My mind has changed during the last twenty or thirty years…Now for many years I cannot endure to read a line of poetry…I have also almost lost any taste for pictures or music…My mind seems to have become a kind of machine for grinding general laws out of large collections of facts…

If I had to live my life again I would have made a rule to read some poetry and listen to some music at least once every week…The loss of these tastes is a loss of happiness, and may possibly be injurious to the intellect, and more probably to the moral character, by enfeebling the emotional part of our nature.”

Charles Darwin (1809-1882), english naturalist, author of Origin of Species


Appreciative Coaching

Appreciating. Taking targeted, vigorous action in support of change and creating meaningful solutions.

This coaching technique helps you to create an appreciative, positive image of your present and future. Uncovering the wide range of opportunities presented by your current situation enables you to construct a fulfilling future.

Positive, inspirational and powerful questioning is at the core of this change for the better. The process is centred around a collaborative search for the most effective and positive aspects of your personality. We highlight your strengths and explore the keys to your past and current successes.

This approach has its roots in Appreciative Inquiry (AI), a positive philosophy and methodology designed to bring about organisational change. AI was developed in the mid-1980s by David L. Cooperrider of Case Western Reserve University.
