David Cooperrider's Foreword to Appreciative Intelligence: Seeing the Mighty Oak in the Acorn

This November 2005 commentary on Appreciative Inquiry comes from David Cooperrider's Foreword to an excitng new book in press called, Appreciative Intelligence: Seeing the Mighty Oak in the Acorn written by Tojo Thatchenkery and Carol Metzker (forthcoming from Berrett-Koehler 2006). As you will see, the book advances Howard Gardner's classic concept of multiple intelligences, and helps answer a question people are increasingly asking: "How can we develop appreciative capacities in ourselves and others--not just at the organizational or larger systems levels--but at the individual levels of our own lives?" Also don't miss the story of David's recent trip to Israel. It is a real example of Appreciative Intelligence in the midst of difficult, seemingly intractable conflict. It is also an inspiring account of business as a force for reconciliation and peace. Cheers to Tojo and Carol for their fine book!
