The Appreciative Inquiry model of change is useful because it acknowledges the power of the past in a positive way.
This is an early model that includes the CONTINUITY aspect of personal change. Too often we try to change by changing everything....which doesn't work for me. Better to build on what IS working. This week I am writing a letter to myself. This is the format:
- What did I value about 2008?
- What would I like to bring about in 2009?
- What will get my attention for transition?
Now, who deserves a letter more than you?
Have a good week.
