Each one of our bootcamps is heavily based on appreciative inquiry and more or less follows the four D approach of Discovery, Dream, Design, and Delivery.  The participants discover their strengths first and then bring to the fore the strengths of their organization and the actual and potential allies and partners.

What does Appreciative Inquiry do to the Participant?

Appreciative inquiry takes the energy of the “positive present”—with participant , the best possible interpretation of his meaning to his/ her  people—and uses it to build vision of a positive, desired future, one that is grounded in reality. It then helps people mobilize forces for change to turn that vision into reality—to help the participant grow into a responsible, fulfilled person.
