Description

Workshop Title: Exploring Appreciate Inquiry

Guest Speaker: Christine Gilkes MBPs - Founder of gluetogether Limited.


Description:

Christine Gilkes will take us through a practical tour of the 5 D Model of Appreciative Inquiry. With applied examples, hints and tips that will help all attendees to explore AI, Christine will help all present to relate and refer to their own skillsets, and hopefully learn some new ways of working as a result.

We’ve all experienced how draining a conventional approach to change can be, where a problem is identified, followed by a diagnostic focussed on the problem and finally a search for a palatable solution amongst the problems that have been uncovered. This approach not only emphasises and amplifies problems it drains away the energy needed for innovative work and creative thinking.

Appreciative Inquiry is grounded in positive psychology. It starts with a celebration of success, invites conversations about what really matters, makes people more open about what needs to be done, builds energy, strengthens resilience and mobilises change by focusing on the organisation’s core strengths and using those strengths to shape the future.

Our gluetogether values are Playful, Maverick, Extraordinary, Energetic and Curious so expect interaction, practical and fun. Why not come with an idea of something you or a client would like to improve and focus on making a small change in your behaviour.

Event Details:

The event is supported by both the UK Association for Solution Focused Practice
(www.ukasfp.co.uk) and the Association for Solution
Focused in Organisations (http://sfio.org/). The best hopes for our meeting
is that we continue to develop a network of SF Practitioners and enthusiasts in
our area, and I would be grateful if you would share this invitation with
anyone you think would be interested, copying me for information.

The idea of this event is that anyone who is interested in SFP can meet with
likeminded souls for mutual education, information and the sharing of ideas
and support.

The meeting will be held on Monday 17th July, 2017. Lunch will NOT be provided, nor will refreshments. We will take regular breaks and avail of the cafe facilities next to our meeting room.

We will meet in the Community Hub which is on the Fourth Floor of John Lewis's new department store in Victoria Gate, Leeds. This is a short walk from Leeds Railway and Bus stations, and also has a multi-storey carpark adjacent, though parking there all day is an expensive option. This meeting room is provided free of charge for community projects, hence my request that we use the cafe for refreshments and food.

This meeting will be run at no charge to members of UKASFP and SFiO and as this is our first meeting at this venue, guest will also be welcomed with no charge. We will discuss future meeting arrangements at this meeting once we have experienced this new venue.

There is only space for 24 delegates so please book now to be sure of your place.

Please share this with anyone you know who may be interested.
