HAPPY NEW YEAR 2023
TO FOCUS ON OUR STRENGTHS
2023, the year where we have the choice to break away from our problem-oriented reflexes, gaps, and malfunction analysis. This year, we have the opportunity to take a new path, that of intentional resource seeking, of what works and what brings life.
This is a choice, not an obligation, but those who make this choice quickly feel more confident, lighter, and more innovative when facing challenges, more alive, and more learning in action, and ultimately more successful in their missions. Imagine a world where we turn towards our strengths and successes instead of focusing on our weaknesses and failures. This is what we can achieve by choosing a resource-oriented reflex.
So, this year, let's leave the problem-oriented reflex behind and make the choice to embrace a future full of possibilities through a resource-oriented reflex. It is time to take our lives into our own hands and create our own destiny.
Let's go! We will be by your side to help you overcome your challenges by helping you intentionally focus on your strengths and aspirations.

The Academy of Appreciative Inquiry is dedicated to this approach to transformation, which is one of the most effective approaches to supporting collective intelligence within organizations. David Cooperrider, co-creator of this approach says “Every company, man, system, has something that works well, that gives it life, efficiency and ensures its success. »
Our own definition of Appreciative Inquiry: “The intentional and obsessive search for resources”.
Intentional: this approach contrary to our personal and professional habits invites us to focus on our resources: what is possible, what works, our talents, the opportunities. It is contrary to our habits and the use of tools and processes that we use in our daily lives; these tools and processes, going to look at the problems in order to understand the reasons for them in order to eradicate their source and thus solve the problem. If starting from a good intention, this usual way of doing things will rather increase the problem because by dint of focusing on him he risks taking up all the space. Analyzing the problem certainly makes us more intimate with the problem, but does not necessarily allow us to find the most appropriate solutions.
"Obsessive": we are convinced and our experience always proves it to us that it is possible to find resources even in the most complicated situations, it is enough to be convinced of it and to be in a continuous search for it by asking questions oriented towards the search for resources, strengths, best experiences, opportunities…
We cover the completeness of Appreciative Inquiry (Appreciative Inquiry, Appreciative Inquiry, Positive Exploration) in these 5 components that you will find described in our book “AI5: how to deploy the full power of Appreciative Inquiry”: Presence, Paradigms , Principles, Processes, Small (tools). Appreciative Inquiry is both "being AI ” and “do AI”.
Appreciative Inquiry can be used for oneself, in a work with another person, a team or an entire organization.
Within the Academy of Appreciative Inquiry, we have made it our mission to disseminate it both by forming (face-to-face, in digital) and supervising practitioners (whether they are leaders, consultants) inter and intra company, by publishing regularly (book, article, video, blog), by participating in the various international events in which we make frequent interventions and by being in contact with our international colleagues with whom we collaborate regularly. We are also frequently asked to produce lectures on Appreciative Inquiry and its applications. We are in a constant search to amplify this approach and we have also developed a whole new approach to the development of organizations which we have called "Positive Transformation" which we have already deployed in a good number of organizations in order to help them to release their energy to make them livelier organizations, help them develop more generative leadership and contribute to making projects more collaborative and fruitful.
