The Constructionist Principle: Words Create Worlds

Reality, as we know it, is a subjective vs. objective state and is socially created through language and conversations.


The Simultaneity Principle: Inquiry Creates Change

Inquiry is an intervention. The moment we ask a question, we begin to create a change. “The questions we ask are fateful.”


The Poetic Principle: We Can Choose What We Study

Teams and organizations, like open books, are endless sources of study and learning. What we choose to study makes a difference. It describes – even creates – the world as we know it.


The Anticipatory Principle: Image Inspires Action

Human systems move in the direction of their images of the future. The more positive and hopeful the image of the future, the more positive the present-day action.


The Positive Principle: Positive Questions Lead to Positive Change

Momentum for (small or) large-scale change requires large amounts of positive affect and social bonding. This momentum is best generated through positive questions that amplify the positive core.
