Appreciative Inquiry: THE Question

As an appreciative inquiry practitioner, it’s so easy to get caught up in the ‘busy-ness’ of work and forget to ask myself the most important question of the day.

And what’s that?

It’s “What appreciative question can I ask today?”

Without asking myself this, I often feel like an Appreciative Inquiry technician. That is, a technician who uses AI as a ‘tool’ rather than one who lives the principles of…

Concerns versus Problem

I have a great privilege to be part of a wonderful coaching team for the Aquatic Agricultural System (AAS) Competence in Bangladesh, Solomon Islands and Zambia. Last week, I’ve  learned so much from the team (i.e. Bobby from India, Olivia from UK, Onesmus from Kenya and Wiwin from Indonesia) on how to explain the differences between ‘concern’ and ‘problem’ and why the Constellation chooses to emphasize on ‘concerns’. Here are what we have put our thoughts together.

What make a person a facilitator (CLCP)

This is what I feel about person capacity to be able to facilitate CLCP. I'm too worry about giving opportunity to person who actually able to be facilitator but she/he has not already attending TOF or learning event and the like. It's about how to ensure that SALT and CLCP been learned, , shared and transferred without any project intervention or money support. I don't know why I personally been really evoked and involved at this SALT and CLCP things. I just feel that, borrowing Olivia's…

Recently I met a Chinese lady by the name,…

I greatly appreciated the opportunity given to me to listen to two mothers share their stories.


Mdm. E taught me that strong, deeply rooted desires and believing in “I CAN” (a person’s capabilities), is a path that leads to their achievements.

Mdm. E had a very hard life, a life of rejection. Listening to her, I could feel so much positive vibes in her, even though she has not experienced love and appreciation since childhood to her early adult life.

She shared…

In the shoes of a service user/participant


In the shoes of a service user/participant

I recently attended a painting workshop over three days that helped me to discover more about myself at least, to go beyond my fears. Being a leisure paint/art person I chose to attend this workshop because the criteria was, “ No painting or art experience is required.” which fitted quite well with me as a leisure artist. Also, I just wanted a break, to relax.

At the workshop I was surprised in many ways.…

Histoire 1 : Fin de la clandestinité lien avec l’inclusion

Autrefois, au centre de Toma, on entrait par la grande porte pour bénéficier du counseling et éventuellement faire son test de dépistage. A la fin, on sortait par la petite porte pour éviter de se faire voir par les passants indiscrets.

Maintenant, ceci n’est qu’un lointain souvenir. En effet, grâce à note association de PVVS, nous sommes sereins et confiants en nous-mêmes. Les activités des clubs d’écoute et culinaires,…

Histoire 4 : Une évolution des mentalités lien avec reconnaissance et acceptation/Story 4: A change in attitudes related to recognition and acceptance

Avant lorsque le pasteur était mis au courant de l’infection d’un disciple de son ministère, il en informait sa hiérarchie qui prenait des mesures contre le pécheur. La personne était mis au banc des accusés de la communauté. Paer conséquence, le personne était aussitôt stigmatisée.

Certains jetaient le bébé avec l’eau du bain en déclarant.’’ Pourquoi appuyer les PVVS ? Il faut les laisser mourir, comme ça la maladie disparaîtrait avec elles’’

Mais grâce à l’association des PVVS avec…

La fin du programme étant annoncée pour bientôt, qu’allons nous devenir et que faire ? C’est ainsi que l’association a initié l’exploitation d’un champ collectif d’arachide à Toma. Le produit de sa récolte nous permet de tirer une pate entrainant dans l’assaisonnement des certains repas communautaires servis aux membres dans le but d’améliorer la qualité nutritionnelle de leur alimentation.

L’insuffisance pluviométrique de la saison dernière n’a pas entamé le moral des gens car nous…
