Appreciative Inquiry

Original Synopsis

"Appreciative Inquiry has a total of 86 pages which are papers from writer 'David Cooperrider, Diana D. Whitney'. Written by the two most recognized Appreciative Inquiry thought leaders A quick, accessible introduction to one of the most popular change methods today--proven effective in organizations ranging from Roadway Express and British Airways to the United Nations and the United States Navy Appreciative Inquiry (AI) is a model of change management uniquely suited to the values, beliefs, and challenges of organizations today. AI is a process that emphasizes identifying and building on strengths, rather than focusing exclusively on fixing weaknesses as most other change processes do. As the stories in this book illustrate, it results in dramatic improvements in the triple bottom line: people, profits, and planet. AI has been used to significantly enhance customer satisfaction, cost competitiveness, revenues, profits, and employee engagement, retention, and morale, as well as organizations' abilities to meet the needs of society. This book is a concise introduction to Appreciative Inquiry. It provides a basic overview of the process and principles of AI along with exciting stories illustrating how organizations have applied AI and the benefits they have gained as a result. It has been specifically designed to be accessible to a wide audience so that it can be handed out in organizations where AI is either being contemplated or being implemented. Written by two of the key figures in the development of Appreciative Inquiry, this is the most authoritative guide available to a change method that systematically taps the potential of human beings to make themselves, their organizations, and their communities more adaptive and more effective. 2005-10-10 time of publication of the book, [-Berrett-Koehler Publishers-]"

Conversations Worth Having

Original Synopsis

"Conversations Worth Having has a total of 168 pages which are papers from writer 'Jacqueline M. Stavros, Cheri Torres, David L. Cooperrider'. A Unique Guide to Changing Our World of Conversation. Conversation is a crucial part of everything we do. It influences our well being—a good conversation can leave us ready for anything, a bad one can ruin our whole day. But most of us are unaware of the nature of our conversations, let alone how to make them consistently affirming and empowering. This book shows us how to use Appreciative Inquiry, one of the most effective and widely used approaches for fostering positive change, to dramatically improve the outcomes of our conversations. By focusing on what we want to happen instead of what we want to avoid, and asking questions to deepen understanding and increase possibilities, we expand creativity, improve productivity, and unleash potential, at work and home. “This book is for everyone, from managers striving to lead more effectively, to parents trying to cultivate better conversations with children.” Lindsey Godwin, Director, David L. Cooperrider Center for Appreciative Inquiry “Wow! What a great book! I'm going to use it in my courses and with every client. It is rare to read a book that is so compelling and practical with simple guidelines anyone can use.” Gervase R. Bushe, Professor, Simon Fraser University, and author of Clear Leadership “A conversation is the smallest visible unit of change, our starting point for every important change effort. This book is a gift to the world, business, schools, and families!” Jon Berghoff, President, Flourishing Leadership Institute “A must read for all leaders. Practical wisdom and relatable stories!” Robert Easton, Senior Managing Director, Accenture “This short book is a rare gem—entertaining, relevant, educational, and immensely practical.!” Maureen McKenna, Founder, Return on Energy Jackie Stavros and Cheri Torres have been internationally recognized for their work with Appreciative Inquiry.

Original Synopsis

"Globalization and Corporate Citizenship: The Alternative Gaze has a total of 255 pages which are papers from writer 'Malcolm McIntosh'. The theory and practice of corporate citizenship and CSR have many alternative perspectives to the business-as-usual gaze. The essays in this volume encapsulate the essence of these alternative ideas and embrace the idea that progressive ways and means of this century do not lie in mainstream capitalist thinking. These pieces ask critical questions about the way we see the relationship between capitalism, business models and society – a subject not often discussed in non-academic literature. Globalization and Corporate Citizenship: The Alternative Gaze features contributions and new analysis from Klaus M. Leisinger, Chris Laszlo, David Coopperrider, Simon Zadek, Sandra Waddock and others. This title is one of a two-volume set – a collection of seminal and thought-provoking essays, drawn from the Journal of Corporate Citizenship’s archive, accompanied by new analysis and reflection from the original authors. Written by some of the most widely recognized academic and business pioneers and leaders of the corporate responsibility and global sustainability movement, the volumes make essential reference texts for anyone interested in the radically awakening new global political economy. 2017-09-08 time of publication of the book, [-Routledge-]"

"Handbook of Transformative Cooperation has a total of 462 pages which are papers from writer 'Sandy Kristin Piderit'. Transformative Cooperation (TC) presents new ways for individuals and organizations to partner to create a more sustainable future and take people to a higher stage of moral development. This handbook invites readers to consider how businesses can partner with organizations in other sectors of society, including governments and nonprofits, to address global concerns and improve the lives of all. It documents the need for and early examples of cooperative efforts that have transformed the relationships between corporations and the communities in which their employees live and work. The editors begin by issuing a call for TC, explaining the economic and social reasons for working across traditional organization, national, and international boundaries. The book then goes on to explain the dynamics of transformative cooperation, exploring the leadership characteristics that facilitate the transformation and its social benefits. Throughout this handbook, the editors present some of the best designs in transformative cooperation, and conclude by explaining transformative cooperation as a generative possibility.

Appreciative Management and Leadership

Original Synopsis

"Appreciative Management and Leadership has a total of 532 pages which are papers from writer 'Suresh Srivastva, David L. Cooperrider'. Organizations in the twenty-first century will look very different from those we know today. Faced with an environment of unpredictable demands and a workforce of great cultural and ethnic diversity, organizations will have to find new ways to engage their members in a spirit of common purpose.This book offers a new perspective on organizational management that will enable executives to unlock an organization's potential for creativity, innovation, and collaboration. In sixteen original essays the authors demonstrate how appreciation - the act of reconizing and valuing all kinds of diversity, whether cultural, ethnic, or simply different and unusual styles of management - is the key to forging unity and purpose among individuals in an organization. They show, for example, how consensus and cooperation grow from members, understanding that their personal integrity and abilities are valued and will be integrated into the organization's culture. They describe the specific communication practices that can be used to forge a common sense of purpose from conflicting pointsc of view and different personal goals. And they identify the special personal and leardership skills needed to cultivate an environment where managers work with and build on differences, rather than denying their expression. 1999-01 time of publication of the book, [-Lakeshore Communications-]"

Original Synopsis

"The Metropolitan Revolution has a total of 288 pages which are papers from writer 'Bruce Katz, Jennifer Bradley'. Across the US, cities and metropolitan areas are facing huge economic and competitive challenges that Washington won't, or can't, solve. The good news is that networks of metropolitan leaders – mayors, business and labor leaders, educators, and philanthropists – are stepping up and powering the nation forward. These state and local leaders are doing the hard work to grow more jobs and make their communities more prosperous, and they're investing in infrastructure, making manufacturing a priority, and equipping workers with the skills they need. In The Metropolitan Revolution, Bruce Katz and Jennifer Bradley highlight success stories and the people behind them. · New York City: Efforts are under way to diversify the city's vast economy · Portland: Is selling the "sustainability" solutions it has perfected to other cities around the world · Northeast Ohio: Groups are using industrial-age skills to invent new twenty-first-century materials, tools, and processes · Houston: Modern settlement house helps immigrants climb the employment ladder · Miami: Innovators are forging strong ties with Brazil and other nations · Denver and Los Angeles: Leaders are breaking political barriers and building world-class metropolises · Boston and Detroit: Innovation districts are hatching ideas to power these economies for the next century The lessons in this book can help other cities meet their challenges. Change is happening, and every community in the country can benefit. Change happens where we live, and if leaders won't do it, citizens should demand it.
