Leadership Program

Appreciative Inquiry (Ai) is an organizational development model that is a strengths-based approach and an alternative way to address contemporary problems. Ai emphasizes the mindsets shift to redesign and redevelop strategic visions by spotlighting what is the best in engaging and directing the future. In this epoch, the Anthropocene, people are more likely to experience unpredictable phenomena as causal effects of human activities. It includes social-ecological issues, “development” agendas, legal-political issues, and leadership actions. This workshop, led by Young Southeast Asian Leaders Initiative (YSEALI) alumni, will dive into the cutting-edge practices of Ai in exploring the best in the individual, group, and multi-scaled relationship between humans and nature. We will explore the possibility of “everyone’s contribution” in making a inhabitable future. By using the 4-Ds: Discovery, Dream, Design, and Destiny/Deploy, participants will be invited to engage in finding and maximizing what is best in themselves and their surroundings.
