Examples of Appreciative Inquiry Principles
Aimee Mullens gives such a powerful and moving TED talk.
Her examples of Appreciative Inquiry Principles are evident in her story. She opens with examples of the Constructionist Principle: how words create worlds and the role we all play in co-creating our realities and defining each other.
She advocates the need to honor the wholeness, possibility and potency of ourselves and each other. She asks us to open ourselves up to and embrace our adversities, rather than sweep them under the carpet.
She reminds us from her own story that we live up OR down to others' image of us, and how positive imagery leads to positive outcomes. She is such an example of nurturing the human spirit, keeping hope, seeing the beauty, valuing curiosity … and so much more.
I highly recommend this video.
