Five principles of Appreciative Inquiry - Poetic Principle

The five principles of Appreciative Inquiry

1) Positive attetion in the present - Poetic principle
2) Positive anticipation of the future - Anticipatory principle
3) Positive questions and reflections - Simultaneity principle
4) Positive conversations and interactions - Constructionist principle
5) Positive energy and emotion - Positive principle
these can lead to positive actions and outcomes

The poetic principle - Positive anticipation of the future stems from positive attention in the present.
The poetic principle asserts that the more one attends to the positive dimensions of the present moment, the more positive the intension for future moments will be. A focus on problems begets more problems; a focus on possibilities begets possibilities. With positive emotions, one's vision widens, and through this broadened mind, comes more flexibility, attunment to others, creativity, and wisdom. Seeing and attending to the poetry of life is inspiring. It's not that problems disappear. Rather, other things become more important. Life's peotry evolves into a spiral of positive imagination (Moore, Jackson, & Tschnnen-Moran, 2016).
