Engage in Appreciative Advising

The Six Phases of Appreciative Advising:

The Disarm phase involves making a positive first impression with students and allaying any fear or suspicion they might have of meeting with the advisor.
The Discover phase is spent continuing to build rapport with students and learning about the studentsí strengths, skills, and abilities through utilizing effective and positive open-ended questions that encourages narratives.
The Dream phase involves uncovering studentsí hopes and dreams for their futures.
The Design phase is spent co-creating a plan to make their hopes and dreams come true.
The Deliver phase is the implementation phase where students carry out their plan and the advisorís role is to support them as they encounter roadblocks.
Don't Settle
The Donít Settle phase, involves challenging students to achieve their full potential and supporting them along their journey.
