"Liz and Appreciative Inquiry are a potent mix, the workshop series resulted not only in a strategic plan but importantly understanding through dialogue and   commitment to its implementation by senior regional and corporate managers.  The strategic plan was literally a compilation of the outcomes from each workshop  and was actually reviewed and endorsed by the group in the final session, establishing a common language and vision for the future. Participants agreed that it was a valued investment of their time."
