About this title


The secret to success lies in something that everyone has the ability to do: reframe reality to reveal the hidden potential within even the most apparently unpromising present. ""Appreciative Intelligence marks the first time that this ability has been rigorously investigated. Arguing that the keys to Appreciative Intelligence are revealing the hidden value in others and building an infrastructure, environment, or culture that spreads the leader's Appreciative Intelligence, Tojo Thatchenkery and Carol Metzker draw on real-life examples and thorough interviews with top executives to identify actual examples of this elusive ability. Through these examples they show how a knack for creatively dealing with unexpected situations is the common bond between a diverse range of success stories. The authors also show that time and time again, an understanding of Appreciative Intelligence leads to organizations that enjoy higher levels of innovation, more productive employees, greater ability to adapt to changes, and, ultimately, greater profit.

From the Inside Flap:

"In this thought-provoking and lucidly written book, Thatchenkery and Metzker provide a compelling justification for the notion of ‘Appreciative Intelligence.’ This is what endows successful leaders with the qualities of persistence, conviction, comfort with uncertainty, and resilience to overcome challenges. This book is a must-read for all those grappling with the issue of leadership in a dynamic, complex, and confusing world." —Dr. V. Nilakant, Associate Dean, Faculty of Commerce, University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand

"Thatchenkery and Metzker see enormous potential in all of us to create new and more promising futures, and this work invites us all to share the same inspiring vision. It is a vision I find enormously compelling and for which we should all be appreciative." —Kenneth J. Gergen, Mustin Professor of Psychology, Swarthmore College

"Appreciative Intelligence is a book and an idea that opens new possibilities for seeing how people and organizations create value and achieve success. Appreciative Intelligence is an inspiring and practical account of how to develop the capacity to see potential within the present and to develop this capacity within oneself and in others." —Jane E. Dutton, William Russell Kelly Professor of Business Administration and Professor of Psychology, Stephen M. Ross School of Business, University of Michigan

"Stunning! Going one step beyond appreciative inquiry, Thatchenkery and Metzker have made an exciting contribution to the new field of positive organizational scholarship. This book will forever change how you think about intelligence." —Robert Kramer, PhD, and Director, Executive Education Programs, American University
