From the Publisher:

The Appreciative Inquiry Handbook is the first practical, hands on workbook for implementing AI. Rather than a textbook, The Appreciative Inquiry Handbook is an actual user manual for those who want to implement AI. The book contains AI topic choices, interview guides, reports, cases, overheads, participant handouts, course outlines, detailed description of the 4-D Cycle (Discovery, Dream, Design, Destiny), customizable training workshops, and a glossary of terms.

About the Author:

David L. Cooperrider is Professor and Chair of the Center for Business As An Agent of World Benefit , at the Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western Reserve University.

Professor Cooperrider is past President of the National Academy of Management’s Division of Organization Development, and a co-founder of The Taos Institute. He has lectured and taught at Stanford University, MIT, University of Chicago, Katholieke University in Belgium, Pepperdine University, and others.

He has served as researcher and consultant to a wide variety of organizations including, for example, Allstate, Cap Gemini Ernst and Young, GTE-Verizon, Roadway Express, Nutrimental, World Vision, Cleveland Clinic, Imagine Chicago, and United Way of America. Currently, as a result of a multimillion-dollar grant, Professor Cooperrider and his colleagues have organizational learning projects in 57 organizations in over 100 countries in Africa, Asia, Europe, and North and South America. One of the most complex and important is an initiative toward the establishment of an organization comparable to a United Nations among the world's religions—a United Religions. Most of these projects are inspired by the Appreciative Inquiry (AI) methodology for which Professor Cooperrider is best known. Admiral Clark, CNO of the Navy, recently met with and called on David and colleagues to bring AI into the Navy for a multiyear project on "Bold and Enlightened Naval Leadership". Cooperrider’s work is especially important because of its ability to enable positive change is systems of very large and complex scale.

David often serves as meeting speaker and leader of large group, interactive conference events. His ideas have been published in journals such as Administrative Science Quarterly, Human Relations, Journal of Applied Behavioral Science, The OD Practitioner, and in research series such as Advances In Strategic Management. More popularly, Professor Cooperrider’s work has been covered by The New York Times; Fast Company, Fortune, Christian Science Monitor, San Francisco Chronicle and others. He has been recipient of Best Paper of the Year Awards at the Academy of Management, and numerous clients have received awards for their work with Appreciative Inquiry--GTE, for example, was recognized as the 1998 Best Organization Change Program in the Country by ASTD. Among his highest honors David was invited to design a series of dialogues among 25 of the world's top religious leaders, started in 1998 by His Holiness the Dalai Lama who said, "If only the world's religious leaders could just know each other . . . the world will be a better place." Using AI, the group has held meetings in Jerusalem and at the Carter Center in Atlanta. David was recognized in 2000 as among "the top ten visionaries" in the field by Training Magazine, and has been named in Five Hundred People of Influence.

David has published seven books and authored over 40 articles and book chapters. Cooperrider’s most recent volumes include Collaborating for Change: Appreciative Inquiry Berrett-Kohler 1999 (with Diana Whitney); No Limits to Cooperation: The Organization Dimensions of Global Change, 1999, Sage Publications (with Jane Dutton); Organizational Courage and Executive Wisdom and Appreciative Leadership and Management (both with Suresh Srivastva); International and Global OD (with Peter Sorenson). David has been named editor of a new Sage Publication Book Series on the Human Dimensions of Global Change and an academic book series Advances in Appreciative Inquiry (with Michel Avital) published by Elsevier Science. His wife Nancy is an artist and his daughter and two sons are in high school in Chagrin Falls Ohio.

Diana Whitney, President of Corporation for Positive Change and co-Founder of the Taos Institute, is an internationally recognized consultant, speaker, and thought leader on the subjects of Appreciative Inquiry, positive change, and spirituality at work. She
