Registration includes: pre-workshop reading, five full days of instruction, lunch, instructional materials and Appreciative Inquiry Coaching Certification mentoring and support for one year.
To support the learning of this highly experiential workshop, registration is limited to 18 participants.
Please note: Your trainer is available as mentor to you during your practicum – at no extra cost. They will also be part of the panel that reviews your practicum once it has been submitted. It is standard practice for the panel to engage you in a conversation about your work once you have submitted your practicum. Typically, they will respond with questions, to deepen their and your mutual understanding of and learning about AI. The practicum review is therefore a dialogical and interactive process.

"I appreciate the willingness of our trainers to share their skills by demonstrating key concepts authentically, with topics that were real to them. I felt welcomes to express my questions & support or my journey."
"I appreciate the openness, the coaching demonstrations - the presences and calmness allowing each to learn at their own level - pausing so you had time to reflect and absorb the 'how to'."
"The course has nurtured, appreciatively, a paradigm shift in my understanding and practice of coaching and being."
"I loved the integrated duet between learning and doing; it was very profound and transformed my notion of what learning is."

Appreciative Inquiry Coaching Training (AICT)
San Diego, California / October 9-13, 2017
Appreciative Coaching is a revelatory and generative conversation that enlivens, amplifies, and sustains the positive core - source of the energy and intelligence of life - of both client and coach. This relationship cultivates new possibilities, health and fulfillment, accelerating us to our highest and deepest good.
This 5-day course will comprise a full Appreciative Inquiry into our collective experience of Appreciative Inquiry and Coaching. Together we will explore and experience each of the 5 D’s as it relates to one-on-one relationships for generative conversation. The practicum, which participants will submit for certification, will embody “Destiny” as you apply the lessons taught during this course.
The Appreciative Inquiry Coaching Training is not a problem-solving coaching approach, rather it looks at discovering and co-constructing the client’s positive core – what it is that connects them to life, energy, and possibility and allows them to thrive. Through the affirmative framework of AI, discover how to deepen and enhance both your personal sense of yourself as well as your skills for generative one-on-one conversations.
Individuals who participate in all 5 days of the AICT and complete & submit a practicum are eligible for certification as an Appreciative Coach. Practicums must be completed within one year of the AICT attended.
The Appreciative Inquiry Coaching Training is approved by the International Coach Federation (ICF) for Continuing Coaching Education (CCE). CCEs give coaches an opportunity to continue their professional development. Coaches will learn how to use the AI process, originally designed for use with an organization, system or group, as a process for coaching someone one-on-one.
Prerequisites for this advanced level training Include:
This Appreciative Inquiry coaching course is highly experiential - each participant pairs up with a coachee and a coach to practice and experience the skills demonstrated by the trainers. Each practice session ends with time for reflection and discussion. Your trainers will provide theoretical input (supported by audio-visual material) to enhance your experience.DAY ONE - EXPERIENCING APPRECIATIVE COACHING
DAYS TWO to FIVE INCLUDE EXPERIENCING ALL THE D's:
To become certified by the Center for Appreciative Inquiry as an Appreciative Coach, you will participate in an Appreciative Inquiry Coaching Training © (AICT) and then complete a Supervised Practicum and Narrative Summary. The Supervised Practicum and Narrative Summary must be completed within one year of the AICT you attend. Your AICT Trainer(s) will be available by email and/or phone for free consultations throughout your Practicum.
We start each day on time and work diligently to maintain the schedule, honoring the commitment to the learning experience. We have found full participation to be the most productive for the participants and the trainers. To obtain a letter of completion (and to be eligible for consideration for certification) each participant must complete 30 training hours. Days one through five begin at 8:30 a.m. for networking. The training sessions will begin promptly at 9:00 a.m. and end at 5:00 p.m. each day. Each day has a morning and afternoon session; a morning and afternoon break; and lunch.**
**If you have special dietary needs, please email Melissa Robaina.
Outcomes - Certification
At the end of the five-day training and completion of a supervised practicum, participants will be eligible to receive a certificate as an Appreciative Inquiry Coach. Credentialed coaches will receive a letter to document their completion of an approved CCE Program.
