Appreciative Inquiry with Jackie Stavros and Cheri Torres

by | Dec 10, 2021 | Podcast, Winning Well

Conversations are the soul of leadership. We all know that conversations influence us, but we rarely stop to think about how much impact they have on our well-being and our ability to thrive. The Art of Appreciative Inquiry gives you the ability to have conversations that truly matter, build better relationships, and achieve more together.

In this episode, Jackie Stavros and Cheri Torres give you two practices and five principles to create great conversations. And show how Appreciative Inquiry (AI)—one of the most widely used approaches for fostering positive change for individuals, groups, organizations, and communities—can help you communicate better and flourish in all areas of your life.


Appreciative Inquiry: Conversations Worth Having

What kind of conversations are worth having, and how to use appreciative inquiry to fuel productive and meaningful engagements.

Jackie and Cheri take us back to their earliest memory as a leader.

The two-axis process with four different kinds of conversations that we might find ourselves in.

What does it mean to be above or below the line? How can we be very intentional about where you are yourself?

What the heck is a generative question and how do these questions create shared understanding?

How to boil down positive framing to move towards what we want instead of either trying to fix what we don’t want or move away from what we don’t want.

Questions that I might start with to practice appreciative inquiry myself, and that will help me approach other people, my team relationships in an appreciative mindset.

Why appreciative inquiry is not about being positive all the time and is about adding value.

In instances of polarization, how can AI help us?
