Sara Lewis, the Managing Director of Appreciating Change, a psychological change consultancy focused on helping leaders and managers achieve positive change in their organizations was my podcast guest. She is the author of Positive Psychology at Work: How Positive Leadership and Appreciative Inquiry Create Inspiring Organizations and one of my favorites, Appreciative Inquiry for Change Management: Using AI to Facilitate Organizational Development .

This is an outstanding addition to the series of Business901 podcasts on Appreciative Inquiry and Positive Change. Sarah works closely with the client to ensure partnership and ownership, we bring expertise in psychology and in social change methodologies such as Appreciative Inquiry, Open Space and World Café. All of these approaches help reduce resistance to change and the need to create ‘buy-in’, rather people co-create the change of which they will be part. This message resonates throughout the podcast.

This year Appreciating Change has begun offering a series of Masterclass workshops to give people the chance to learn directly from Sarah’s experience in the field of Positive Psychology and particularly the use of Appreciative Inquiry in the workplace. These run every 3 months and alternate between a Masterclass aimed at fellow practitioners, which is tailored to those who have some experience and understanding of the theory behind organizational change already, and a Masterclass aimed at leaders in organizations which is more aimed at helping them use this learning in their management of the organization.

1 thought on “Mastering Positive Change”

  1. Today change is happening at a rate that most really do not enjoy.

    Keep up the good work promoting the idea of change, those that don’t will be out of business or out of a job.
