Five Philosophies of Appreciative Leadership
Most individual and organizations go around carrying a cudgel of “what is wrong and who is to blame,” in all the businesses and the organizations we lead.
This approach of looking for problems may work for complex machinery and systems but fails drastically when it comes to human groups because human relationships are not just complex but are complicated.
Thus, a mechanical+rational+cognitive approach to resolving issues rarely work and barely sustainable. Over the decades, a new strengths-based, affirmative approach, a way of life has been delivering brilliant and beautiful results.
What will work better is “what’s working, what strengths can we employ and who is passionate about taking the lead?”
And, it takes five beliefs that can come handy in driving productive change:
- Every individual and organization is a beautiful mystery to be unfolded and unleashed.
- In life, and at work there are multiple realities and these realities construct according to how we perceive them collectively.
- The strengths and the resources that we most focus upon will grow magnificently.
- Every positive, empowering question we ask will simultaneously give rise to affirmative thought followed by action.
- When we filter, choose and select every grain, every word in our conversations for success and strengths, we build a beautiful world.
Appreciative Leadership is a personal and organizational leadership program influenced by Appreciative Inquiry, a holistic method and a process to initiate, drive and succeed affirmatively and sustainably all change programs.
