Appreciative Inquiry


Needs Assessments


Appreciative Inquiry is built on a deceptively simple premise: that organizations grow in the direction of what they repeatedly ask questions about and focus their attention on. This methodology shifts the focus from solving problems to identifying and leveraging an organization's core strengths. 

By exploring the positive potential of what is already working well, Appreciative Inquiry facilitates sustainable and profound change, fostering an environment of collaboration, creativity, and renewed energy. Let SLI revolutionize your strategic planning and needs assessment with this unique approach.

Here, we invite you to embark on a journey of discovery and inspiration. Whether you're looking to revolutionize your organizational culture, enhance team dynamics, or lead impactful projects, our resources, tools, and facilitation will guide you every step of the way. 

Discover how Silver Linings International blends Appreciative Inquiry principles with trauma-informed principles and positive psychology to help you create lasting positive change, inspire action, and bring out the best in your organization and its people.

Join us as we apply the principles, practices to unlock a world where every inquiry is an opportunity for growth and every conversation sparks positive transformation. Welcome to a space dedicated to celebrating strengths, envisioning possibilities, and co-creating a more vibrant future together.
