Appreciative Inquiry Facilitator Training

Las Vegas, Nevada

Registration is now open for this powerful four day training. At the end of this intensive Appreciative Inquiry Facilitator Training (AIFT), participants will have the skills and foundation to facilitate Appreciative Inquiry sessions. Learn to guide organizations, groups and communities to consciously and deliberately shift their collective way of being and seeing to an appreciative approach, that will help them focus on what's right in their organization, group or community, rather than on what's wrong. Learn to guide them to  deeply inquire into what's right and why, and then find ways of intentionally creating more of what's right in their organization, group or community.

This program has been developed and is presented by the Center for Appreciative Inquiry to provide a cost effective way for communities, people and organizations to dialogue and action for creating positive change.

This training is designed for:
Leaders in businesses and corporations, community development, educational organizations governmental organizations, and nonprofit organizations--in short, anyone who wants to learn how to facilitate Appreciative Inquiry.
