NAWBO Leadership Using An Appreciative Approach

Posted by Ann Deaton Share Your Voice


Ann Deaton partnered on Friday with the leadership team of the Richmond chapter of the National Association of Women Business Owners to update their strategic plan using an appreciative approach. Using Appreciative inquiry involves asking questions that enable a team to discover what they are already doing well and want to build on, and to dream about what the future looks like. We even experimented with choosing pictures from the JICT image cards that could help access the brain's full power in generating a vision of the future.

Next time? We get to take the next step in the Appreciative Inquiry 5D process and design the action steps that will ensure all NAWBO's dreams come true.

Small Ann Deaton I am a leadership coach, and Managing Partner in Bounce. I love to coach and facilitate with individuals and systems experiencing significant change and growth. The clients I work with, regardless of their age or position, are talented and creative individuals willing to look with fresh eyes at their challenges and opportunities, and to take action based on their discoveries. As a result, they find that they are capable of accomplishing far greater things than they ever imagined. What do you want to accomplish today? Who do you want to be?
