Appreciative Leadership by the book

Toby Elwin, Appreciative Leadership: Focus on What Works to Drive Winning Performance and Build a Thriving Organization by Diana Whitney, Amanda Trosten-Bloom, Kae RaderAppreciative Inquiry is on a short-list of prime influences for my management, relationship, facilitation, change management, and organization behavior work.

I have written blogs on Appreciative Inquiry a lot, but I find the constant default to deficit-based diagnostics and problem-solving relationships leaves me in need to recharge. The preference to look where things are correct, magnify people modeling what works, and shine a light where interactions model possibility is where I prefer the focus and this book lends the model to appreciative leadership.

I’ve read Diana Whitney repeatedly and this book was a logical addition.

Business assets appreciate when leaders appreciate.  This is a route to sustainable results.  Leadership is not a title given, leadership is a competency observed by others.  Leadership comes from all levels.
