“I feel completely different and I’m just amazed that it’s been able to happen in six weeks. I’ve done my gratitude lists every day, I’ve done all of the work that has been assigned… and I finally feel like I have the tools to create the life I want to create. I know I can do it, I have hope, I’m excited, it’s been just an amazing experience.”

“I came here expecting to learn things and come out with tools and all sorts of learning–which I did–but I never realized that I would be leaving with an internal shift that my whole world has become more positive… it’s really been an outstanding, amazing experience for me.”

Your Journey Will Be Led by the Expert Who Actually
Wrote the Book on Appreciative Living

I’m Jackie Kelm, and I have been researching, speaking, and writing about the use of Appreciative Inquiry in daily living for 15 years. And yes, I wrote the book on it– two books, in fact: Appreciative Living, and The Joy of Appreciative Living.  This work has transformed my life beyond anything I ever dreamed possible, from developing closer relationships with my friends and family, to creating the business of my dreams. And now I want to share it all with you.


Designed with Your Busy Life In-Mind

This program can take as little or much time as you have available. If you are really busy you can do the bare minimum each week which will take about one hour to listen to recordings, and 15 minutes a day to do the written exercises. If you have more time, you can select from optional videos, articles, and exercises that are provided each week.


Each Week You will Receive:

 I have found your workshop to be very powerful and personally transformational. I think a major reason for your work’s success has been the terrific tools and exercises you’ve developed. In addition, I think you’re a suburb teacher!”

  • Engaging class recordings from the best of previous Appreciative Living live teleseminars. You’ll hear Jackie lead the class and explain the key ideas while participants ask questions and share their experiences.


  • Practice Exercise done during each class recording that allows you to apply the main idea presented. Jackie will explain the exercise during the class recording, and you’ll do it on your own. When done, you can listen to the questions and comments participants had after doing it.


  • Detailed Workbook File including class presentation summary notes, exercise instructions, and templates for doing your daily exercises.


  • Weekly exercise instruction recordings made by Jackie just for this home study course so you will know exactly what you need to do each week.


  • Additional materials each week including videos, articles, and links to other resources that reinforce the key ideas.


Choose the Way You Do The Program

The program is flexible so you can do it any way that works best for you. The class materials will automatically be sent to you each week, but you can access them sooner if you wish, or even download the entire program right away.

There are two ways to do the program as well. You can download the workbook file, print it out, and write down your exercises and notes. Or you can do it all on your computer.

Finally, you can click on the links for the audio files and listen to them online, or you can download them and listen on another device.

You can do any of these options at any time, or change it up as you go!


A life-Long Program

I’ve been wanting to create this home study course for a long time, because it is something you can use for the rest of your life. I wish it were true that you could change your thinking habits one time and be done with it, but the reality is that long-term change happens over time. Difficult situations and experiences can test us as well, and we need tools to turn to in those times. That’s where this home study course shines.

The great part about this program is you can go back and do it again, and I specifically designed it so it would be easy for you to do this.

There is a “repeat” option where you can do the 6-week class again by just listening to the exercise recordings and doing the daily exercises. This only takes about a half hour once a week, plus 15 minutes a day for the exercises. This way you can easily refresh your vision and re-align your thinking. You can do some of the weeks or all of them, or even stretch it out if you’re going through something very difficult. I can’t think of a better life-tool to have at your disposal.


New Tools for AI Consultants

There is a lot of talk in the Appreciative Inquiry (AI) community about “Walking the Talk,” or “Being Appreciative Inquiry,” but the reality is that AI does not automatically transfer into your personal life by using it with organizations. This was a sobering realization for me early on, and I find that AI doesn’t even transfer over into certain parts of my personal life unless I deliberately work with it there.

To truly “Live AI” or “Be AI” you need to be doing some sort of regular personal practices that shift your thinking habits to be more appreciative and possibility focused in daily life. This program will give you those practices, and other new tools you may want to use with clients.

And you’ll find that as you learn to “Live Appreciative Inquiry” and really understand it on a personal level, you’ll be able to apply AI in new and creative ways with clients. You’ll also be much more effective as you’ll be role modeling the principles you teach.

“I cannot tell you what a life-changing six weeks this has been for me. It has just really given me a new outlook and focus on my life and I hope to continue to practice these principles…”


“Well, this has been fabulous. What I’m taking away is inspiration and motivation to live in joy and the positive orientation in life. So I’m looking forward to more Jackie. This is fabulous.”


“…after I signed up I started thinking, ‘ok, what do I want to get out of this?’ and it was really clear to me that I wanted to have a vision for the next few years of my life and that I had all these thoughts in my head and this has helped me get very, very clear about what it is I want. And the actions are just happening because of that very clear vision. And so I’m extremely excited. I’m just thrilled.”

"The exercises soon became a wonderful part of my day, setting it up in a positive and grateful way that carried throughout the day.

When I am running late and do not do them, my day seems to be off track and full of challenges."
