The Power of Asset-Based Approaches

Amplifying social impact by building on what’s already working

$150 cost includes lunch

[Scholarships available]

Thursday, November 16

9 am to 4 pm

Southern Oregon University

It's really reassuring to focus on what's already working.

By starting every process with a focus on what is already positive, we open a gateway for people to become more actively engaged. This applies in relationships, work environment, and broader community.

Science has proven that asset-based thinking activates the prefrontal cortex of the brain. By contrast, deficit-based thinking stimulates the brain stem - forcing us to act with survival as our focus. Asset-based approaches can access creativity and possibilities that simply don't exist when we use a deficit-based approach.

It’s a life-affirming experience to participate in a group and be reminded of the good, true, and beautiful.

  • A refined ability to inspire and lead others
