    11. 11. The Five Principles of Appreciative Inquiry <ul><li>The Constructionist Principle ( Words c reate w orlds - p ositive q uestions l ead to p ositive c hange )- what people focus on becomes their reality , the language people use creates their reality. Appreciative Inquiry therefore takes particular care to encourage a positive focus and encourages the use of positive language . L anguage and metaphors we use don’t just describe the world, they actually create the world </li></ul><ul><li>The Positive Principle ( In every system, something works ) - focusing on the positive can lead to effective change and the positive language leads to the positive effects. The members of the organisation are supported to express the best that they have experienced </li></ul><ul><li>The Simultaneity Principle ( Inquiry c reates c hange ) there is no separate ‘diagnosis’ phase; no time is spent looking at root causes or holding inquests into the past. Instead, the change is seen as starting as soon as the steering group gets together to start asking each other appreciative questions. </li></ul><ul><li>The Poetic Principle (O rganisations are more as a story than a state ) . Appreciative Inquiry encourages the sharing of positive stories, believing that this will itself change the way people think and act. </li></ul><ul><li>The Anticipatory Principle ( Image i nspires a ction ) - images of the future can affect the way we behave in the present. In particular, if we have a particularly desirable image of the future we are likely to behave in ways that will bring it about. </li></ul>
