Appreciative Inquiry and URI


Appreciative Inquiry is a philosophy for change that was created by Professor David Cooperrider and his associates at Case Western Reserve University. The URI has used Appreciative Inquiry interviews at its gatherings since 1996 to help create relationships which are at the heart of the URI’s growth and appeal. Here is a summary of Appreciative Inquiry, and how to use this powerful dialogue tool within the context of the URI community.
