CPC Organizing Appreciative Inquiry Summit in Chicago

The Corporation for Positive Change (CPC) is organizing an Appreciative Inquiry Summit from Apr 3, 2006 – Apr 6, 2006 in Chicago, IL. The AI Summit is a powerful approach to whole-system organizational change based on the principles and practices of Appreciative Inquiry as applied to large groups (30-3000 people). This workshop is led by AI pioneers Jim Ludema and Mike Mantel and is based on Jim’s definitive book The Appreciative Inquiry Summit: A Practitioner’s Guide for Leading Large Group Change. During the workshop, Jim and Mike will introduce the AI Summit methodology, share case stories of their work designing and facilitating large group AI Summits, and discuss applications of the AI Summit to strategic planning, corporate culture change, delivering exceptional customer service, vision and values clarification, global organizing and reinventing complex social systems such as health care. They will share stories and videos from their work in corporate, government, non-profit, and international settings. As a participant, you will be invited to bring a case study to work on during the workshop (i.e., a project in which you would like to use the AI Summit methodology). You will leave the workshop with a detailed plan and design for your Summit process. The cost of workshop is Standard: $1650; Groups of five or more: $1400 each; Non-Profit: $1350 and
Student: $1150. To register or for more information, contact the Corporation for Positive Change. Email: office@positivechange.org; Phone: 505.751.1232; Fax : 505.751.1233;
