Appreciative Coaching (New Book)

I was just reading a press release about a new book that was just co-authored by Sara Orem, PhD, an adjunct faculty member at Capella University which is a fully accredited online university. They offer online learning for graduate degree programs in business, information technology, education, human services, and psychology, as well as bachelor’s degree programs in business and information technology. They offer 82 graduate and undergraduate specializations and 16 certificate programs and have tons of students in all 50 states and in 56 countries.

The book co-authored by Ms. Orem is called Appreciative Coaching and it focuses on, or is written for individual individual coaches of managers, executives, and “those who do one-on-one work with people who can influence and create change in their organizations.” It focuses on four major stages; Discovery, Dream, Design and Destiny to inspire and project the reader and the readers charges to an appreciative and empowering view of themselves and their future.

I am really interested in getting this book for myself. It sounds like, not only will it help me be a better leader in my business environment, It sounds like it could help me out at a mother and a friend.
