Organization and team development have increasingly become everyday components of a leader’s role. This book is written for informal and formal leaders who aspire to realize meaningful changes in their own context. Changes that will lead to a better performance and at the same time contribute to a vitalizing and energizing work environment.
Appreciative Inquiry enables you to work with committed employees and other stakeholders on larger and smaller issues in your organization and bring them forward. Every day, one conversation at a time.
This book specifically brings the theory of Appreciative Inquiry to the daily practice of leaders and managers. It contains many practical examples and suggestions that provide inspiration for your own leadership practice. You can read the book as an invitation to start using Appreciative Inquiry right away. You don’t have to read front-to-back. The structure in short chapters, dedicated to specific topics or tools, ensures that you can read criss-cross and find a new and relevant angle each time.
