APPRECIATIVE INQUIRY FOUNDATIONS WORKSHOP IN FRENCH
Montréal, November 25 to 27, 2009
On November 25 to 27, we are offering a three-day foundations workshop on Appreciative Inquiry. This workshop is titled: Introduction à l’approche de l’enquête appréciative and will be offered in French. The Appreciative Inquiry aproach was developed during the 1980's by David Cooperrider and his colleagues at Case Western University.
Too often in our management and organizational development practices our attention is quickly put on what is not working, what is broken, what is problematic. This deficit based approach emphasizes problems and breakdowns and sometimes even amplifies them. In contrast to this traditional approach, Appreciative Inquiry brings our attention to what works in our organization, asking questions to discover what we value, what is meaningful for us, our successes and our strengths, allowing us to dream up and create our collective desired future.
We invite you to register for this workshop before October 17 to take advantage of the early-bird rate.
For more information, please refer to the attached brochure and registration form (in French) or communicate directly with France Cloutier, Bergevin Cloutier & Assoc on (416) 466-3080 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Au plaisir de vous y voir.
