Using positive approaches to create results and a strong team

Introduction & Background:

Appreciative Leadership is the capacity to mobilize creative potential and turn it into positive power—to set in motion positive ripples of confidence, energy, enthusiasm, and performance.

This course will explore the five strategies of the Appreciative Leadership Model and how a leader can fully engage their team through powerful, positive questions and strengths-focused leadership practices. Participants will engage in practical and interactive activities to experience the mental shift involved in an “appreciative flip” and try out actionable tools to strengthen their leadership.
