4 D's Cycle
"What gives life?"

"What should be the ideal?"
"How to empower, learn, and adjust/improvise?"
Video from David Cooperrider
Lets take a break for a moment to think about those pictures from the beginning...
Constructionist Principle
The way we know is fateful
Reality is socially constructed through a language

Appreciate - Valuing; the act of recognizing the best in people or the world around us; affirming past and present strengths, successes, and potentials; to perceive those things that give life (health, vitality, excellence) to living systems.
Inquire -
1. The act of exploration and discovery
2. To ask questions; to be open to seeing new potentials and possibilities

Principle of Simultaneity
Change begins at the moment you ask the question
Poetic Principle
Organizations are an open book
Our choice of what we study determines what we discover

Deep change equals change in active images of the future
Our image of the future shapes the present
Positive Principle
The more positive the question, the greater and longer-lasting the change
Positive questioning leads to positive change
Problem Solving
Identify the problem
Conduct root cause analysis
Brainstorm solutions and analyze
Develop action plans
Appreciative Inquiry
Appreciate "What is" (What gives life?)
Imagine "What might be"
Determine "What should be"
Create "What will be"
Old VS New
Metaphor: Organizations are problems to be solved
Metaphor: Organizations are a solution/mystery to be embraced
