Strengths Based HRD and
Appreciative Inquiry

Strengths-Based Practices (SbPs) concentrates on the inherent strengths of individuals, families groups and organisations deploying peoples’ personal strengths in assisting their recovery and empowerment. SbPs are empowering alternatives to traditional methods with individuals, group or organizational work. SbPs refrain from allowing usage of any negative language or descriptions. The premise allows us to see people with their intrinsic strengths. Seeing ourselves as hopeful able to cause, affect and see change makes a big difference to our lives, our teams, our organizations . Strengths based strategies build and foster hope from within by focusing and working with precedent successes making it important for facilitators and those desiring change to be integral to this process of change.
Appreciative Inquiry (AI) gives you an opportunity and a daring to dream.
To gain that special insight from your unconscious mind and
To discover ideas and conceptions that you did not think before.
AI is concerned with the positives in everyone’s lives of ‘what works’.
In other words, it seeks out the best of what already exists in individuals and organizations.
AI has been used in both the corporate and social services development sectors. It has been instrumental in changing organizations, communities and individuals and can be used with few people to few hundreds in the organisation. Appreciative Inquiry is an approach that allows you to view your world as something full of problems and obstacles that requires constant analysis by you or someone else or allows you to understand that your own system is pretty amazing, mysterious, extraordinarily nurturing all you need is to believe and get behind your belief.
