)

Changing today’s organization by appreciating and inquiry of yesterday’s success for tomorrow’s greatness.

“The task of leadership is to create an alignment of strengths . . . making a system’s weaknesses irrelevant.”
Peter Drucker . . . from an interview by David Cooperrider - creator and originator of the Appreciative Inquiry process.

“What does it take to transform impossible into possible? All it takes is a change in your thinking.”

Ralph Marston, author The Daily Motivator.

The quotation is at the heart of AI. When you elect to use the
Appreciative (1. Valuing, the act of recognizing the best in people and the world around us; affirming past and present strengths, success, and potentials; to perceive those things that give life to living systems. 2. To increase in value) Inquiry (1. The act of exploration and discovery. 2. To ask question; to be open to seeing new potentials and possibilities) process, you begin to change the way it is to a new way of being.

“Inquiry naturally gives rise to action that is clear, kind, and fearless.”
Katie Byron, author of Loving What Is.

The energy of AI creates for change is from current and past successes and inclusion. The momentum builds on itself to create a bright new sustainable outcome. An outcome that will carry success forward for untold years.
