Coaching expertise

A student of David Cooperrider, Tony is among the early pioneers and practitioners of Appreciative Inquiry (AI), a change methodology that is based on two deceptively simple premises for planning and engagement:

We find more of what we seek—by focusing on what is desired—strengths and opportunities for innovation/improvement, as well as aspirations and desired outcomes/results—more creative ideas are generated, and more possibilities are explored. Positive Image = Positive Action.

People commit to what they help to create—the more participatory the process, engaging those who impact and those who will be impacted, the more committed people will be to the outcome, the work needed to get there, and long-term success.
