Review “Appreciative Inquiry” Principles, a constructionist approach to transformation & growth;
Practice “Generative Conversations” to facilitate “Grief & Growth” work, and inspire hope, resilience, meaning & growth; and
Design a Daily Appreciative Practice to provide groundwork for lasting change.
