When you view yourself and others through an appreciative lens, you feel richer for the sense of having deeper awareness and understanding, seeing more value in what you are looking at and as a result feeling richer, more substantial, complete with an enhanced awareness of your own and the potential resources and talent of others.
Appreciative interactions are those that people leave feeling as if they are more recognised, valued and substantial than they imagined before the encounter, conversation, interaction, relationship or group experience. This applies equally in the way that you host your own experience and show-up in your relationship with yourself.
Good relationships are well-managed relationships. Appreciative management of relationships grows the sense of shared meaning and value in relationships, teams, families and organisations.
Appreciative witnessing means hosting conversations and interactions in ways that makes others feel appreciated.
