DURHAM, N.C., June 30, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Have you ever come across a person in your life who really believed in you and your potential, even at a time when that potential wasn't exactly obvious to you? Chances are that we have all been the recipients of such a gift from others, and that the doors that they opened for us have changed our lives in a myriad of important ways. It is a tremendously powerful moment when you choose to see the potential and the ability in others to build upon the skills and talents they already possess.

Appreciative Advising: The 6 Phases that Lead to Student Success

Appreciative Advising (AA) is one of the most powerful educational trends to sweep across college campuses in the decades.

First proposed by Jennifer Bloom a little over a decade ago, this advisement policy has been employed by the colleges across the Southeast with remarkable revolutionary results.

It is based upon the organizational development theory of Appreciative Inquiry and Positive Psychology literature. Appreciative Advising provides a flexible framework for the professionals to optimize student success.

Students are usually retained one at a time, and it is very crucial that administrators, staff and faculty partner together to optimize the student learning experiences. Appreciative Advising gives educators as well as the paraprofessionals the tools to do just that.
