Appreciative Living is crafted from Appreciative Inquiry (AI).  Appreciative Inquiry is a strengths-based, positive approach to leadership development and organizational change. Jackie Kelm took the principles of AI and developed them into a system of application for personal habits that, if followed, create joy. Appreciative Living is a toolbox of positive tools and strategies for personal development. By practicing the habits we teach in Appreciative Living Circles, we believe we equip you with one of the fastest and most effective approaches for personal growth and change. Personal growth and change that lasts.

We start by identifying what you really want. We anticipate any blocks, and have a process to move through those blocks. We have a step-by-step program to create new habits which become new behaviors which become new beliefs which become new results.

Thousands of people have participated in Appreciative Learning Circles. Hundreds of companies and organizations have used Appreciative Inquiry and and thousands of people have learned and experienced the benefits of Appreciative Living.

What Do You Get With Your 4 Week Program?

#1. Weekly Home-Study Class Recording

Each week for we'll gather to discussed the step-by-step program, watch supporting and instructional material produced by the author, and learn together as we develop the habit of gratitude. You'll learn the key lessons and detailed instructions that allow you to embed Appreciative Living into your life.

#2. Comprehensive Workbook

The program includes a detailed workbook you’ll refer to as you follow along with the class material. It is very thorough with a summary of the main ideas along with everything you need to know and do for that week.

#4. Companion Journal

There are several options for taking notes and doing your exercises, including an electronic journal. Some prefer to use their own written journal or write in the Participant Guide and you can choose what works best for you.

#3. Daily Practices

You’ll have simple but still transformative 10-15 minute daily practices that will help you create the life you want. You will be given clear written instructions and templates so you know exactly what to do, how, and when each week.

Here's What Learning Circles Do...And What They Don't

The Learning Circles DO:

  • Allow you to see solutions and good things you are missing. They expand your world-view and allow you to see the positive side of people and situations, opening up new ideas and solutions that are currently out of your awareness.

  • Help you think clearly and make better decisions. Research shows your thinking gets worse when you are anxious or afraid. Reducing negative emotion helps you think more clearly, take more constructive action, and make better decisions.

  • Make you happier with practice. The Learning Circles teach you how to shift your mindset to experience more happiness and joy. Like going to the gym to get stronger, an Appreciative Mindset is something you build through daily practice. There are no shortcuts or magic pills.

The Learning Circles DON’T:

  • Give you rose-colored glasses. This is where you block out all the bad things going on around you and pretend things are better than they are. This can actually keep you from getting what you want, and can also be dangerous for obvious reasons.

  • Make life perfect. Having an Appreciative Mindset will help you navigate the ups and downs of life, but it will not stop them. There will always be challenges, and the Learning Circles show you how to use them as opportunities to learn and live more joyfully.

  • Provide a quick fix or magic pill. While it only takes 10-15 minutes a day to do the simple practices, it does take 10-15 minutes a day. Over time your thinking will shift more naturally, but you have to do the daily practices to make it happen.
