“How do you move your Client to present moment awareness?” By Using Action Inquiry and a Developmental Map to Enhance Client Transformation
Do you put action and inquiry together in your life?
Most people understand what “action” and “inquiry” mean when used in sentences by themselves. Put together, “Action Inquiry,” is a way of simultaneously conducting new and potent ways to develop leadership, performance and learning that increases the wider effectiveness of our actions.
Such actions help individuals, teams and organizations, become more capable of self-transformation and thus:
- more creative
- more aware
- more just
- more sustainable.
Action inquiry is a lifelong process of transformational learning that individuals, teams, and whole organizations can undertake if they wish to become:
• Increasingly capable of making future visions come true
• Increasingly alert to the dangers and opportunities of the present moment
• Increasingly capable of performing in effective and transformational ways
