Dynamic Relationships: Unleashing the Power of Appreciative Inquiry in Daily Living

How is it that some people seem to have great relationships and success in their lives while others do not? Why are some organizations successful at sustaining positive change while others make a great start but let it fade away? It rests on the dynamics of their relationships.

Creating positive dynamics and sustained success requires continuous awareness and informed appreciative action. Dynamic Relationships: Unleashing the Power of Appreciative Inquiry in Daily Living invites us to step into the appreciative paradigm where the principles governing our actions and relationships offer a means for increased value and meaning in our lives and our communities of work and play.

Dynamic Relationships offers us the opportunity to practice these principles through cycles of reflection and action in ways that empower us to become a force for creating and sustaining life-affirming relationships and success in daily living.

“Great work! I'm applying it ... and I'm grateful. It provides a simple way to shift our inner thinking and dialogue to "What is of value? What is working? When are we at our best in relation to others and ourselves?" It is the first book to bring Appreciative Inquiry straight into our personal lives.”

David Cooperrider, Co-Creator of Appreciative Inquiry and co-author of “The Appreciative Inquiry Handbook”

The Art of Inspired Living: Coach Yourself with Positive Psychology

This book is about learning to live your life more fully. It doesn't promise you abundant joy, the relationship of your dreams, untold riches or miracle cures. But what it does promise you is a comprehensive programme of personal development, change and growth that is highly effective. This coaching programme has been developed with two audiences in mind. The first is those who wish to coach themselves to success and who are confident about achieving positive results once they know the basic framework. The second audience is those who work as coaches and who are looking for new ideas and frameworks that they can build into their existing practice. Whatever has drawn you to this book - whether it is because you feel you have reached a crossroads in your life, because you have a very specific goal in mind, or because you are a coach looking for some fresh ideas - there is something here for you.

'The Art of Inspired Living invites its readers on a coaching journey that has the capacity to connect them in a direct and immediate fashion with that which is most important, meaningful and alive in their own lived experience. A unique feature of this text is the gentle yet challenging presence of its author in all chapters. Like a supportive, engaged and highly effective coach Sarah Corrie works alongside and with us, using a wide range of highly engaging exercises, stories and strategies to help us clarify our core sense of purpose, assess our lives and the choices we have made and commit to chosen new directions. This is a highly recommended and valuable resource both for those seeking support for their self-coaching journey as well as professional and experienced coaches who will find in its pages much-needed inspiration and ideas to further develop their capacity to beneficially impact their clients' lives.'
