Publisher's Summary

Written by the originators and leaders of the Appreciative Inquiry (AI) movement itself, this short, practical audio guide offers an approach to organizational change based on the possibility of a more desirable future, experience with the whole system, and activities that signal "something different is happening this time." That difference systematically taps the potential of human beings to make themselves, their organizations, and their communities more adaptive and more effective. AI, a theory of collaborative change, erases the winner/loser paradigm in favor of coordinated actions and closer relationships that lead to solutions at once simpler and more effective.

too many tables an and figures

This book features a lot of tables, lists and figures. It might be a good read if you have the book on paper, but it is not fit to be an audio book.

Instead read Conversations Worth Having

I am a very big fan of the concept, but this book is very low on practical application. It feels like a sales pitch for the concept, but little useful knowledge came from my listen. In contrast I listed to Conversations Worth Having, which gave me a very handy understanding of how to apply the AI concept to my life. Cheers!

Not concrete

A lot od advertisment on how great it is without tangible examples. It sounds like an attittude to have when conducting change rather than an actual method
