Appreciative Coaching® derives from the positive philosophy known as Appreciative Inquiry, created to guide change in organizations. Recent developments in positive psychology and organizational development suggest that people and organizations flourish when they focus on human ideals, achievements, and best practices. Appreciative Coaching® uses positive questions, mindfulness, and other tools to acknowledge people’s strengths and help them realize their own big dreams. This volume applies the principles of appreciative inquiry to individual coaching.

Key features of this volume:

  • Written by three leading business and career coaches
  • Includes appreciative coaching® methodology
  • Offers both theory and hands-on experience to support coaching success
  • Demonstrates a step-by-step approach to adopting an appreciative perspective
