Appreciative Intelligence® is the ability to see the generative potential in any situation and to actualize it.  It is a leadership skill set that will enable you to step into conflict mindfully, and to transform difficult conversations into purposeful discussions.  As a leader, by improving your Appreciative Intelligence, you will expand your abilities to reframe conflicting situations and move affected parties to a common ground.  While challenging projects and difficult conversations will always be there, your approach to dealing with them will be more mindful, transforming conflict into opportunities to create better understanding, to enhance relationships, and to gain mutual respect, and create shared goals and positive outcomes.
