We apply innovation, thought-leadership, and theory-of-change research.
Resilience is a process, so not a trait. Instead, it's the ability to bounce back from adversity. Resilience identifies personal strengths as well as the environmental supports, strengths, and opportunities that nourish personal strengths associated with healthy and successful outcomes. The theory of resilience is supported by 50+ years of longitudinal research.
A strengths-based approach focuses on strengths, not deficits, to bring about the personal, organizational, and societal change. Focusing on strengths is about more than donning rose-colored glasses or ignoring challenges. Instead, it is a different approach – a different mindset – that values capacity, assets, skills, knowledge, connections, and potential.
Appreciative inquiry (AI) is a strategy that uses positive and collaborative techniques to implement personal, organizational, and societal change. As organizations and businesses aim to improve efficiency, survive, perform better, and boost competitiveness, AI goes beyond the traditional "problem-solving" strategies, which are fundamentally negative and imply criticism and remediation. Instead, AI is rooted in breakthrough discovery and innovation, so that people, organizations, and businesses go beyond remediation – they THRIVE.
