What is Positive Engagement?

Positive Engagement events are rapidly becoming recognised as an effective, and engaging option that enables a wide variety of people to work together to discuss and explore possible ways to improve whatever it is they have chosen to explore.    

Positive Engagement events encourage people to focus on what is currently working well and to use the workshop as an opportunity to begin to build a joint vision of what might realistically be possible for the future in terms of the chosen subject area.

The approach provides a way for everyone involved to identify and celebrate what is already working well, collectively envision the desired future, and identify practical ways to get there.  It has an impressive track record – and has been used all over the world by a wide range of orgainsations, including many local authorities and public sector orgainsations.
