Appreciative Management and Leadership: The Power of Positive Thought and Action in Organisations

Co-authored by David Cooperrider who has written extensively on Appreciative Inquiry, this book offers a new perspective on organisational management that will enable leaders of organisations to unlock an organisations potential for creativity, innovation and collaboration. They show how consensus and cooperation grow from members understanding that their personal integrity and abilities are valued and will be integrated into the organisations culture. They also identify the special personal and leadership skills needed to cultivate and environment where managers work with and build on differences, rather than denying their expression.
