What is PROMISE Informed™

Promise Informed is based on the Appreciative Inquiry model which is a methodology used for organizational development, positive change, and transformation. It is based on the premise that focusing on positive experiences and strengths, rather than on problems and weaknesses, leads to more effective and sustainable change.

Promise Informed is a philosophy based on Appreciative Inquiry that guides an approach to how we see, think, and make decisions.  It inspires a way of living that is personal mission-driven, establishes a success mindset, and reveals a pathway to sustainable wellness and personal and professional fulfillment. 

Promise Informed attracts lifelong learners who are like-minded to become authentically integrated, mission driven individuals possessing a mindset for success. It begins with a decision to pursue an understanding of self and a commitment to learn and apply related daily practices.  It inspires you to rethink your goals and potential. You learn how to position yourself based on your highest and best use.  You can experience enhanced outcomes such as boosted confidence, inner peace, order, gratitude, self-control, and purpose.

The Promise Informed growth opportunity guides the discovery and exploration of personal gifts, talents, vision, and mission by presenting connecting concepts that cultivate skills needed to internalize new learning, heighten intrinsic motivation, and develop advanced proficiencies. 

Promise Informed training and coaching facilitates the teaching and implementation of Promise Informed practices.  Showing mastery of PI content through the completion of various trainings and courses, earns you professional PI certifications and designations for all types of business models, service industries, organizations, and education institutions.  As certified and practicing affiliates of the Promise Informed professional community, your clients, customers, patients, students, constituents, team members, and partners will be better served and more satisfied, feel appreciated and well considered, leave more impressive reviews, and provide more repeat and referral business opportunities.
