Testimonials from our Graduates:

“CPC’s Certificate Program materials and trainers are outstanding, and what I’ve learned has helped mold me into the unique individual and consultant that I am. Just as important, my involvement with CPC and the Certificate Program has allowed me to extend my community of practice. I now feel grounded in a community of like-minded souls.”

Bill Scott, Principle
Elpis Consulting

“Appreciative Inquiry and the Practice of Positive Change has been most rewarding. We would not have been able to help our organization to the extent we have, had we not been part of this community, and able to regularly check in and ask specific, practice-based questions along the way.”

Julie Stockton, Director, Human Resources
Organization Development and Learning
University of British Columbia

In Praise of the Coaching Calls:

“The certificate program conference call adds another layer of learning to my practice of Appreciative Inquiry. I enjoy digging deeper into my own questions, and hearing more about how AI can be applied in venues differing from my own stimulates me to imagine how I might apply it in the future. It is like having a mini practice consultation, but free! Very good use of my time.”

Chris Sansone, CPCC, Ph.D.
Boulder, CO

“The Certificate Program’s quarterly practice-sharing calls provide a venue for us to reflect on and offer counsel on one another’s projects, find courage in the shared wisdom of others, and broaden and deepen our understanding of this marvellous work. There is no need for each of us to “reinvent the wheel” – the shared experiences of the growing AI community, under the watchful and encouraging eye of CPC mentors, provides us all an opportunity to enhance our AI knowledge and consultation skills together.”
