Jackie Stavros and Cheri Torres have been internationally recognized for their work with Appreciative Inquiry (AI). They have positively affected the lives of thousands or people and hundreds of organizations improve their capacity to thrive in uncertain times. They have been researching, writing, consulting, and speaking on AI since 1996. Their latest work is applying AI into our conversations – anywhere, anytime, anyplace. Conversations are at the core of how we interact. We know conversations influence us, but we rarely stop to think about how much impact they have on our well-being and our ability to thrive. In their new book, Conversations Worth Having: Using Appreciative Inquiry to Fuel Productive and Meaningful Engagement, (Introduction is written by David Cooperrider), they will show how your conversations will help people, organizations, and communities flourish. Using two AI practices and principles, they will share how everyone can communicate better and flourish in all areas of their lives. Participants will receive a pocket-size quick start guide (www.ConversationsWorthHaving.today).
