Sunflowers are happy-making flowers! Their big, bright yellow heads all face the same direction to form a blanket of sunny faces. They follow the sun from dawn to dusk. Heliotropic by nature, they turn to the light and warmth for growth.
Appreciative Inquiry has a lot in common with sunflowers. Just as sunflowers turn to the sun for light and energy, so too, do we humans grow and light up with great vitality in a field of abundant, sunny appreciation and positivity. We literally light up when basked with appreciation.
