    The Power of Possibility; Creating Positive Visions for the Future with Appreciative Inquiry

    February 8, 2019 7:30 am to 9:00 am

    Organizations need compelling visions that grab people’s imagination especially in these challenging times.  Getting donors and contributors to invest in an organization not only depends on solid operations, great staff and a track record it also requires a dynamic vision of possibility and a culture of collaboration and engagement.

    Join us for a highly interactive session with Deborah Maher, an expert in Appreciative Inquiry. She will offer some of the latest scientific findings on the power of positivity, the practice of reframing, the design and use of generative questions and how conversations worth having often lead to greater than expected outcomes.

    Deborah Maher, President DFM Consulting Inc. Organizational Assessments, Strategic Planning, Leadership Coaching, Board Governance, Meeting Design and Facilitation
