The Biography of Cindi Bergen

Welcome! My name is Cindi Bergen and I am an Appreciative Inquiry and happiness facilitator and educator. One of my greatest joys is empowering individuals to create radical change simply by shifting the way they view being in relationship with life.


My educational background includes a Bachelors of Business in Human Resource Management and Masters of Science in Instructional & Performance Technology, both from Boise State University. I have attended additional training in

  • Project and Program Management
  • Langevin Instructional Design
  • Front-end Analysis
  • Creating Customer-Centered Change
  • Intermediate Appreciative Inquiry
  • Drivers for Business Results
  • Change Resilient Leadership
  • Making Virtual Teams Work

Business Experience

Twenty-five years of experience in the corporate world include ten years with Hewlett-Packard in Learning and Development and fifteen years in the grocery and food industry. My training and performance consulting skills are comprehensive. I have done competency modeling and curriculum development, front-end analysis, intervention selection, instructional design and development, training delivery, developed and implemented evaluation strategies, and budgeting.

I am passionate about educating individuals, teams and organizations on the benefits of Appreciative Inquiry (Ai) and happy, engaged employees. At HP I co-created a community of practice focused on Appreciative Inquiry which grew to approximately 300 members worldwide. The community provided members with industry leading speakers, a knowledge repository, sharing of best practices, several classes on Appreciative Inquiry and mentoring and coaching opportunities.

It has been my pleasure to have conducted multiple presentations on various topics including Appreciative Inquiry (Ai), Appreciative Inquiry in a virtual environment, working in a global virtual environment, competency modeling, the benefits of happy, engaged employees and work/life balance. Through my work with the Appreciative Inquiry I have conducted several inquiries, both face-to-face and virtual, In addition, I have coached others to use and integrate Ai principles and practices in their work and home lives


Working with large teams or complicated projects, I’ve found it is very helpful to partner with another consultant. Sherry and I have collaborated on several projects. Our styles mesh well and our co-facilitation flows with ease and inspiration because our strengths are different and the same.


I consider myself a life-long learner and I am an avid reader. Currently, my fascination lies with research into happiness or ‘subjective well-being, and neuroscience. For thirty years I have studied the fact that we create our own reality. I believe that quantum physics validates that fact.

I work out regularly, love to hike, bike, water and snow ski. I love science fiction movies and books.
