Ellen Drolette, in an article that provides the foundation of a new Exchange Reflections, discusses how using a technique called appreciative inquiry can positively transform our lives. She explains:
“Using appreciative inquiry brings out the best in people and organizations. It is a change in mindset and takes intentional changes in the way we welcome families, hold conferences, talk about challenging behaviors, communicate with co-workers and children.”
Drolette provides many examples of how to use appreciative inquiry, and the Exchange Reflections, “Appreciative Inquiry for a More Positive Professional Life,” offers wonderful conversation starters and ideas for enhancing program and personal satisfaction. This Reflections will work equally well in a group setting or for personal learning.
