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.
