The Joy of Appreciative Living: Your 28-Day Plan to Greater Happiness in 3 Incredibly Easy Steps
The Thin Book of Appreciative Inquiry is a national bestseller from Thin Book Publishing, a company started by author Sue Annis Hammond after the success of this book, which was her first. The book serves as an introduction to the organizational change philosophy of Appreciative inquiry, which is a “way of thinking, seeing, and acting for powerful, purposeful change in organizations”. The Thin Book series helps deliver cutting-edge knowledge “just in time” for organizations. Written in simple and clear to follow language, this book examines how Appreciative Inquiry is not just a recipe for change, but instead a thought process that will eventually show what an organization “does well, how it does, and design ways to do more of what works”. Instead of using traditional problem solving methods of separating, dissecting, and pulling apart, learn how AI can help generate “affirming images that pull people together”.
