Strategic Collaboration Workshop Draws Together D&D Methods

Christine Sanchez just sent us word of a workshop she’s organizing this December in Arizona. Methods For Strategic Collaboration is a unique experiential learning workshop that provides foundational theory and practice to utilize Appreciative Inquiry, Open Space Technology, World Café and Polarity Management™. Participants will:

  1. Gain a working knowledge of the principles, steps and practices of Appreciative Inquiry, World Café and Open Space Technology
  2. Craft appreciative questions and provocative propositions in your own language and for your environment.
  3. Design a large group project to take home.
  4. Participate in two follow-up coaching sessions.

Within the change model of Appreciative Inquiry, this workshop teaches AI interviews for the Discovery Phase, World Cafe for the Dream Phase, OST for the Design Phase, and Polarity Management™ and local project design for the Destiny Phase.

The workshop will be held December 3-6, 2007 at Rex Ranch, www.rexranch.com, in Amado, AZ, 40 miles south of Tucson.
