Appreciative learning is explained as a positive instructional method that is based upon appreciative inquiry, an Organizational Development (OD) methodology. The entire program is described as context for the use of appreciative learning with upper middle and senior level managers. The specific use of the method is described and discussed. Learner reaction is presented. Future use and alternative applications are suggested.
