How We do it
Whole system change informed and inspired by the best in
Guided by the Appreciative Inquiry 4-D Cycle
Designing renders visible our hopes and dreams; it is the first signal of human intentions.
Innovation sparks from everywhere, when we move leadership away from top down and away from bottom up, towards "whole-system-all-at-once" designing. Here, team members at Clarke re-design their culture through images of a newly imagined team member journey. Facilitated by FLI.
Understanding the best of what is and what has been by asking the right questions. During discovery an organization maps out its positive core.
Imagining a more inspiring, positive, life-giving organization and world. Dreaming lifts up the best of what has been and invites people to imagine what could be. To challenge the status quo.
Designing provides the mechanisms through which an organization can bring their greatest hopes and dreams to life.
Initiating cross-functional, system-wide projects that launch a wide range of goal-driven changes. During the destiny cycle, Appreciative Inquiry becomes a system-wide function of all processes and groups to enhance the organization's capacity for ongoing positive change.
Appreciative Inquiry creates a flourishing cycle of inquiry and innovation throughout all aspects of your organization.
