Jump! - Appreciative Inquiry Foundation Program

Who We Are

About JUMP!

JUMP! is a foundation program in Appreciative Inquiry. It will provide a space to understand the basic philosophy, paradigm and principles of AI as well as provide a grounding in the application of AI in the real world.

It will help the participants get a holistic understanding of the 5D Cycle of the change process which AI uses to lead an organisation in the direction of the most generative and creative.

This program will enable participants to design and hold an Appreciative Inquiry Interview. Touch the life giving forces of individuals / teams / organisations.

We will bring in our own experiences of large scale AI based change in several organizations over last 4 years involving at times as many as 600 - 1200 people in a single room! We will share our own insights and learning on practical ways of creating interventions for systems that you may wish to inspire and change.

The thought behind JUMP! - An Urge to See a Different World

Each one of us hold seeds of bold audacious dreams in ourselves, we question paradigms, see limitless possibilities and want to make the leap into this space of endless creation. We wish to live our dreams, create new dreams and operate from the paradigm of the positive. We envision our lives to be whole, nourishing and full of joy and beauty, and our workplaces to be places of expression and fulfilment. We desire to build a world that is joyful, efficient and expanding. In the world that unfolds around us today, these and many more wishes are finding a voice. We want to co-create the reality which can unfold from these wishes. We have ideas. We have passion. We have resources and support. What we need is to JUMP! To know how to start! Let us Imagine, Inquire and inspire to dream an Audacious Dream for ourselves and each other, let us explore all that we can be and create!

About Appreciative Inquiry

"I think Appreciative Inquiry theory would say it loves positive thinking, especially to the extent it prepares us to see and learn in more positive ways (beyond deficit modalities). But appreciation, coupled with the word Inquiry, differs from affirmation in that it is not instrumental. It gives up its Capability of shaping the world closer to pre-existing wants because it tends, in the end, to transform those wants into something very different from that which was originally affirmed. That’s what happened in inquiry. That is what happens when we are learning. We end up somewhere else. It’s an Odyssey, not a journey!"
- David Cooperrider

Appreciative Inquiry (AI) is an experiential methodology of creating transformation through inquiry into “What works” and using that knowledge to design the actualization of the vision.

Why "Appreciative" Inquiry?

Appreciation is creative rather than conservative precisely because it allows itself to be inspired by the voice of mystery where the miracle of life on this planet keeps our questioning authentic, fresh, off-balanced, humble, and unrelenting. As an active process of valuing the factors that give rise to the life enhancing and liberating organization, appreciation has room for vital uncertainty, the indeterminacy, and the edge of chaos moment.

That is the trademark of something alive. Life erupts and overflows common categories. Our most positive thoughts are obsolete, right now. Might we allow ourselves to move increasingly to the centre of the edge, into the ever expanding domain of uncertainty?
