Using Appreciative Inquiry to Foster a Culture of Wellness

Janine R. Shapiro, MD Associate Dean for Faculty Development, Medical Director for Continuing Medical Education, Professor of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine

Individuals perform their best work when they are doing things they find personally meaningful and when their work makes a difference. Looking for what works well and doing more of it is more motivating and effective than looking for what does not work and doing less of it. Appreciative inquiry can be used as a methodology to effectively navigate issues encountered in the work environment.
