The tools, guides and videos help to step you the process of hosting a summit as well as introducing you to the theories that sit behind Appreciative Inquiry. As a consultant and coach, I have been using AI and Solution Focused approaches for some time now however after receiving the AI Summit Toolbox I was able to effortlessly hold a mini-summit knowing that I had covered all bases for successful change process, where all participants were involved AND took ownership. I can not recommend the Toolbox highly enough for all leaders, consultants and those responsible for leading change.”

Who I Am, and Why You Can Trust Me

My name is Michelle McQuaid, and these days I’m a best-selling author, workplace wellbeing teacher and playful change activator. I help people find the confidence, energy and support they need to create changes that enable them to thrive.

But it wasn’t always this way. Back in 2007, I was frustrated and exhausted. I’d spent more than a decade in large organizations around the world trying to encourage and enable people to live our brand values.

But I kept noticing a big problem. Over and over again, the approaches we used to enable long-term behavioral change would fail.

It looked liked the changes had worked for a little while, but as soon as leaders moved on most people went back to their old ways. The changes just wouldn’t stick.

In desperation I started looking for a better way and stumbled upon the emerging science of positive psychology – the evidence-based exploration of human flourishing — and by the time I’d completed my Masters with Professors Martin Seligman and David Cooperrider I understood that most change approaches fail because we try to “fix” what’s wrong, rather than “build” on the strengths available to us.

After seeing David bring this promise to life for 400 cynical auditors in an AI Summit, I was hooked and have spent the last decade studying and practicing alongside him.

And I’ve put everything we learned into this AI Summit Toolbox in the hope that it helps you to also create more positive changes in the world.

How Do AI Summits Create Positive Change?

Organizations, schools and communities use Appreciative Inquiry (AI) Summits to create positive disruptions that mobilize people to create something better and more meaningful together. They help people to build strong, trusted connections, so they can confidently self-organize, make a positive difference for others, and feel comfortable taking responsibility for the things that matter most to them.

AI Summits do this by creating psychologically safe spaces for people to come together and discover their strengths, share their dreams for the future, design collaborative pathways forward and take responsibility for their destiny.

A powerful means of changing the way people think, feel and act, AI Summits have been used to:

  • Deliver energy improvements across the state of Massachusetts resulting in nearly $9 billion worth of benefits for residents and businesses.
  • Unite the world’s religious leaders to bring together more than 7 million people of different faiths to help build a better world.
  • Help schools introduce and embed positive education approaches for students, teachers and families to improve wellbeing.

Want to know how? That’s exactly what we teach you in our AI Summit Toolbox.
