Appreciative Inquiry evolved in the 1980's as a positive philosophy to guide change in organizations. Research shows that the severity of problems and conflicts can actually increase when too sharp of a focus is applied to them. Recent developments in positive psychology suggest that people and organizations flourish when they focus on human ideals, achievements, and best practices. Appreciative inquiry uses positive questions build the strengths of organizations rather than emphasize their weaknesses. This volume applies lessons learned from appreciative inquiry to executive and career coaching.
