Episode Description

People value problem-solving and go immediately to "what's wrong" to solve problems. What would happen if you focused on what is working rather than what isn't? Join Guest Host Roz Kay for a conversation with David Cooperrider, co-creator and creative thought leader of Appreciative Inquiry and co-author with Diana Whitney of A Positive Revolution in Change. Appreciative Inquiry involves discovering what gives life to a system or organization and involves the art of crafting the "unconditional positive question" to strengthen the capacity to see and develop the organization's potential. David will share the transformational qualities of AI, how and when to use it, and talk about the impact of using an AI approach to change. Join Roz and David for an opportunity to learn a change process that mobilizes change positively.

Georgetown ITL Faculty

The faculty of the Institute for Transformational Leadership at Georgetown University are multifaceted and diverse with respect to academic training, practical experience, expertise, and research interests. Perhaps the most striking aspect of the faculty is the community they have cultivated and the dialog they have advanced around leadership development and leadership coaching. Most of the original faculty members – those who helped establish Georgetown University’s leadership coaching program in 2000 – still teach and provide direction for leadership coaches and executive leaders, while new perspectives continue to evolve and inform our programs.

At the Institute for Transformational Leadership at Georgetown University, the faculty are exploring new transformative models of leadership, work, and change that can transform individuals, organizations, communities, governments and the global society. Join them each week for exciting conversations about transformational leadership.
